Pumpkin Cookies

Posted on

I haven’t posted anything since I started work in September, but we’re off for a couple of days to celebrate Thanksgiving! As I was baking pies today I found myself with some leftover pumpkin puree and needed to figure out what to do with it. A quick Google search brought me to the Food Network and an article titled, “50 Canned Pumpkin Recipes“. Buried deep in the article (number 42) was a recipe for cookies. Now, I understand that there are a million+ pumpkin cookie recipes, but I was looking for something easy. And these cookies are definitely that, as well as fabulously delicious! I figured that I could easily find a little more in-depth version of the recipe on Pinterest, but alas it wasn’t there! So, I decided I would create that very thing!
