This Recipe is from All Recipes.com However, I have had this recipe for years, passed down from my Grandma. Her version calls for a cream cheese frosting that is added on top of each cookie and it's like biting into a piece of Heaven ! I have loved this cookies all my life. Grandma would make them during the fall, but they are good at any time, if you love pumpkin. My mom dislikes pumpkin, anything pumpkin, so she never made these at all. When I got married and had children I knew we needed to make these cookies during fall just like grandma did for me. My kids love anything pumpkin, so does hubby ! Which is good, so I can indulge in pumpkin goodies but don't have to worry about eating it all. etc. It goes fast in our house. ENJOY ! Leave a comment and let me know what you think !
