Pumpkin Cookies

This is a not-so-healthy recipe but they taste pretty good so I thought I’d share.  I wouldn’t mind a glass of milk to dip one in.  Or a cup of coffee!  Oh boy, breakfast tomorrow!  Here’s the recipe if you care to give it a try…

Sorry about the lame picture.  My camera battery died and the charger is somewhere in a box in LB.  This was taken with my cell phone.

Other things in boxes at LB…my cookie sheet – so I had to use tin foil, and my mixer – so I had to cream the butter and sugar by hand, booooo.  I also used a whole can of canned pumpkin when I was supposed to use half.  Life is funny and I am not a good baker.  At least I have cookies!

Goodnight all!

    Because I used more pumpkin then directed, they came out something like a muffin/scone hybrid. Not bad, very moist. Next I might use a little more vanilla or maybe some rum. Enjoy!
