I found THIS recipe for Chocolate Glazed Pumpkin Cookies from Martha Stewart. I am not a fan of pumpkin pie, but I love a good pumpkin cookie, and since I am not a fantastic baker, the fact that Martha includes these on her list of “Our Easiest Cookie Recipes” made me not so intimidated to try it! I followed the recipe exactly and I must say they turned out super yummy! It really was an easy cookie to make and again, I am not a baker! If I could do it, so can you! See how good they look:
Since this recipe made so many cookies, I decided even though I probably could eat them all, it would be best for my waistline to give some away as gifts. So after they set in the refrigerator for 20 minutes and the chocolate hardened, I put them in cute little jars and added some ribbon. This was a cuter alternative to the normal plate wrapped in cellophane, right?
This idea could really be for anyone- teachers, coaches, neighbors, visiting teaching gifts etc. I already gave one away to my favorite person in the world! (Thanks for the chat, by the way if you are reading this!)
