More cookies…good cookies…pumpkin cookies!
I decided to make three versions of this cookie – plain chocolate chip, pecan and walnut. All three were a hit! My 5 year old downed the plain chocolate chip, one daughter the pecan, her friend the walnut, and another daughter loved them all. I send care packages back to school with each of them and still had plenty to last us a week at home.
