Meet My Little Friends!

Ok, so I didn't make the post I promised on Monday. We had a flag football game and I got back a little too late and didn't feel like baking, but I will remedy that right now. I love pumpkin and this is one of my favorite pumpkin recipes. I got this recipe some time ago from a cookbook that I acquired somehow. I can't remember where I got it, but I love it. It is one of those cookbooks that you can tell is used a lot by all the torn pages and little bits of stains on the pages from oil & such. My family loves these cookies too. It makes quite a few cookies and I have never made them with the butterscotch chips since nobody else here would eat them if I did put them in. I replace those with mini chocolate chips. They are soft and moist and will stay that way for days. In my house they never last more than 2 days. I have posted the recipe below.

I also received the results of my MRI yesterday and they came back ok. They aren't sure of what is causing my headaches though. I have to go have my eyes checked now to ensure that isn't it. The doctor thinks it could be stress related. Me?? Stressed out??? Impossible! Anyways thank you for your well wishes. They were very much appreciated, and now for the recipe

1/2 Cup butter softened
1 Cup sugar
1-15 oz can pumpkin

Ooh, I am definitely making these at the B&B! I'd use chocolate chips, too. I love pumpkin and chocolate! I'm glad to hear your MRI went well.
