Pumpkin Latte Cookies

Apparently, it’s a big deal when Starbucks comes out with their Pumpkin Latte in the fall.  Personally, I’m more excited about the Salted Caramel Mocha or the Eggnog that comes later, but I usually have one or two of the pumpkin before the season is over.  They’re good, just not something I wait eagerly for…
