Pumpkin Cookies

by angelaskitchen on April 27, 2007

I ended up not using my crock pot yesterday.  I found a bunch of different recipes for doing polenta in the crock pot, but as I wasn’t going to be home yesterday to be able to watch it (I like to do that with a new recipe so there is no yucky, undercooked or overcooked surprises when you get home and think dinner is waiting for you), I decided to try a crock pot polenta this weekend.

I am making pumpkin cookies today.  I have little sweeties who love to bake and a friend who needs a little tasty love after having close encounters with her doctors this past week or so.  These are tasty, soft, and very comforting.  I hope you all enjoy them.  They are a big hit at my house!

I was bummed to find out I missed the Cookie Patrol yesterday! I am helping build a vineyard! How cool is that?!!?!?I adore the ‘love sprinkles’ on my pumpkin cookies, and as always they are simply delicious. Thanks a million to two of my favorite girls and one terrific mom for such a nice treat! It makes the past two weeks a lot more tolerable.
