Pumpkin Cookies

I love baking for the holidays and Halloween/Thanksgiving cookies are especially one of my favorites.  My mom makes THE best pumpkin cookies, and are in high demand…even out of season.  For a few years, one of my friends even asked for the cookies for her birthday presents!  When I bake the cookies, they are delicious, but somehow don’t taste quite as good as my mother’s.  It must be a mother’s touch.  But, give these cookies a try and I promise they will turn out amazing, mouthwatering, and won’t leave you disappointed!
