Another good cookie recipe from my holiday baking selection.

Happy Baking from my kitchen to yours,


M.J.



Using my handy mini scooper...I used parchment paper to line cookie sheet.



I believe this recipe comes from my mother- in- laws stack of homemade cookie recipes.. Moist, soft and so tender these cookies seem to please everyone although I don't care for pumpkin I did try one.  Being the baker you must try, correct? The children and grandchildren love them so I include them in baking favorites.

Here is her recipe:

Cream 1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg

Add 2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cups seedless raisins

Drop by tsp. onto cookie sheet..Bake 350 degrees  10 to 12 minutes until cookies are slightly browned..


Icing

3 tablespoons melted butter
4 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
Cook over medium heat until mixture starts to boil..Cool slightly..Add 1 cup sifted confectionery sugar..Drizzle over cookies...
