I used to get so excited to go to my grandparent’s house for the holidays because I could already taste all the amazing food that was sure to be waiting! However, while I loved everything, I have to admit, I did have an all-time favorite…
My Grandma’s Pumpkin Cookies were oh-so-flavorful and had a soft, cake-like texture -- and I could never eat just one!
As a mother, I feel blessed to carry on the family recipe and recreate these precious moments from my past with my daughter!
And now you!
BONUS: They are so easy to make and you can get all the ingredients at your local Trader Joe’s.
