Darlene, it is a rare moment these days when I bake or cook, but I swear upon my most precious Persian rug I am going to try these cookies.

They look more like breakfast muffins!

These were the best pumpkin cookies I have tasted. I must admit I only used 1/4tsp Nutmeg as I do not like the flavor or taste of the spice, which I think helped the cookie not have such a strong nutmeg flavor.
These cookies were very light and just plain ole delicious!!
