Pumpkin Cookies (Gluten Free)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lingering_Dream

These are great during the fall season (or anytime!) These cookies are very moist and cake-like. Very yummy! I got this recipe from a forum on celiac.com. You can either make them gluten free or not.

As I made this recipe, I questioned the amount of baking powder it called for. I should have followed my instincts and reduced it at least by half. The cookies blew up to the size of 1/2 a baseball and then shrank as they cooled to resemble a large, orange prune! They tasted ok, but with the way they presented, I could not bring them to a luncheon as I planned.
