Gluten-Free Egg-Free Pumpkin Cookies

I am going to do a series of recipes leading up to Thanksgiving that will involve gluten free, egg free and dairy free ingredients.  Most of the time, I try to do all three.  But sometimes, it will be one or two of them.  In any case, Thanksgiving is a great time to branch out and try new things, and these are the weeks to get practicing!  Good luck and have fun.

These cookies are perfect to bring over to someone's home if you'll be away this Thanksgiving.  You can even stow them in your luggage if you have to make a flight.  Yummy.
