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.
