Cranberry Pistachio Cheese Ball - a perfect holiday appetizer | Get the recipe on MyCookingSpot.com!

Thanksgiving is probably the only holiday I can think of where appetizers are never really needed.

I mean, think about it. If you’re part of the Feast Cooking Team, you’re “tasting” all day, to the point where you can barely eat a full plate come dinner time.

Carrot Cake Mix Cookies - My Cooking Spot-3

Hey y’all! Stephanie from Sustaining the Powers here again. I have a quick holiday treat go-to recipe to share with you today – Carrot Cake Mix Cookies. I don’t know about you, but in my family, Carrot Cake is eaten year round, not just at Easter. We especially love it around Halloween and Thanksgiving because of its mix of fall spices and its fun streaks of orange color from the carrots. Plus it’s a vegetable, so that makes these more “healthy” right? Breakfast cookies maybe?
