Baker's Review Wednesday: Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar.  Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla to butter mixture and beat until creamy.  Mix in dry ingredients.  Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.  Once cookies are off pan, drizzle glaze on with fork.
To make glaze: Combine powdered sugar, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.  Add milk as needed to achieve drizzling consistency.


The first time I made these delicious cookies was earlier this year in school.  I absolutely LOVED them, so I had to come home and make some, too!  They're soft, delicious yummy-ness!!  Super addicting!  Make them.  They're easy and delicious.  Two things I like when baking!!

Have a wonderful day, everyone!  I should be back soon with some projects I've been working on (Okay . . . well, the one I'm thinking about I started today, but I think I'll finish it tomorrow . . . so I should be back with it soon!!)
