How to Make Pumpkin Molasses Cookies


  1. Cream together butter, pumpkin, sugars, egg and molasses until creamy. Add dry ingredients and blend well.
  2. Mix together 1/2 c sugar and pumpkin pie spice in small bowl.
    This dough will be really soft, roll into balls, or use cookie scoop, roll in sugar mixture, place onto cookie sheets, flatten slightly with bottom of a glass or palm of hand.
  3. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes . Mine were large, I used a 1/4 c size scoop and I baked for 15 minutes.
