Pumpkin White Chocolate Cookies

There is nothing that I love to do more in the Fall than bake...while drinking apple cider, wearing leggings, and burning pumpkin scented candles. You know. All the things everyone else loves to do in the Fall.

It feels like everyone was very excited for Fall this year. I was shocked by the amount of people lining up for a pumpkin spice latte in August and busting out their boots and sweaters the first week of September. If you remember, I was holding onto summer in every way possible, wearing flip flops like they were going out of style, and I was in no hurry to retire my summer dresses. Actually, as I write this, I'm wearing one right now. Ha! I'm not the only one experiencing summer like temperatures lately, right? What's going on mother nature? Let's get the seasons straight!  

Not that I'm complaining. 

Maybe a little.

So. THESE COOKIES. I made them while we were experiencing Fall-like temperatures. It was chilly in the morning. There was a breeze outside. It was heavenly. As soon as that happens I make these cookies.

They are my absolute favorite Fall treat. All the flavors of the season in one cookie. Pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. These cookies are so soft and fluffy, I bet you can't just eat one. You'll be coming back for more and who knows, these might become your Fall staple too.
