Pumpkin Cookies

Yum!  I found this recipe over at Habitually Chic, and I can't wait to try these for myself.  Don't they look like the perfect Halloween treat and/or Thanksgiving dessert?  Maybe I'll finally put my oven to good use, rather than just for extra storage...

1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup butter
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins

¼ cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 – 2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together sugar, pumpkin, butter and orange peel. Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  Drop by teaspoon onto un-greased baking sheet. Bake until light golden brown about 8-10 minutes. Immediately remove from baking sheet and cool. Spread with glaze. Enjoy!

  1. They look awesome! I made pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting last year using a recipe from the blog world and they were delicious. I definitely plan on making them again!

    I love pumpkin anything... especially lattes.
