Been making this recipe for years! It really helps you turn the corner and say “Welcome, Fall!”

 

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup softened butter

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Preheat oven to 350.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy.

Mix in dry ingredients.

Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls and flatten slightly. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then frost. (we use cream cheese frosting)
