But One year while I was making them I forgot to add the pumpkin. The resulting cookies turned out are very crunchy and delicious. I call then Accidental Spice cookies, My daughter calls them, I Can't believe They're Not Pumpkin Cookies, But my friends call them addicting.
This is my Spice cookie recipe.
Preheat oven to 350°.
In small mixing bowl combine:
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
(If you do not have pumpkin pie spice you can use, 1 teaspoon cinnamon,
½ teaspoon nutmeg,½ teaspoon ginger)
In large mixing bowl beat 1 cup softened butter for 1 minute. Add:
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ dark brown sugar (packed)
Beat until fluffy and then add:
2 teaspoons vanilla
Beat well, then add dry ingredients and mix until well blended.
Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350° 8 to 10 minutes.
Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to finish cooling.
I do Have a friend who is working on figuring out how to make this a weight watchers friendly cookie recipe. when she does I hope to be able to put it up here too.
