A little late, as in about 3 months late. Yeah, that's how long it's been since I've contributed to this blog. I feel like such a failure sometimes. I know we ALL have busy lives so I really have no excuse. I baked some pumpkin cupcakes recently and had tons of leftover pumpkin puree so I obviously had no excuse for skipping this recipe. I know I'm a week late in posting but that's better than nothing, right? For the spices, I didn't have ground cloves so I substituted in 1/2 tsp of All Spice and 1/2 tsp of Nutmeg since the cupcake recipe I used called for both of those and it was really good. I was also out of vegetable oil and I used canola oil in it's place. I'm not sure if the oil was a factor but my cookies just didn't look ANYTHING like the ones in the pictures or like the ones you lovely ladies posted. They were flat like pancakes, no rise. Oh well, they still tasted great. The cream cheese frosting was wonderful and will be my go-to for cream cheese frosting from now on.
I hope you ladies all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I wish you all luck with the holidays!
