Soft Pumpkin Snowball Cookies

Since these cookies mix up extremely fast, they don’t last long in our house. We love Fall and all the flavors of Fall baking, including pumpkin. A batch of these cookies helps to embrace the cooler weather.  And when they’re rolled in the powdered sugar they look like little snowballs. So grab a cup of coffee (or tea – for me) and go ahead and dive into a plate of cookies!
