Pumpkin Drop Cookies

I am crazy for pumpkin and cinnamon!  The funny thing is when I was little I did not like it.  It must be a thing you grow in to! My amazing neighbor brought these delish Pumpkin Drop Cookies over to me on “The Giving Plate” and I was so delighted!

Pumpkin Drop Cookies

First, I want to tell you about the giving plate! It is such a special gift during the holidays.  There are a lot of bakers out there.  This is your time to bake and share your gift on this special plate. Covid has brought so much sadness to the world and this plate made my day.  I also loved the Pumpkin Drop Cookies! The message on the plate is special and will brighten your loved ones day! You can pick up some of these plates on Amazon! Affiliate Link: The Giving Plate
