Pumpkin season is not too far off and we will be thinking all “Fall” things. Love that time of the year and we are experiencing a taste of it right now with temps in the mid 60’s. Needless to say your cookies look special – like the ricotta addition. Happy FF and have a nice weekend.
I love the combination of pumpkin and salted caramel. These cookies are so perfect for an autumn brunch. Will keep it in mind for Thanksgiving. 🙂
