The perfect Fall cookie

Fall is in full swing and that means everything pumpkin, spice and yummy is everywhere!  It seems like every store smells of all the best of fall… a little cinnamon, a little spice and a little sweet.  

The Hubby loves this season as much as I do and has been handing out little “thank you’s” to his clients.  He has given some these chocolate chip cookies, fall maple crunch and then some peanut butter cookie brownies but these little pumpkin delights are my favorite of the bunch for sure.  They are light but loaded with tons of flavor in each bite.  For this go around I used white chocolate chips and dried cranberries but you could use semi sweet chips or milk chocolate chips with any dried fruit you like or chopped nuts you like.  Next time I am thinking dark chocolate chips with dried cherries…I am dreaming of them now.
