I promised myself that when I made these I would only eat 2. HA! Yeah, who was I kidding. I had 4 through out the course of the day because I just couldn’t help myself. lol I decided I better get rid of them, so I packed up the rest and sent them over to my mother in-law and nephew.

These cookies are so incredibly delicious. The maple cream frosting pairs so perfectly with the pumpkin flavor. If there is any pumpkin recipe you make this fall please let it be these cookies! And then report back to me to let me know what you think. 🙂
