Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

If you combined pumpkin cupcakes and pumpkin muffin tops, you’d get these cookies. I’m not sure how that hybrid works, but they’re cookies nonetheless, and they are delicious! Beware: they’re chewy, flavorful and addicting. As you begin to think ahead to Thanksgiving, consider adding these cookies to the mix. I know pies are the usual Thanksgiving dessert, but your guests will be very happy to see these cookies on the dessert spread.

Thank you to Katie M. for sharing this recipe!
