With a drop in the temperatures this week, I’m getting pretty excited about fall!  It’s time to pull out my down comforter and favorite scarves, get ready to watch the leaves change, and enjoy nights by the fire with hot cider and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.   To help celebrate this exciting fall milestone, we thought it would be fun to share this long-time favorite pumpkin cookie recipe.  They’re sure to get everyone in your house ready to pull out the sweaters, scarves and mittens in anticipation of the season to come!
