Totally gonna make these cookies!

So I found what seems like a good recipe for Pumpkin cookies. I’m going to try it out tonight with the addition of some delicious cream-cheese frosting on top ๐Ÿ˜€ . Also I’m not going to add the pecans or walnuts just because I don’t think they need them. Maybe I’ll add some orange food coloring to the frosting to make them brighter too ๐Ÿ™‚ . I hope they aren’t too soft seeing as how there’s pumpkin puree in them. It’s not that much so I wouldn’t think they would be, but who knows. I’m excited that this batch makes 3.5 dozen but knowing my fiance’s cookie portions, it’ll probably make closer to 2 haha. The picture of them looks really good and it’s making me super hungry. I’m about to go get dinner and then go swimming so it will be awhile before I can make them. When I get back and finally make them I’ll probably post about them ๐Ÿ˜€ and let you know if they’re good or not. Here’s the recipe if you want to try and make them too ๐Ÿ˜€ .

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 ยฝ cup ap flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch nutmeg

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 c chocolate chips or raisins
ยฝ – 1 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
Whisk together flour, leavening, salt and spices.
In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugars. Beat in egg, then vanilla, then pumpkin. Add flour mixture and stir until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, if using.

    Mmm, they do sound yummy! Unfortunately I don’t have any of that stuff here, so it’ll have to wait ’til next week’s grocery run.

    HEY! Your sister totallly posted with my name! I think I was logged in on her computer and she didn’t bother to check. Anyway, those do sound yummy, good luck cooking with Billy, it tends to end in eyebrowlessness if I remember.

    lol the cookies were good besides the fact that he didn’t mix all the liquids together at once so some parts were really yummy and some were just ok. Cream cheese frosting on top makes them delicious though ๐Ÿ˜€ .
