I took these delightful pumpkin cookies to a "ladies tea" at our church. Everyone loved them and they were one of the first cookies to disappear. So according to the church ladies, they say, "5-stars".

I made these cookies for my daughters Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast. I put a small dolop of whipped cream on each one and the kids loved them. Four moms called me today asking for the recipe. We will be making these again.

This was a very easy recipe to make. It is not very sweet even though it calls for a cup of sugar total. It tastes a lot like pumkin bread. This is a good recipe if you are looking for something that isn't too sweet.
