Was thinking about making cookies. Then I didn't feel like getting my hands all icky playing in the cookie dough. Saw a few cans of pumpkin puree left over from my pumpkin pie experiments...went to work. After a few test on my batter I came up with something pretty yummy, and pretty in the spirit of the Autumn season. M y friends on Friday night gaming enjoyed them a lot. Even the husband who hates pumpkin stuff liked it. Enjoy!
