Pumpkin Cookies - A Fall Treat
With crisp mornings and leaves in autumnal colors, I began to have a strong desire for pumpkin. Pumpkin is such a versatile food. You can make many wonderful dishes from this squash.... everything from soups to pastries. So, with only a few days between my travels, I decided on something easy. A long-time favorite, old-fashioned soft pumpkin cookies, are simple to make. When topped as shown here, with a cream cheese frosting, they make a delicious and rich fall treat. A few fall sprinkles complete the effect.
