Grandpa Ben's Pumpkin Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by kittyliz64

Grandpa always had these cookies in a refrigerator tin at Holiday Time These were my all time favorites growing up. Too good not to share. They also do well at high altitude, no adjustments needed. I live at 9500 feet. These are a soft cookie and may be refridgerated, if they last that long.
