They will come out like this in all its pumpkin glory and everyone will love them and thus love you for making them.  Plus it makes your whole house smell like pumpkin, which is never bad.

I doubled the recipe to use the entire can of pumpkin, which may or may not have been a good idea, but it sure did make a whole ton of cookies!  Luckily I just send them to work with my wife and all the people in her hospital love her for it.

If you are looking for a good desert to make this fall, this is always a good one to make.

Also if you want to try something AMAZING, try the Pumpkin Snickerdoodles.

    “Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. ”

    Do you stir into the flour or the pumpkin mixture? Does it matter?

    doesn’t matter. Stir it in when you mix it all together.
