Yummy Pumpkin Cookies

It’s turning cold in New York and all I want to do is bake something.  My family’s favorite pumpkin cookie recipe might be the perfect option to warm up.  The only problem is that these spicy little iced cake-like cookies are so good you can’t eat just one.  Anyone want to come over for cookies?
Pumpkin Cookies

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!

    Someone e-mailed me yesterday, asking for a pumpkin cookie recipe. I didn’t even have to open a cookbook.

    Ummm, yes please! These look very yummy. And while you suggest that you can’t eat just one, I love desserts that are pre-portioned.
    PLUS I am all about unique ideas for pumpkin. (I acutally spoke about that: http://northonharper.com/2010/10/pumpkin-more-than-just-a-pie/) And these seem to fit the bill nicely! Thanks for the recipe!!!

    here’s the deal- in england, they don’t sell canned pumpkin, so recipes like this break my heart. however, i can easily be consoled if you’ll wrap up a dozen or so of these delicious snacks, and overnight them to oxford! 🙂
