  1. Agreed, there is always room for more pumpkin recipes :) And these do look amazing, my kind of pumpkin cookies, I'm not a fan of the puffy, cakey pumpkin cookies! Thanks for linking up with us at the Wednesday Showcase!

    1. Sometimes I like the cakey cookies - but pumpkin pie actually isn't my favorite! I wanted to have another option in my holiday baking arsenal! :)
