Pumpkin Spice Cookies

These chewy, moist cookies are easy to make and delicious. The amount of pumpkin in this recipe has high amounts of beta-carotene, which is convertible to vitamin A – necessary for healthy vision and cell growth. Have this available as an alternative to cookies with particularly high levels of refined sugar. Makes 36 3-inch cookies
