Pumpkin season



I heart all things pumpkin and recently baked up a batch of pumpkin cookies. Yum yum!
Here's the recipe:

Pumpkin cookies
Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup crisco
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup pumpkin

Mix sugar, crisco, egg and pumpkin until creamy. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Fold dry ingredients into wet. Whip until smooth. Drop onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Icing:
3 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar (I recommend more.)

Boil butter, milk and brown sugar for two minutes. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla. When cool, add powdered sugar.

Enjoy! What's your favorite pumpkin treat?

I have never thought of doing pumpkin cookies but they look and sounds so decadent that I need to try this recipe. My husband and son love pumpkin and maybe I will surprise them with a treat! XOXO
