It is that time of year again when all things pumpkin flavored are consumed. Since I’ve known my husband, he has hated all things that are pumpkin flavored. He will give them a try but the end result is the same, he is has no interest in taking another bite. That is until I made these cookies. He devoured several of these and was really sad that he had to share them at a party that evening. Several people came up to me that evening saying how they usually hate cookies but these were really delicious. When looking at the image of these cookies, I spent the most time trying to figure out what the little chunks were in the image. In the end, I decided butterscotch chips and cranberries were a good combination with the pumpkin base. Time for another delicious Don’t Starve recipe! Let’s get baking.
