The first time I ran into a version of this recipe was when I went to visit my sister when she lived in New York City. She lived in a tiny apartment on Wall Street, just a block or so from the New York Stock Exchange. I remember her roommates making pumpkin cookies in their teeny tiny dark kitchen (there was only one window in the whole apartment and it was in one of the bedrooms). But no matter the size of the kitchen, these beauties made their mark on me. I’ve made these cookies ever since, but have finally tweaked the recipe to be just what I love in a pumpkin cookie. It’s a very simple recipe. Are you ready?!!
