Found this recipe in a Taste of Home Christmas book. Looking for a recipe to use pumpkin I put up this summer. Wonder favor tie to them and a surprise.

I made these for the lunch boxes for the coming week and most were eaten straight from the oven. Great flavour and great golden colour. I skipped the nuts and topped them with vanilla sugar. A very very yummy and easy recipe !
