These are so easy, I'm almost embarassed to post this. Great recipe for kids to get started with baking....or just for a quick treat.

Anyone who knows me knows that I don't really like to bake. And, I really don't like to bake cookies. But, this recipe was simple enough that I was willing to sacrifice to make it. Besides...pumpkin spice? What can be wrong about that? LOL I tackled the recipe late one Sunday evening to satisfy a craving. I wasn't so thrilled with the cookies that night. They seemed dry and lacking a little in flavor. HOWEVER, the next morning, after sealed overnight in a rubbermaid container, the cookies really seemed to come into their own. They were dense, but moist; the spices came to life with the pumpkin flavor; they were very good with my coffee. They were everything that I like my cakey cookies to be. I will probably make these again to satisfy my sweet tooth, but I won't be baking them at 10pm at night again. LOL
