Recipes: Pumpkin Cookies

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

This weekend, I made some pumpkin cookies for the Halloween festivities. I doubled the recipe and had enough cookies to feed an army! Scroll down for the recipe.
In case you are wondering, I did not plan my outfit to match the cookies. 
But it does make for fun photos, no?

The finished product.

I also added cream cheese frosting on the top, but we gobbled those up too fast for photos!

This recipe is from one of my old roommates, Shaye.
Here is the fabulous baker herself, with Bekah.
