Glittery Pumpkin Cookies

Everywhere I look I see glittery pumpkins. I have seen several how to make glittery pumpkin tutorials and it made me want to run out and buy a lot of glitter and give my pumpkins some shimmer. Then, I opened my box of sprinkles and saw the orange disco dust sparkling before my eyes. I knew I had to make glittery pumpkin cookies.
