We're remodeling our master bathroom, and from our previous experience with the kitchen, let me give you two words of advice that will make any home project run more smoothly: Coffee and Cookies. I mean, a contractor just can't argue with you when he has his mouth full of these soft, cake-like cookies with caramel icing. They're just too good! You'll be amazed at just how prompt the tile craftsmen are when they know that fresh, hot coffee, is waiting for them.
Wouldn't you be?
These soft, cake-like delicious cookies remind me of the kind my grandma used to make.
A delicious autumn treat!
Pumpkin Cookies with Caramel Icing
Adapted from allrecipes.com
1 cup shortening ( I used Earth Balance)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups White Whole Wheat flour
- Cream shortening, sugar and pumpkin. Add eggs and mix well. Sift together the baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt and flour. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
- Drop from spoon to cookie sheet. I used an ice cream scoop for even cookies. These worked well as larger cookies because of their cake-like consistency.
- Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees.
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup confectioner's sugar
Cook butter, milk and brown sugar until dissolved. Cool and add confectioner's sugar and vanilla. Spread over warm cookies.
