I have felt a little overwhelmed with the cookie making this last week. I got behing, you see. In a house with many children... you just can't get behind.
Do you know what my sweet hubby did when he came home from work? He went straight into the kitchen and made a double batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I could have kissed his wonderful face... but there was chocolate on his lips...
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 C white sugar
1 C brown sugar
1 C butter, softened
1 C pumpkin
Sift together dry ingredients then add to wet ingredients.
2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice ( I leave out if I can't find it easilly)
1/4 tsp salt
1 C chocolate chips
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan. You can frost these if you like although I don't anymore.
In saucepan, heat 3 T butter and 1/2 C brown sugar over medium heat until bubbling and thick. Cool 10 min. Stir in 1/4 C milk. Add 2 C powdered sugar and beat till smooth.
