Are you ready for some yummy fall spiced cookies?
It's like autumn exploded in your mouth.
These are pretty quick and easy for a scratch recipe. Doesn't take too long to mix them up all in one bowl. This is my new favorite pumpkin recipe. They'd be great with coffee in the morning or just a little snack. For me they're dinner. My eating habits are so horrible when the other half is out of town. I'm like a kid trying to get my hands on all the junk food possible. But this isn't junk food...it has pumpkin in it...which is a fruit...therefore it's healthy. Like my logic?
