Tis the season for pumpkin! I had some leftover pumpkin and decided to see what I could do with it in cookie form. I came up with the following variation of a shortbread cookie.
Prep time: 30 mins or less
Bake time: 8-10 mins
Makes about 3o lil cookie balls.
Preheat oven to 350.
I ground up some walnut, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 stick of butter
- 1/2 cup & 3 tbs canned pumpkin
- Mix in some cinnamon and nutmeg for good measure. These are what will make them taste more like pumpkin pie ;)
Mix up the ingredients, flour up your hands, and roll up the dough into bite size balls. Stick them in the oven for 8-10mins. If they come out to soft leave them in a couple more mins but keep in mind they'll harden as they cool and you want them a little soft and warm out of the oven so that the above nut 'n sugar topping sticks!
