Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies
With Halloween, November and Thanksgiving right around the corner, I am in a baking mood! It's in full effect and the ingredient is respectfully, PUMPKIN!
I tried out the Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies that Tiffany over at http://imashoewhore.blogspot.com/ posted recently. I always look forward to her Friday recipes :)
The cookies are great just by themselves.. but the glaze adds just enough of a sweet kick. I brought them to work, and they were gone by lunch time!!
