I was just reminded by my two boys that I need to get cracking and make them their favorite Christmas treats, Pumpkin Cookies. One of the great things about these cookies is the fact that they freeze so well. I always double this batch, pass some around, and freeze the rest for guests throughout the holiday season. They’re a hit everywhere, so why not give them a try? Here’s the recipe:


½ cup butter,       1 ½ cups sugar,     1 egg
1 cup pumpkin, 1 tsp vanilla ,  2 ½ cups flour

1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda,  ½ tsp. Salt

1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp. Cinnamon ,  ½ cup diced roasted almonds (optional…I don’t add nuts)

1 cup c.chips (I’ve been known to dump the entire bag, not just a cup, and the kids LOVE them)

Directions: Cream butter & sugar till light and fluffy, beat in egg, pumpkin and vanilla. Mix
& sift flour, spices, etc., and beat into mixture. Fold in almonds and chocolate chips.  Drop by spoonful

on well-greased cookie sheet. 350 for 15 mins, or lightly browned. YUM!
