Who says you can only have Pumpkin treats in the fall?? I say break out that Libby’s Pumpkin Puree and make up a batch of homemade Frosted Pumpkin Cookies, just because! This recipe is very simple too! Frosted Pumpkin Cookies are some of my absolute favorite cookies, but use caution – it’s difficult to eat just one!
