Pumpkin Pecan Spice Cookies

"I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new."  - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Pumpkin Coffee, Christmas Music, and cookies baking.  It's feeling so cheery in this kitchen.  I started my Thanksgiving baking a little bit early.  I have never tried this recipe before today, but these cookies are so stinkin' good I thought I'd pass the recipe along in case you want to whip up a quick batch along with the rest of your goodies. Pumpkin Pie lovers beware: these are highly addictive.  I did not add glaze to the top of my cookies, but you certainly could if you like.  

Pumpkin Pecan Spice Cookies
1 1/2
cups packed light brown sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened (I used Crisco Butter Flavored baking Sticks)
cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
teaspoons vanilla
2 3/4
cups Self Rising flour
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon salt
teaspoon ground ginger
teaspoon ground nutmeg
teaspoon ground allspice
teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/3
cups finely chopped pecans

  • 1In large bowl, beat brown sugar, butter, eggs, pumpkin and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed. Stir in flour and spices. Stir in pecans and baking chips. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
