Want a fall treat to satisfy your sweet tooth? I love cookies because I can grab one or two and have them with a cup of coffee or a bottle of milk. And they are so much easier to make than a cake or pie or any other dessert that takes up too much of my time and kitchen space. I can make the dough ahead and freeze it and then pop the cookies it into the oven when I want a batch of fresh baked pumpkin spice cookies! YUM!

You will love these full of flavor cookies!!!!
