Pumpkin Cookie Cake

My daughter is not a fan of cookie cake (or any cake for that matter), but she likes pumpkin cookies.  I combined the pumpkin cookie recipe with a standard cookie cake recipe and tweaked it to make it Sweeter Honey approved.   This recipe is the result.  I served it to a group of girls and 75% of the girls liked it and went back for seconds!
