Why I Love This Recipe

Halloween is just around the corner! These pumpkin cut out cookies are perfect for school and Halloween parties for all those hungry little goblins! Not only are they delicious and flavorful with pumpkin, nutmeg, cloves and ginger, but they are as much fun to make as they are to eat! Fast and easy, prepare the dough a day in advance and let chill in the fridge overnight or place in freezer for about 30 minutes to make rolling out and cookie cutting easy! Decorate, bake and eat! These store and freeze well. This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies.
