Light and Fluffy Pumpkin Dip

??????????????????

Is a pumpkin a vegetable or fruit?  That is the question.

I’ve just got one word to say about these ooey, gooey chocolate chip and toffee bars. Danger!

I love making cookies. They are pure comfort food to me.  There are just some days where the only thing that will make it better is a batch of homemade cookies.  Ever had one of those days??  Besides making and eating cookies, one of my favorite things to do is to put something into the cookies that you wouldn’t expect.  Remember those caramel corn cookies I shared a while back??
