Pumpkin Cookies

So instead of cleaning my bathroom like I should be doing, I procrastinated and made cookies. These are THE BEST cookies I have had in a while. They are amazing, seriously you have to try them. They are so moist and oh so yummy! I didnt have my camera here, my husband had to take it to work so there is no photo. I saw this recipe on another cooking blog and had to try them . . .. .

Pumpkin Cookies

Recipe from:

1 cup Crisco
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream shortening and sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients.

Bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Spread caramel frosting on top.

Caramel Frosting

Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla. Cool to lukewarm, then gradually beat in the powdered sugar until frosting reaches spreading consistency.
