I cannot stress how happy pumpkin makes me. Pumpkin pie is my absolute favorite thing ever. If I had to choose a food that I would eat for my last meal if I knew I was dying…pumpkin pie. I have pumpkin pie as my birthday cake every year, and it kind of starts the pie season (being October 1st). Then comes Thanksgiving, my sister Amy’s birthday, Christmas (and then usually our delayed second Thanksgiving over the Christmas holiday break to make up for one of the siblings who may have missed out that year etc). Pie is a huuuge deal in our house. Anyways, pumpkin has become one of my absolute favorite things to bake with.
I love the cinnamon-y warm deliciousness that goes along with using it. I love how it automatically makes me feel like Fall and Winter are near. These cookies are a great option to bake the night before a week starts, they are midly healthier than other cookies (not very much butter), and are wonderful for this time of year. Love em! Oaty and spice-y. So much happiness.
