He called me into the kitchen and within 20 minutes, I was enjoying this sinfully delicious, yet slightly less guilt-ridden, dessert! For added fun, we used two ice cream scoop sizes to create the Mickey shape. Because we're cool like that.
Here's the recipe! The best part is not only that it's gluten free, but there is also no oil, butter, or eggs! No, the pictured ingredients are not organic, but I'm sure you can find suitable organic options that will taste just as good!
Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Hidden Mickey Cookies
1 box gluten free sugar cookie mix
1/2 can (about 7.5 ounces) pure pumpkin
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbs pumpkin spice
1 tbs water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 bag chocolate chips (or nuts, raisins, whatever strikes your fancy)
Preheat the oven to 350. In a large mixing bowel, whisk dry ingredients. Add pumpkin, water, and vanilla, beat on low-medium until smooth. Mix in chocolate chips. Using a large ice cream scoop, arrange cookie dough on a greased baking tray with 1-2 inches of space between. Use a small ice cream scoop to add the ears, and bake for 13 minutes, or until golden brown and dough bounces back when touched gently on top. Remove to a cooling rack and enjoy!
