I found a recipe on the Libby's Pumpkin page here... Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies
My version is only slightly different. I didn't glaze the cookies at all, instead I sprinkled with Cinnamon Maple Sprinkles. I also didn't use the spices they did, again.. used the GFS Cinnamon Maple Sprinkles. I also used organic pumpkin & organic butter, along with sea salt. Warning.... these are VERY sweet! But they're so good!
Here it is.....
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (you can combine 1/2 and 1/2 wheat flour to white)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 teaspoons Cinnamon Maple Sprinkles (From GFS - Gordon Food Service)
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup organic butter (1 stick), softened
- 1 cup Organic Pumpkin
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine ingredients together. Their recipe suggested doing it by splitting the dry/wet ingredients & using a mixer... I simply dumped it all in one big ol' bowl and stirred with a big wooden spoon. I ended using my hands to pull it all together, so if that grosses you out you may want to use a mixer. It is a sticky dough. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto sprayed cookie sheet.
Remove from cookie sheet to cool and sprinkle with the Maple Cinnamon Sprinkles on top, just lightly.
Bake for 15 until edges are firm & browned.
Nutritional Information per cookie (from their cookie - adjust to your ingredients)While I wouldn't suggest making these daily, they're a nice treat for a good cold fall night to snuggle and watch Shrek's Halloween Spooktacular!!!! *(Which is exactly what I'm doing with 2 cookies & a glass of soy milk!)
