Pumpkin Cookies

27 Nov

Trace: mentioned in her blog today that she needed to come up with 5 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange…and that got me to thinking. I love, LOVE to cook – particularly baking – and it always excites me when someone throws out a fav recipie on thier blog. I’ve been debating for awhile about doing the same thing, and I’ve finally decided to post this one. Without further ado:

* I love this recipe because the cookies are so easy to make the the dough freezes REALLY well (I usually double the recipie and make half for Thanksgiving and then freeze the rest for Christmas). They are cookies but come out with more of a “muffin” texture. Enjoy!

1 Cup Butter
1 Cup Pumpkin (plain, NOT pie filling)
2 TSP Cinnamon
2 Cups Flour
1 TSP Baking Powder
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
1 TSP Vanilla
1 TSP Baking Soda

Mix butter & sugar. Add egg, pumpkin & vanilla. Sift dry ingredients (I usually just whisk them) and add to mixture slowly. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

3 TBS Butter (softened)
1 Cup Sugar
2 TBS Milk
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 TSP Vanilla

Mix well & frost. (this frosting is OK – but using a cream cheese frosting is even better)

That’s about it folks! If you try it out be sure to lemme know what you think!
Happy Holidays! ❤
