Man I’ve been so excited for today to get here. Why? One word, cookies. I LOVE cookies. Today I’ve teamed up with 7 other bloggers to have a cookie hop. Just think of it as an online cookie exchange that is going to save you hundreds of calories. Unless you bake all of these recipes that is, and might be tempted to do just that.
For my recipe I chose…
Oh my word. I’m totally out of control, right?!
Who would have ever imagined #BasicBeth sharing a pumpkin recipe. (Thank you Stephanie for giving me that nickname.) If I keep it up I might become know as “the lady who shares all of the pumpkin stuff” It’s okay though, I don’t mind one bit.
I should also point out that I cheated. I may or may not have posted a very similar recipe over two years ago. I have really been wanting to update the photos because oh my goodness, the photos around here have changed a lot in two years. I also switched up the recipe a bit too. Totally merits a whole new post, right?
- 3/4 Cup Unsalted butter
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Brown sugar
- 5 T Canned pumpkin
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 2 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
- 2 1/4 Cup Flour
- 2 1/2 C Powder sugar
- 2 T Softened unsalted butter.
- 2 tsp Maple extract
- 3-4 Tbsp Milk
- 1) Cream butter and sugars together.
- 2) Mix in pumpkin and vanilla until well blended. Add pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder and flour. Mix until dough comes together and forms a ball.
- 3) Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
- 4) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 5) On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to 1/4" thickness a hair over is okay too. Use cookie cutters to cut and place on a lined or lightly greased sheet.
- 6) Bake for about 10-12 minutes until the bottoms are light browned. Transfer to a wire baking rack to cool
- 7) Mix powder sugar and butter together until the butter is evenly mixed in. Add the extract and slowly add the milk until the icing is your desired consistency. I like to whip it for several minutes to make it really fluffy.
- 8) Ice the cookies. The frosting will set up quickly so if you wish to add sprinkles don’t waste any time!
So good, so simple. I only wished I had found my pumpkin shaped cookie cutter 15 minutes earlier. How cute would that be?! Oh well. I guess I should make them again :P.
