I always love when November come because that means it's Thanksgiving time. And that's normally when family gets together and all the big companies start advertising there best pumpkin desserts, pumpkin pies, pumpkin cakes, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin cookies, even pumpkin drinks. And it's also the time when the best cooks in the family get to working on there famous dish or best meals for the family. There is one dessert this is really good and you eat for the holiday or all year around, it's pumpkin cookies. Yes they are so good and soft and what's good about them is that you can put different kinds of frosting on top of them and eat them warm or cold with a glass of milk or coffee. Memories are very important to families and I bet you once you make these cookies your family will remember you. And they will ask you when will you make those soft pumpkin cookies again because they were good. But you might want to only make them for special occasions just to teas them. Once your known in the family as a great cook you will always be invited to dinners or parties because they will be hoping you make one of your special dishes. I always enjoyed the taste of pumpkin, when Thanksgiving come around I would look for those tasty cake pumpkin pies, but know all I want is those soft pumpkin cookies.
