What a wonderful aroma that fills the house as these delicious cookies bake. The creamy caramel icing tops these gems off perfectly! My first batch vanished before I placed the second pan in the oven.

Make some for your family, they'll be happy you did.

Enjoy!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    In a large bowl, cream the sugar and shortening. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in pumpkin.

    In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt spices and baking powder.

    Beat the flour mixture into the pumpkin mixture until thoroughly mixed. Stir in nuts.
