I made pumpkin cookies today. They were an embodiment of the perfect cookie. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Yum. According to my sister, they tasted like Fall. :o) That's a pretty nice cookie to enjoy, I think! Just the right mix of pumpkin, cinnamon and sugar to bring Autumn to your tastebuds.
PUMPKIN SPICE COOKIES
1 1/2 cup margarine (or butter)
1 cup sugar (can use 1/2 brown sugar if desired)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Preheat oven to 350. Cream together margarine, sugar and vanilla. Mix in pumpkin puree. Add spices. Stir in flour until well combined. Drop onto cookie sheet and bake for about 20 minutes until browned around the edges. Let cool a little before removing from pan. Enjoy warm and chewy, or let cool completely and savour the crispy edges.
