Pumpkin Cookies

Fall is here! And that means it's pumpkin season! Yea! Can you tell we like pumpkin here? So in honor of this wonderful time, let's bake pumpkin cookies! These are my favorite. I made oodles of them yesterday for a baby shower we're attending today. They're really good, especially if you ice them with buttercream icing with a 1/2 tsp of maple extract...

Pumpkin Cookies
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla

Cream together sugar and shortening. Add egg, mix well. Add flour, baking soda and spices; add pumpkin and then vanilla. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet a 375 for 10 minutes. Ice when cool.

Happy baking!
