I’d like to introduce you to my new favorite cookie.
Not only do they look like pumpkins they taste like the most wonderful pumpkin cookie.
I made them based off my Snowball Cookie Recipe, otherwise, know as “the Wedding Cookie”. Mexican Wedding Cookies, Italian Wedding Cookies, you know them, right?
These are melt in your mouth cookies! I can’t rave over them enough myself or you might get bored, but others said they LOVE me when they had them and they aren’t even related to me.

- 3 cups flour
