I had left over pumpkin and I knew if I put that in the fridge I wouldn’t use it today and probably not tomorrow or the next day ….and well…it would go bad! So it was COOKIE TIME!! These are great with Semi-sweet chocolate chips added or cranberries or raisins or whatever! That is what makes these little drop cookies so fun.
