Pumpkin Cookies

With all the pumpkin carving you’ll be doing this Halloween, you might just wonder what to do with the leftover pumpkin flesh. Well, here’s an idea:


1/2 cup shortening/butter
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
cinnamon stick

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a second bowl, cream the shortening and work in the brown sugar and eggs. Mix well.

Stir in the pureed pumpkin. Add the nuts and raisins.

Gradually stir in the dry ingredients, mixing well.

Drop spoonfuls of the batter on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375F degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
