It's fall everybody. Time to face facts and admit that fall has officially come. For all of you cold weather haters, like myself, it can be a hard time of the year. So to help you slowly ease into the season of cold weather and warm, comfortable foods I have a recipe for Pumpkin Sugar Cookies, just for you. These cooks are soft, light 'n fluffy, sweet, but still has that cozy taste of pumpkin in there. I hope you enjoy these as much as we did....we ate all of them, just the two of us, in about four days. I may or may not have eaten the majority of them. But we'll never know for sure. These are my new favorite fall-time cookies and I'm sure that they'll be your favorite as well!
