Don’t you love fall with all the pumpkin recipes? I have been making these Pumpkin Cookies for decades. They do not have any eggs in them and they rise really high. Usually when I make these Pumpkin Cookies I frost them with a buttercream or cream cheese frosting but this year I decided to leave the frosting off.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for

14 – 16 minutes (for the ice cream scoop size)

If you dropped by a heaping tablespoon,

bake for 10-12 minutes or until

golden brown on the bottom.
