pumpkin cookies

Mr. M and Mr. R were thrilled to be able to gut a couple of pumpkins for me yesterday. I want to make pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cookies and I'm even considering making pumpkin butter.

The kids had a great attitude about not getting to decorate their pumpkins this year. In
exchange for their pumpkins the first thing on my list to bake was the pumpkin cookies (I thought it was only fair to the kids). My Auntie J sent me a great recipe a couple of years ago for these cookies, but of course I messed with it! It was good, but it had the potential to be somewhat healthy too, so I used whole grain flour, used my own pumpkins instead of canned, reduced the sugar and added more vanilla (I think that was all I did to it). The kids all loved them and said they turned out better than last year (when I did not mess with them so much)!
