Yes, I mean Potato, not Pumpkin.  haha!  I know it sounds strange to have potatoes in your cookies but trust me, these Potato Spice Cookies are wonderful!  My mom was always baking something when we were kids and when we came home from school, the delicious smells of homemade bread or cookies would greet us at the door.  I’ll never forget those smells.  And today when I whipped up a batch of these Potato Spice Cookies, the smells took me back to mom’s kitchen.  They smell just as good as they taste!

We’ve got a couple holidays coming up and you will more than likely have mashed potatoes on your table at some point.  If you’ve got leftovers, save 1 cup of them for this recipe (be sure they’re plain mashed potatoes, no garlic, sour cream, etc)!  I guarantee that no one will ever know that there are mashed potatoes in their cookies!  haha!  I also love the fact that this recipe uses honey instead of sugar (sugar-less cookies are always a good thing!) and there are no eggs in it so it’s great for those with egg allergies!  The blend of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg are delicious and perfect for fall!  Be sure to add these cookies to your fall baking list!
