Good Morning Pumpkin!

Waking up at 3:00 am and quietly sneaking downstairs to snatch up one of these delicious pumpkin breakfast treats was just what I needed to get me through til morning. I am not usually a middle of the night snacker, but last night the flavors of pumpkin and cinnamon and cream cheese were calling my name!

I love the absolutely delicious combination of pumpkin and cream cheese, so, I selfishly added a cream cheese center to these treats. These pumpkin cookie treats are slightly sweet, soft and chewy.
