These are so yummy! The frosting is the best part.
These are my go-to pumpkin cookies. They are always a hit and I always get asked for the recipe.
I must have done something wrong (maybe too much flour?) because these came out with the taste and texture of cinnamon pancakes. Not bad, but not at all what I expected.
My daughter and I have made this recipe several times now. These cookies are always a hit. We add chocolate chips to them and leave the frosting off; although, I have used the frosting on gingerbread cake with great success.
These were a huge hit. I'm usually a chocolate - only person, but even I can't stop eating these.
