13. Sweet & Salty Kitchen Sink Cookies
I think my version might be even better. They’re sturdy but chewy and full of so many fantastic textures-crunchy pretzels, gooey caramel, melty chocolate. They’re so so good. Addictive to the max. They also freeze really well if you-like me-can’t be trusted with an entire batch. I froze some and then just pulled out when I needed a special treat ;).

I love Gingersnap cookies. I have two favorite recipes that I make around Christmas time-Gingersnaps with White Chocolate Chunks and traditional Soft Gingersnaps. I decided it was time to create a Fall Gingersnap cookie, so I made Pumpkin Gingersnaps. I made these cookies before our little baby was born and really wish I had a few to munch on now. The pumpkin goes perfectly with this molasses spiced cookie. These Pumpkin Gingersnaps are a great Fall treat.

24. Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal Cookies
These are in my oven right now and smell delish! I added and extra tablespoon of applesauce (it felt like the right thing to do, the dough was super fally-aparty) and made them about twice the size suggested.. Can’t wait to eat!

28. Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pumpkin is generally what is going to make the cookies more cake-like so you’ll want to use the exact measurements of pumpkin as written in this recipe. The pumpkin you use is also super important. If you use a more water-y pumpkin or a homemade pumpkin puree you will likely not get these crisper cookies. I use and recommend Libby’s pumpkin.
29. Soft Maple Sugar Cookies
Soft maple sugar cookies. Just saying the name of this delicate and delicious little cookie makes my mouth water. They’re perfect for the holidays or any time you’re craving a sweet sugar cookie that literally melts in your mouth.
