Pumpkin Cookies

What to do on a rainy, cold fall day?? Especially after you spend 3 hours out in the rain cheering for your youngest’s soccer tournament??


Tonight I tried a new recipe for Pumpkin Cookies. I would say it is a keeper!! I got it from http://www.verybestbaking.com. It was very simple and I had everything in my cabinet except pumpkin. I love recipes like that!!

Column 1
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

Column 2
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 stick of butter, melted

Column 3
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Set oven to 350 degrees. Mix column 1 together in a bowl. Then beat column 2 together in a separate bowl. Add column 3 into the bowl for column 2. Then dup in column 1. Drop cookies by rounded tablespoons on to cookie sheet. Bake for 15 mins.

After they are semicooled down, glaze them with powdered sugar glaze.

(Glaze- I used 2 cups of powdered sugar, 3 tbsp of milk, 1 tbsp of melted butter, and 1 tsp vanilla.)
