Pumpkin Spice M&M Cookies

Today is National Homemade Cookie Day and to celebrate Fall (and all things pumpkin!), I've created a new cookie recipe for you: Pumpkin Spice M&M Cookies. I love finding new products when I go shopping and this time it was Pumpkin Spice M&M's. They also had a candy corn flavor, but I'm not a huge fan of candy corn. I try not to bake cookies often because they don't last long in this house. Seriously...just because I have girls doesn't mean they don't eat me out of house and home like those teenaged boys I hear about! These...gone in under 24 hours. I guess they liked them. :)
