Fall break was a month ago, during the kids week at home we literally cooked our way through the vacation. We made Pumpkin Pie Smoothies one day and Slow Cooker Applesauce another. We also made these great Pumpkin Cake Cookies!
We call them Pumpkin Cake Cookies because the texture was more that of a cake than a cookie, they are soft and delicious. I actually need to make these again because I think they are a great lunchbox snack to send to school with the kids. I am so happy to be here sharing this recipe with you today - Enjoy!!
recipe adapted from Very Best Baking
What you need:
cups AP flour
teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon baking powder
cups granulated sugar
cup butter (1 stick), softened
teaspoon vanilla extract
What you do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Meanwhile, grease 2 baking sheets.
Combine flour, baking powder and soda, spices and salt in a medium bowl. Beat the sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl until they are well blended. Now add the pumpkin , egg and vanilla to this mixture and mix until smooth.
Gradually add in your flour mixture.
Now it's time to make some cookies! Drop by tablespoonful onto your cookie sheets.
Bake these guys for 15-18 minutes or until the edges are firm. Be sure to let them cool before eating them (just a few minutes.)
Look at the inside - soft and cakelike.
