Pumpkin Cookies from the Book

KJuneBug's picture

I just made the Pumpkin Cookies from the new book.  I was pretty surprised at the "egglessness" (is that a word?) of the recipe, but they are really good!  I left out the choc. chips though, we decided we wanted plain this time.  I haven't made the frosting yet, but I might!!

On another note, I would like to know if Lovina knits and/or crochets?  

Re: Pumpkin Cookies from the Book

Could it be more of a glaze than a frosting?  I would assume (I have not seen the recipe) that it would be something like a glaze like some would put on oatmeal cookies.

Is the icing supposed to be real liquidy?  Mine turned out that way, I think I will add a little more powdered sugar.

Re: Pumpkin Cookies from the Book

Jessica is actually correct...Lovina (and many Amish cooks, for that matter) will sorta drizzle their cookies with a glaze rather than the thicker icing that most of us commonly think of...but if you do want a thicker more traditional icing you can add more powdered sugar, use store-bought, or follow a different recipe for icing....

I did add more powdered sugar, the original recipe didn't set up.  So I have a container of icing in the frig, my children think that is just great!  I'll ice them as they are eaten! Our middle daughter who's 9 says, "those are the most delicious cookies ever!"  That sums it up!!  Pumpkin is full of vitamins so I think that it is great that my children will eat it in the cookies!

PS: I bought 3 organic sugar pumpkins that I baked and pureed yesterday.  The yield was 7 cups of pumpkin puree.  I used some today and froze some for later use.  I had one cup left over, I added some cinnamon and sugar, it's in the frig we are going to have it on our toast in the morning.
