Pumpkin Twists

Hi Friends! Today, I am sharing a recipe that I published 6 years ago on the blog. I recently made these for friends and decided to update the recipe this year. I hope you are enjoying the fall season.

I went for a walk after work yesterday and for the first time, the weather felt cool and crisp, like actual fall! I was so excited that the season finally is catching up to us. 

To celebrate, I made these really easy treats.
