I love pumpkin cookies. When I see them in the grocery store with the bright orange icing on them, I get all nostalgic because when The Mr. and I were early in our relationship, a now defunct grocery chain made these really awesome ones that other grocery stores just don't seem to compare to. I'm still searching for that ultimate pumpkin cookie recipe but these are some great ones that I found and put my own spin on and to say the family loved them is an understatement. They're thinking of asking me to make them for Thanksgiving (which I think was basically them testing the waters to see if I was open to it. Sure add a 4th thing I'm supposed to bring. *Pfft*) These babies are good on their own, dipped in glaze or used as adorable mini whoopie pies. They stay fresh, moist and light for the length of their little lives. (Okay, I'm going to confess something. I made a buttload of these and after I brought them to the Mr's birthday celebration I put them in the fridge and totally forgot about them! It had been a week since I made them, they were still in perfect condition but tasted of fridge because they were in a crappy thin ziptop bag. I threw away pumpkin cookies! Who am I!?! Those suckers wouldn't have lasted 3 days here in the olden days!) So yeah, these are the things I was talking about yesterday that would be perfect to take a loverly dunk in your morning coffee, tea, milk, hot chocolate, water...okay maybe not water.
