Pumpkin Cookies, these are absolutely delicious!
This pumpkin cookie recipe has been generously shared by one of our great cooks, Carina. She's always coming up with great recipes, and here we have Carina's Pumpkin Cookies.
These are so delicious be sure you make up plenty!
Pumpkin recipes are always popular around the Fall time when you can buy fresh pumpkins, perhaps you pick your own from a field, as Carina did below.
You can, of course, buy ready-made pumpkin puree from the store, usually canned. Pumpkin puree is used for a multitude of recipes, from savory to sweet.
For example, we have other pumpkin recipes such as our pumpkin zucchini bread, Spiked Pumpkin Pie which is very popular around Thanksgiving time, our Easy Breezy Pumpkin Dump Cake, and for savory, we have a lovely Spiced Baked Cauliflower and Pumpkin with Teryaki Chicken recipe which great as an appetizer or party food.
Recipe Adapted from cooking book "Company's Coming"
For this recipe, Carina has made her own pumpkin puree, but of course, you can buy ready-made puree from the store if you don't have the time to make your own.
This pumpkin cookies recipe is adaptable too. Instead of raisins, you could use other dried fruit, such as cranberries, or swap for chocolate chips. Whatever you decide, they'll taste delicious!
