Fall is here! Fall is here!!! This is everyone’s favorite time of year and there are so many fun and tasty things to do!!!  I have dusted off the picnic basket and given my hubby fair warning that we will be going on many picnics this year.

Nothing is more pleasurable to me than a nice shady spot in the warm Autumn sun with a great bottle of wine and tasty morsels all spread on a blanket.  I am totally sure that these cookies will be attending our first picnic. I am obsessed with these amazing cookies.  I first saw them on Pinterest Here from Parent Pretty Blog and I knew that I must have these.

I have made a few changes from the original recipe by changing up the spices to resemble a Pumpkin Pie flavor and the frosting is quite a bit different in my recipe. Let me just say that these cookies Deliver Big Time!!They are the best cookie I have had in my mouth all year!!!  The addition of cloves really makes the difference.  What I really love about these cookies are how light and airy they are.

This comes from using very soft butter and then whipping air in while creaming with the sugar.  The pumpkin also helps to keep the dough light.

Please take heed and do not skip the step of properly chilling your dough.  Cookies always bake up better when the dough is chilled.  When you use such soft butter chilling is required unless you want flat messy gooey cookies.  So please really CHILL your dough.
