Pumpkin Cookie Recipe You’ll “Fall” In Love Withposted on 7/5/13
Halloween and pumpkins go hand in hand. The Irish have been carving Jack-o’-lanterns from turnips, beets, or mangelwurzel for hundreds of years. The tradition came to America but, of course, we pretty much exclusively carve pumpkins. The pumpkin is good for more than just a carving, though! For generations, my family has been carving pumpkins, cooking the seeds, and turning the guts into delicious cookies.
I can’t think of anything better than whipping up a delicious pumpkin cookie recipe while watching a tea light glow in a well-carved pumpkin. To save you time, I’m sharing an easy pumpkin cookie recipe for you to make. My family has been making a variation of this pumpkin cookie recipe for years. Are you ready for the pumpkin cookie recipe? It’s going to blow your taste buds away.
To make the pumpkin cookie recipe from Very Best Baking , you’ll need a few supplies. Start by collecting 2.5 cups of all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ½ teaspoon salt 1.5 cups sugar, 1 cup pumpkin, 1 stick butter, 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla. Do you have all your supplies? Are they all measured out and waiting in picturesque cups? Lovely. Let’s begin.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a few baking sheets. Mix baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, flour, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat the sugar and butter until well mixed. Gradually beat in the pumpkin, vanilla, and the egg until everything is smooth. Next, you’ll beat in the flour mixture. Using a spoon, drop some batter onto the baking sheets.
The cookies only need to cook for about 15 minutes, depending on your oven. When the cookies are ready, take ‘em out of the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes. You’ll want to transfer them from the baking sheet to wire racks so they can totally cool.
These pumpkin cookies are great by themselves without a doubt. But if you have a little extra time, whip up a batch of glaze to top them off with! Glaze is easy to make and absolutely delicious. All you need to do is mix 2 cups of powdered sugar with 3 tablespoons milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon melted butter until it is smooth. You won’t be disappointed by this pumpkin cookie recipe.
