Make It a Meal Monday: Pumpkin Cookies

Fall is in the air, pumpkin seems to be in all my recipes, and Make It a Meal Monday is on Tuesday.

Our weekends have been filled with races and the sound of Greg typing away on a 25 page project for school.  He and Hazel did give us a few hours this weekend to portrait model at the park. Walking around the fallen leaves with the trees changing color really got me in the mood to make something pumpkiny.

Side note: Until December 14, the home project moratorium is in place. Never fear, I have a few projects we did that I still need to post.

Earlier in the week, a friend posted these cake like pumpkin chocolate cookies on Facebook and I knew they needed to me in my stomach.  Greg promptly agreed after showing him her cookie picture.

You’ll get a little over two dozen cookies from the batter and if your homes are anything like mine, they won’t last more than three days.
