UPDATE: I DECIDED TO USE SOME OF MY CREAM CHEESE FROSTING ON THE COOKIES I HAD TODAY. ALTHOUGH GREAT WITHOUT, THESE WERE AWESOME WITH IT!!! Yum! These are FANTASTIC!!! My hubs and I treated our new neighbors to dinner at our favorite Mexican hangout and in turn, they gifted us with spiced wine and the most delicious pumpkin cookies I've EVER tasted. My hubs is not a fan of anything pumpkin, so I was the one to INHALE (yes, inhale...) them! :) I haven't been able to ask my neighbor for her cookie recipe, so I decided to see what I could find on here. To my surprise, these taste EXACTLY like the ones she made us! My only change was to add 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice, simply because I had some handy. I purchased a container of prepared cream cheese frosting, but decided to not use any of it (these are perfect as is, IMHO). NOTE: If placing your cookies in an airtight container, DO NOT seal them until completely cooled. If you do, the steam that condenses on the lid of your container will make your cookies gummy. This in no way affects the flavor, but they will be a bit sticky (which is off putting). Thanks for sharing such a great recipe, CARRUTH! This one's going in my "keeper" file for sure. :-)
