    I never really thought I was a pumpkin fan until I took a bite of these Pumpkin Sugar Cookies. I was happy to oblige since it’s the season of pumpkin everything, but once again, I was surprised. The subtle pumpkin flavor paired with cream cheese makes these soft and chewy Pumpkin Sugar Cookies irresistible.

    A cookie should look as good as it tastes and these certainly do. They’re also stackable, making them great for gift-giving. Why limit cookie sharing to Christmas? ‘Tis the season of being thankful and takes the pressure off during the holidays. You can stack them in a small cellophane bag and wrap them with a ribbon, or simply secure the bag with a piece of washi tape. Place them in a charming basket for a beautiful housewarming or hostess gift.
