I am NOT a good cook, and these were great! The cookie was sooo soft and fluffy!! I probably got a bit too much OJ in them, but will def make again!!

These are the first pumpkin cookies that I have ever made. I love pumpkin pie and pumpkin bread so I gave these a shot. I'm so glad I did. The orange and pumpkin are great together.
