Pumpkin Cookies

pumpkin cookies

From October 30, 2005:  These are easy cookies to make.  I really liked them (my husband and son, not so much).  They are soft and lighter than most cookies.  They go perfectly with hot coffee or chai tea.  I left out the raisins this time (I don’t like raisins).  Next time I might add chocolate or white chocolate chips.  Nuts would be good too.  These cookies freeze well.  This recipe is vegan too.

Pumpkin Cookies

½ cup shortening
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 cup raisins
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Cream shortening and sugar and add pumpkin and raisins. Sift dry ingredients and add to above mixture. Drop by spoon on greased cookie sheet. Bake in 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. May frost if desired.
