One of my favorite things about fall is pumpkin…pumpkin everything! I will admit that I buy into the pumpkin spice coffees and snacks and I just can’t wait until they come around every year.
This year, I thought that maybe I would add in my own little touch of pumpkin yumminess. I wanted a great pumpkin cookie recipe to go with my other favorite cookies and I found the most delicious one ever.
This pumpkin cookie recipe is really simple to make and you just aren’t going to believe how delicious these little cookies are.
My family adored it. They gobbled up these pumpkin cookies in less than a day…and the recipe makes a couple of dozen cookies. Talk about a hit. These are super easy and so yummy when they’re done.
And, they are perfect for adding to your Halloween party table or any get together that you may be having this fall. And, they are great for a pumpkin flavored dessert option. I actually made them as dessert to follow this chicken enchilada soup.
I do love a good cookie recipe, especially for fall. There is nothing that I love more when the temperatures start to drop than getting in the kitchen and baking something.
These cookies are the perfect thing to bake up on a cool day. And, they’re great for office potlucks. Create a little fall cookie basket with these pumpkin cookies and these really yummy caramel apple and PB cookies.
They’re also super easy and the two together are perfect for filling your cookie jar this fall.
