Description

With pumpkin, cinnamon and toasted pecans there is nothing better to celebrate a crisp autumn day. I’m in love with the buttery frosting.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Chopped Pecans, Toasted
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons Allspice
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Canned Pumpkin
  • _____
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • ⅓ cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Chop pecans. In a saute pan, toast pecans until fragrant. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and allspice. Set aside. In a large bowl (or mixer) cream together the sugar and butter. Add the egg. Stir in the pumpkin. Add flour mixture and mix until incorporated. (Do not over mix.) Stir in pecans by hand.

Drop with a teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 – 12 minutes.

While cookies are in the oven, prepare the frosting. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add brown sugar and stir. Remove from heat and whisk in the powdered sugar. Add a teaspoon of water or more until you reach desired consistency. Frost the cookies.

Hey marte2112

The only ingredient listed on my can of Libby’s pumpkin is pumpkin. I’m thinking you can mash up your own and that will do just fine!

These were really good cookies, they taste like little pumpkin cakes. They are very “cakey”. The frosting is good too.

I made these last Fall and everyone went nuts! They’re SO good, the frosting really makes them exceptional.

Sorry, but I was unimpressed by these. The dough was very cake-like which is unappealing to me.
