Recipe for Pumpkin Waffle Cookies

Recipe for Pumpkin Waffle Cookies
Cookies don’t always need to be baked in the oven. In fact, it’s fun to bake these Pumpkin Waffle Cookies on a waffle iron. My Granddaughter, Bella and her friend MaKaylee had a lot of fun making these delicious fall treats; they’ve become a favorite already at both of their homes, and were gobbled up very quickly by family members. These cookies capture popular fall flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
If you have a tablespoon-size scoop (available at department stores, discount stores, restaurant supplies, and on-line), these cookies are especially easy, and the cookies come out uniform in size. They take only a minute or two to bake, so kids can taste in less time than having to wait for a cookie sheet full of cookies in the oven.
