I was feeling fall-ish and I had a part of a can of pumpkin in the refrigerator. I decided to look for a pumpkin recipe and came across this one in the Lawler Iowa church cookbook.
I love using local cookbooks and knowing the person who submitted the recipe. I know if Marla made these cookies they are likely good!!
Here’s the recipe…
I followed the recipe almost to a T. I opted for butter and I only baked mine for 17 minutes. They started to get brown around the edges if I baked them any longer.
The batter was thick and gooey…see??
I used the middle size of my set of scoops for plopping out the dough. Find them HERE.
Here they are all frosted and ready to eat. The batch made about 40 cookies for me.
Everyone who has tried these has loved them! Gannon and Carver and the childcare kiddos wouldn’t stop begging for a second cookie.
I went to Walmart a couple of days after I made these and picked up a container of fall-themed sprinkles. I’m going to make them again and then sprinkle the frosting with some cute sprinkles.
The kids are really going to be even more excited about them!! Sprinkles kind of dress up a cookie too.
If you’re going anywhere and need to bring a fall treat, these are just the cookies to make…they are excellent!
Let me know what you think of them…
