This is the recipe for my favorit fall cookies. Actually I couldn't find the recipe I always used, but this one is really close, just we always amde them without the chocolate chips and with vinilla frosting instead. So give it a try and enjoy. I don't even like pumpkin normally but I LOVE these :)
