Pumpkin Cookies

When I opened up my blog today, ready for a new week and a new post, I realized I forgot to post on Friday!  I was so excited about my birthday (which was Saturday), that I forgot to do several of my normal Friday activities!  Sorry everyone!

The weather here continues to be perfect fall weather.  On Saturday we did some geocaching.  (Have you ever done that?  It’s so much fun!). The weather was just right for a sweater but no jacket.  So, I thought that a perfect fall recipe was in order today!  For these pumpkin cookies you will need:

  • Pumpkin puree
  • Flour
  • Milk
  • Sugar

Get the full recipe on my pin on my Just Desserts board.  This recipe is from Thirty-One, the home-party bag and organizer company.  Clicking on the pin takes you to their website (but sadly not the recipe).

These cookies were super fluffy.  I was shocked at how soft they were.  I added a touch too much baking soda, and you could really tell, so don’t make that mistake!  I wish I had been able to make the frosting, but I didn’t have the ingredients on hand.  The cookies are fine without the icing, but I can tell that the frosting would really add to the overall flavor.

Cooking these cookies was a snap.  Everything came together easily and quickly.  My only problem was storing the cookies.  Even though I only made a half batch, there were still a lot of cookies.   My cookies stuck together in my normal cookie box.  I think some wax paper in between layers would have really helped.  That said, the cookies didn’t last long, and I wasn’t disappointed when I pulled out two cookies instead of one.  There cookies are a perfect fall recipe, and they go great with some hot tea or cider.  (My favorite?  Eating them with a hot chai tea latte!)
