Pumpkin Cookies

October 11, 2009

I don’t bake very often, but these are a favorite of my sister Katie, who was born on Halloween so I like to her indulge her with these. They are a fall favorite in our house. You can add in walnuts or dark chocolate chips for something extra, if you want.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.

3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

If you want to add even a little bit more decadence, you can make a glaze from powdered sugar and water and drizzle a little bit on top. A splash of vanilla extract or cinnamon in the glaze works too.

Stats: I make them pretty small, and made 4 dozen cookies from it. Without any of the extra add-ins, each cookie is 70 calories. You can use this website if you use any add-ins or you make more or less than me, to recalculate.

The perfect treat to go along with my Pumpkin Latte!
