Pumpkin cookies

Well, I have refrained from putting a plethora of  pumpkin recipes on here as of late.  But, I couldn't resist one more before we all start looking forward to everyone posting about their favorite Christmas cookie recipes and all things candy cane!  Don't get me wrong, I too am already scouring Pinterest, magazines, and my favorite blogs to begin putting together "THE LIST".  Last year I loaded up on all things chocolate for Christmas....I will probably do that again, because....I love chocolate....

But this beautiful recipe keeps things in perspective....It's not December yet people!!!  Alas we have already had a huge dump of snow...(and I have already begun to listen to Christmas music - don't tell David!!!) is a lovely fall recipe to take me back to the lovely days where the air was crisp, with a hint of smokiness from fireplaces, colored leaves falling gracefully to the ground, and the promise of comfort with hot teas, warm scones, and heart warming stews, chilis, and soups....OK, its gonna be a loooooooong winter up here.

These are a beautifully soft pumpkin cookie with a lovely sweetness of white chocolate.  My husband loved them.  So as  you carve up your pumpkins this week for Trick or Treat day,  remember this recipe and make it for your families.  The kids and hubbies will love opening their lunch boxes to these sweet and spicy treats!!!
