i'm not sure what it is about these cookies, but they're the perfect consistency -- i'm no baking expert, but my guess is the pumpkin. . .  or the fact that i couldn't find the teaspoon anywhere so i just threw in a reasonable amount of salt + baking soda + hoped for the best haha! okay but actually, these beauties are seriously the easiest to make + delicious to eat! let me know if you end up using the recipe! i know thanksgiving is tomorrow [#procrastinationnation] but they're a great option if your still looking for an easy dessert option or an alternative to pie, or a dish to bring to an after-thanksgiving friendsgiving!
