I realize it's summer but just bear with me for a second.
Pumpkin is one of the greatest ingredients for baking. It adds a special twist and extra moisture. Thanks to the convenience of canned pumpkin, these delicious baked goods can be made all year long.
These cookies are perfectly soft and just melt in your mouth.
These will be a hit no matter what the crowd. Trust me.
