Recipe submitted by Nancy Haire, Owen Electric Cooperative, December 2008

Stir together flour, baking soda, Salt, baking powder, and cinnamon. Cream sugar, margarine or butter, add egg, pumpkin and vanilla, mix well. Add dry ingredients to cream mixture and combine. Drop by teaspoon onto greased sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes at 350. Cool. Makes 4 dozen.

For frosting, boil margarine or butter, milk, and brown sugar for 2 minutes. Let cool and add sifted powder sugar and vanilla. Will be thin but will thicken as it cools on cookies.

“A friend gave me this recipe years ago and it quickly became a family favorite, full of nostalgic memories of fall and winter holidays, yet perfect for any time of year. These delicious treats fill the house with warm spicy smells, stay nice and soft, and even freeze well for busy holiday times.”
