Keto Frosted Pumpkin Spice Cookie Recipe

This recipe makes 12 cookies. The cookies are a little dense and not the sweetest because the frosting is super sweet! You can sweeten the cookie batter a little more and forego the frosting to save on a few carbs. You can substitute the monk fruit sweetener for one of your choice, but be sure to reference a conversion chart. If you decide to experiment and change up the recipe, let me know what you tried, and how it turned out!
