Pumpkin Cookies

Something nice, really tasty and oh, okay, let's say it - quite healthy ;) in their taste they are very similar to carrot muffins I've baked a couple of times (before the blog was born, but no worries I'm sure that wasn't the last time I baked carrot muffins) and that's probably because of the nutmeg. 
What's more interesting when my little toddler naphew came and asked for a cookie I gave him one of these.. Surprisingly he devoured it and came back asking for more! 
Is there any more encouragement needed? Or any more proof that this is tasty? I hope not! :)
Recipe comes from KwestiaSmaku.
