pumpkin and chocolate cookies

it's me, ali, taking over the blog again!

so, i love to bake. more specifically, i like to bake and then force my friends to eat the baked items (which is never difficult to get them to do). this is my specialty/frequently demanded/favorite/go-to recipe...i'm not going to lie, it's a little tough to release it to the world!

these are the perfect fall cookies, you will not regret making them (i don't even like pumpkin but i love these)!
