Iced Spiced Pumpkin Yodels

Baking is my favorite hobby, well besides working out & hanging with my friends & family. I love to bake. Although I eat healthy and cook meals for my husband and I daily, I’d much rather be baking. I found a delicious pumpkin cookie recipe online years ago and I swear by it. It converts pumpkin haters into pumpkin lovers. Well it changed 1 pumpkin hater, my sister.  She loves these cookies! And these aren’t your ordinary cookies, they are soft, thick, and almost muffin like cookies that melt in your mouth. The recipe is as followed:
