In the Mood for Baking!!

This cooler weather really puts me in the mood to be in the kitchen baking!! The following recipe is one that I found on a blog last year and just couldn't get enough of...thought I would share:

Amazing Pumpkin Cookies
2 c. sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix in bowl and set aside. In a large bowl cream together:
1 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1 c. canned pumpkin

Add 1 egg, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Add flour mixture.

Drop on a greased sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

Heat to boiling and boil 2 minutes -
3 Tbs. butter
4 Tbs. whipping cream
1/2 c. brown sugar

Stir constantly.

Cool a little and add 1/2 cup powder sugar and 3/4 tsp. vanilla. Dollop on cookies.

*Tip: You may want to double the "glaze" recipe...due to the fact you will eat several spoonfuls before it even makes it to the cookies! :)

Headed to the kitchen to bake me a batch up now!!! Mmmmm!!!!!
