Pumpkin Date Cookies

Russ Myers


You can make these cookies with any type of squash. We've made them with mini winter squash too – either way – they taste amazing. If you’re using leftover pumpkin flesh, make sure the pumpkin is made for eating as well as carving, otherwise it won’t have much flavor.
