Iced Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love Fall. The crisp chill in the air. The smell of wood-burning fire in the air. The beautiful colors. And, of course, the food. Oh, the food! Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin scones, pumpkin ice cream. (Do you see a theme?) Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!

I’ve been craving some serious pumpkin treats lately, so I thought I’d share a recipe of one of our Fall favorites. These never last long in our house and they’re a favorite at holiday gatherings as well!
