I know I already posted a pumpkin cookie recipe, but I found this one and liked it better....In fact, we even liked them without frosting. They had a great amount of spice and were super moist. Of course cream cheese frosting would be fantastic on these, too. We just skipped it this time. I also just made a half batch and it gave us lots of cookies.
