Pumpkin Mukies- Not a cookie and Not a Muffin

So this weekend I tried whipping together some pumpkin treats to get in the Fall spirit. Here is what you need:

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 can pumpkin puree
3 tsp cinnamon spice (or pumpkin)
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 cups unbleached flour

Cream together the butter and sugar. I stuck the butter in the bowl, put it in the microwave to melt it a little then did this. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Beat in Pumpkin puree. Add spice, baking soda and salt, stir just until mixed. Then add flour 1/2 cup at a time until all is incorporated. Chill for 1 hour.
Use a spoon and spoon onto greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes each. Take out and let cool, then enjoy.
I started with another recipe and modified it. When completed, my husband ate 8 of these, but said "I don't know what to call these, it is like a mix between a cookie and a muffin." So that is how we named it- Pumpkin Mukies.
