Gluten-Free Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies

Are you a fan of the pumpkin cake roll that has a cream cheese filling? This soft pumpkin cookie is a cross between a whoopie pie and a pumpkin cake roll.

Chocolate-Hazelnut Macaroons

Chocolate and hazelnut is a delectable flavor combination. Although these chewy-crisp (and gluten-free) cookies are delicious on their own, you can make them even more elegant by sandwiching two together with some melted chocolate.

Healthy Makeover Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Revamped, these gems are still ooey-gooey good—but they’re only 80 calories each (with a gram of healthy fiber per cookie). We’ve also cut out half the fat and cholesterol you’d find in this treat’s calorie-laden cousins. Lose the guilt—and indulge!
