Earlier this week I compiled a little list of things I want to do this fall. Don’t get me wrong, but I am 100% in the autumn state of mind, and I am truly loving every moment of it. I can’t wait to Eat Caramel Apples, Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes and to carve Pumpkins and put them on window box. I Looking forward to Apple Picking, Long Walks and Jumping in Leaves and (maybe) trip to Paris, France…… Seriously, where do i even begin? I dreamed about spending an extended period of time, traveling through France and Europe even from a time of study, eleven years ago. Paris is always the city that makes me feel the most inspired, the most awestruck, the most wide-eyed, the most happy. Having a dream come true is a rare, beautiful, and bittersweet thing. Soooo, back to today sweet treat. My looking forward fall season list is not over, yup, hopefully melt-in-your-mouth pumpkin cookies are on that list. SOFT. FROSTED. PUMPKIN. SUGAR. COOKIES. Yup, that pretty much sums it up. Melt in your mouth Pumpkin Cookies I’ve been searching for the perfect pumpkin cookies recipe for awhile, don’t know about you, but I LOVE a good sugar cookie. Especially if pumpkin is involved in some way. And I FINALLY find on Better Homes and Gardens a chewy, soft pumpkin cookie recipe that – gasp!! – Chewy, chewy, chewy and oh-so-soft. Seriously!! You have to try these cookies this pumpkin season. They are easy to make, stay soft for days and are just the right amount of spicy and sweet. Alone they are kind of boring, but with the glaze, they are addicting.

    Not sure that the butter should be melted as stated in the recipe. I have made these twice, once with melted, once with room temperature butter and the room temp was much better. Great cookies regardless!
