best pumpkin cookies ever!

October 6, 2009 at 7:34 pm 10 comments

My friend Stephanie sent me a recipe for some fabulous pumpkin cookies. I am not a good baker (I’ve mentioned that before), but every now and then I luck out. Like a good girl, I followed the recipe carefully this time (I prefer to wing it, which is probably why my baking doesn’t usually come out so great). It was easy and they came out really good  —  a nice, soft consistency with good cinnamony pumpkiny flavor.

Here they are, swimming in their icing (I added extra cinnamon to the glaze….you can never have too much cinnamon, right?):


In an effort to keep myself from eating them all, I packaged some up in little cellophane bags, tied them with a ribbon, and added a cute sticker I made for each of the kids’ teachers. I’m sending them to school tomorrow as a random treat. I know in my teaching days, I wouldn’t have minded a little mid-week surprise, especially if it involved baked goods.


Luke said, “Mom, I think it’s nice we’re bringing these for my teachers. They’ve been working really hard.”

Here’s the link to the recipe: Iced Pumpkin Cookies

I’m adding this to Kimba’s DIY Day and Works for Me Wednesday!
