How to Make Serene Sunday: Oh, The Sadness Of Parting, Pumpkin Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
    In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla; beat until light and creamy. Add dry ingredients; mix well. Drop by rounded TBS onto greased cookie sheets (I use Pampered Chef baking stones, un-greased). Smooth tops of cookies (I use the bottom of a glass lightly floured). Bake in preheated 350 degree F. oven for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
  2. These can be frosted with frosting of your choice. I don't have a recipe for the frosting, but I use a butter cream or cream cheese frosting. I do have the whoopie pie filling recipe though.

    4 oz. cream cheese, at room temp.
    6 TBS butter, at room temp.
    1/2 tsp.vanilla extract
    1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

    Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in small mixer bowl on medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until light and fluffy.

It’s the perfect base for a recipe because it takes on the flavor of other ingredients. A great option for a vegetarian dinner, eggplant can be used in many different ways. […]
