Well its October which means just about everything is pumpkin flavored! After spending the weekend pureeing a pumpkin and making these cute pumpkin dog treats, I decided to make some pumpkin cookies! These pumpkin cookies are an easy pumpkin treat that is perfect for fall. Thick and cakey cookies with white chocolate to give them a rich sweetness.
