Soft Pumpkin Cookies

My daughter came by today
to help me make some 
cookie bars for
 a youth organizations fundraiser

Soft Pumpkin Cookie Bars
recipe adapted from Libby Pumpkin Website

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
1 cup Pumpkin
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Glaze (recipe follows)

PREHEAT oven to 350° F. 
Grease baking sheets.

COMBINE flour, baking soda, 
baking powder, cinnamon, 
nutmeg and salt in medium bowl.
 Beat sugar and butter in
 large mixer bowl until well blended. 

Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla
 extract until smooth. Gradually beat
 in flour mixture.

We were making them 
for a fundraiser
 so we wanted bars
  so she
poured the batter on to a 
cookie sheet
and spread it out

They were baked for 20 min
at 350

Drizzled the top
with powder sugar 
and water glaze

To make cookies:
Drop by rounded 
tablespoon onto prepared 
baking sheets.
BAKE for 15 to 18 minutes 
or until edges are firm. 
Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes;
 remove to wire racks
 to cool completely. 
Drizzle Glaze over cookies.

Drop cookies

  1. Yum...these look good and I love soft cookies. The bars look great and I'd make those for my boys cause they eat so many cookies...I might as well just give them a big bar...or maybe a loaf pan ;) Thanks for sharing, Roberta

  2. Woweee does that look goooood!!!! Thanks for the recipe - perfect for Fall.

  3. Yummee....I love soft cookies like that.

  4. You just made my mouth water! I love a soft pumpkin cookie. I haven't baked since the holidays- with Mr. S not eating sweets like he used to, I don't make anything anymore. If i did, I would eat the entire batch! Self-control is not my strong suit- LOL His dr. says he can add some more sugar (or substitute) so maybe I can adapt a few recipes using the little yellow packet...

  5. Pumpkin is my all time favorite, I can't wait to try this. Thank you so much!!

    Stopping by from One Crazy Cookie, I'm a new follower :)

  6. yum! I have to try this recipe!

  7. Yum! I'll take one now with a cup of hot tea!

  8. What a great way to use pumpkin--and a fun, different cookie too!
