In my house we love these cookies, and it doesn't have to be Thanksgiving or Fall for me to make them.

I love making this big batch and freezing them, as they do freeze well.

Enjoy!!!!

1 tsp
vanilla
5 c
flour
2 tsp

FROSTING

2 - 8 oz

1/2 c
1 stick butter, softened
2 c
sifted, confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degree F.


Spray baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
2
Cream shortening and sugar; blending well. Add the two eggs. Mix in the pumpkin.

Now, mix in the vanilla and the 5 cups of flour.

Add the remaining spices, mix just until all is blended.
3
Using a cookie scoop or I use a tablespoon and slide batter off with my finger. Trying to get them all pretty much the same size, so they bake evenly.

Bake 10 - 12 minutes, cool 2 minutes, then place cookies on bakers rack to cool.

Frosting:

In medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with butter. Then mix in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla.

Chill until ready to frost. I frosted some with a thinner drizzle by adding some cream to the frosting.

Garnishing with cinnamon is optional.


Enjoy!
