1/2 Cup softened butter 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
3/4 Cup Sugar 3/4 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Egg 1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Cup of pumpkin puree 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Cups flour 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon ginger
Mix all the ingredients together (I start with the dry ingredients and then add in the wet ones.) The dough will be sticky so grab a spoon in order to form your cookies. In a small bowl, pour some sugar then drop in “balls” of dough off your spoon. Once the sugar coats the glob of dough it becomes easy to handle and shape. Place the sugar covered balls on a greased pan and squish (flatten) them a little with the palm of your hand. Back at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
So how good are these cookies? Well if the rate of consumption by my country kids is any indicator, they are awesome. And get this, my neighbor who doesn’t like pumpkin… yeah I gave her one but didn’t tell her what it was…. she liked it!!!! Guess who might just like pumpkin after all!?!?!
So why are you still sitting in front of your computer!?!?!? Get in the kitchen and start baking… I promise, your taste buds will thank you!!
