Pumpkin Cookies

It is starting to look feel like fall around here.  Still waiting for the beautiful fall colors.  Soon, I am sure of it.

Fall in Washington is BEAUTIFUL.

While we wait for the fall colors we thought we would make some of our favorite cookies.

Pumpkin Cookies

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 egg
1 cup pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and sugar then combine egg, pumpkin and vanilla

Sift together dry ingredients
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon

mix wet and dry ingredients

add 1 cup chocolate chips OR 1 cup raisins

drop spoonfuls onto cookie sheet
bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes

store them in an airtight container and they are even yummier the next day . . . kinda cake like.
