A Tasty Treat

Forget tricks, I'm all about treats! What could be better then a tasty treat for Halloween? An old co-worker of mine introduced to me to these scrumptious goodies awhile ago. Since I'm a fan of pumpkin and cookies, the combination is just about perfect. Give them a try them and I am sure you will agree!

Pumpkin Cookies
by: Noelle H.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup solid packed pumpkin (I just used the whole can)
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda

Cream butter, sugar and pumpkin and then add the egg. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Place rounded teaspoon size cookies on ungreased cookie sheet or your silpat if you have one.

Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen depending on how big you make them.

Brown Sugar Icing

3 tbls butter
4 tsp milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup confectioner sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla

Cook butter, milk and brown sugar until dissolved. Cool a few minutes and add vanilla and confectioner sugar. Keep over low heat while stirring to be able to drizzle icing. Icing will thicken quickly once it starts to cool. It may take more than one batch of icing to frost one batch of cookies. I tend to be more "eat the frosting, who needs the cookie?" kind of girl, so doubling is a must :)

Happy eating!

  1. I feel real bad for your neighbors being subjected to such a heavenly aroma - don't be surprised if they show up at your door trick or treating for freshly baked cookies!
