Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookies!

The other day while I was doing my typical afternoon spend time looking at different food blogs I came across a pumpkin cookie recipe.  The second I read the recipe I knew I was making it.  For a quick second I thought about making pumpkin pie, but then realized how much I really didn’t want to deal with a pie crust so I opted for a dessert-less Thanksgiving.. unless someone else was going to make something.  I’ll let you know if that happens.  The thought of making no dessert did feel a bit odd as I do love pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and apple pie quite a bit.  I grew up with having the option to eat all three every Thanksgiving.  In fact I grew up with the most delicious Thanksgiving spread.  More variety than I’ve ever seen anywhere else.  All homemade too!  But coming off a bout of food poisoning I decided to take it easy.  I made these cookies this afternoon and they are delicious.  Extremely fluffy, not too sweet, and plenty of pumpkin flavor.  I stacked mine on parchment paper to prevent sticking.  I’m going to take the advice I read and leave them out on the counter overnight.  Click for the recipe.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!


I'm not even going to try to lie, I have eaten 6 of these already!

My mom made the same cookies and her beautiful pumpkin pie :)

    Happy Thanksgiving. Wanted you to be a part of our celebration and because I had leftover pumpkin from the pie, thought I would try something you were making. Just pulled these from the oven, and you are right – they are delicious! So easy to make too. They will be a hit with all who try them. I can see how you ate so many. Thanks for sharing.
