Pumpkin Cookies

A friend of mine on Facebook sent me a recipe for Pumpkin Cookies. I thought they sounded good, but made a few changes when I made them. Here’s the recipe the way I made it:

I used regular all-purpose flour tonight, but next time will probably make them with at least half wheat flour. They seem like they would taste better with a flour that’s a bit heartier than regular white flour. They were delicious though!
