Pumpkin cookies

I read about it never heard about it and as I asked for the recipe...

I read several and it doesn't sound difficult or special to me. The spices have a lot in common with our "speculaas".


2 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda (not necessary)

1 teaspoon baking powder (you can bake cookies without)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin (use real pumpkin)

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided (vanilla sugar)

Howto: make a dough out of it and out of the dough cookies. You can make balls first and push them flat with your hand or a glass.

Oven 180-190°C
Baking time: 15-18 minutes

If you have a good cookie recipe yourself I would say add the spices and pumpkin. All cookies are basically the same.

Optional for topping (not my taste)

2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

3 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon butter, softened
