Old fashioned soft pumpkin cookies...

Since my pantry if FULL of canned pumpkin this time of year, I've been busy baking away! This week I'm featuring some of my favorite pumpkin recipes. I came across this one a few months ago and just had to give a try. Needless to say, these cookies are the most amazing thing I've had yet this fall. In fact, I've made them four times already.
WARNING: They're so soft and'll eat quite a few in one sitting!


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Glaze (recipe follows)


PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease baking sheets.

COMBINE flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until well blended. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

BAKE for 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle Glaze over cookies.


COMBINE 2 cups sifted powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in small bowl until smooth. Drizzle across the tops of the cookies and serve! (Hint: I put the glaze in a ziploc bag and cut a small corner off at the bottom. This allows the glaze to flow slowly so I can drizzle more effectively).

Enjoy! Have a great Thanksgiving week everyone!!
