PUMPKIN COOKIES… tis the season!

Angela surprised us at Bachelorette last night with these cookies. I’ll be honest. While I love pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, I am not necessarily crazy about a lot of other pumpkin products…..that is, until I took a bite of one of these! They are dee-lish! And they are a little “cakier” and softer than I expected, but SO good. Take a chance! What have you got to lose?


1 cup pumpkin pie mix

1 cup sugar

1 cup shortening**

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

Bake at 350 degrees about 10 minutes.


3 Tbs. butter

4 Tbs. whole milk

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 cups powdered sugar

cream butter and sugar. Add milk and powdered sugar, mix and drizzle over cookies.

**whenever I see “shortening” in a recipe, I assume the recipe is an oldie. So probably Crisco was used, or margarine, or a combination. I would probably use butter or a combination of butter and buttery Crisco. I honestly haven’t used margarine in years! Angela said she just used plain old Crisco.
