Pumpkin Toffee Cookies

Bare with me for a second.  I wanted to make cookies...pumpkin cookies.

I wanted them to have a little something special.  Chocolate chips were a no brainer.

But I wanted more.  And so I thought...pumpkin spiced lattes. 

Pumpkin and coffee = goodness.

When I think of coffee, I think of toffee.  Maybe it is because they rhythm.  It could be a stretch.  I went from coffee to toffee. 

My cookie was born.

And they were good.  Really good.  A bit more cake like than chewy cookie but definitely really good.

    1. I had three right off and then took them to work. They were promptly eaten up.

  5. Mmm...Mmmmm... YES! These cookies look like perfect little mounds of goodness. I can eat more than one since it's full of healthy pumpkin too. :) Have a wonderful weekend. ~ Ramona
