Nutella Pumpkin Cookies Recipe

We all know the best thing about Fall is the baking, right?!  I was going to make our Frosted Soft Pumpkin Cookies when I had the idea to forgo the frosting and add some Nutella.  It was possibly the best choice I’ve ever made in my life! 😉

    I made these to mail to my son who is away at college because he loves Nutella and pumpkin. I tasted one before I packaged them up and felt like it was a little bland and not sweet enough. I melted some white almond bark and added some healthy dashes of cinnamon and used that as icing. It sent them over the top and the almond bark hardened so I could pack them nicely. Can't wait until he gets them!
