Fall Cookies Sorted By Your Favorite Fall Ingredients

My sister-in-law suggested that we make different fall cookies every month (at least) this season and ever since then different recipes have been on my mind. Sometimes you just have to plan these things so you can actually try the treats you want, you know? After looking at different recipes for fall cookies I’ve found it hard to decide which one to start with! There are so many good ones, and I thought I’d share what I’ve found.
