I am dying to try this recipe sent in by Rachel at Olives and Yarn. I like pumpkin and I like chocolate, but I never would have thought of combining the two. Now Tim, on the other hand, would consider combining chocolate with ANYTHING! Hmmm… maybe I could actually get him to eat asparagus if I dipped it in chocolate, but I digress! Anyway, we would like to thank Rachel for sharing these yummy looking cookies. Make sure you drop by Olives and Yarn and say hi!
Here is a cookie recipe for Wee Folk Art. This is a favorite recipe in our household. They are really good, and we bake them quite frequently. The original recipe actually came from another site, www.tollipop.typepad.com and then I made some slight modifications to it. I have attached a picture and here is the recipe. Thanks!

1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
A little over 1/2 can of pumpkin

Salt to taste
