Here is what you'll need:
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Crisco (or whatever off brand shortening you prefer. We get ours at Aldi :) )
1 Cup Canned Pumpkin (NOT pie filling)
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Salt
It calls for frosting, but I prefer my cookies unfrosted. However, here are the ingredients for the frosting if you please:
1 Pound Powdered Sugar (usually 1 bag)
1 8oz Package Regular Cream Cheese
1 Stick Salted Butter
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
Ok, you ready? Let's get started.
P.S. Preheat your oven to 375°
First, put on your favorite apron (I used Momma's :D)
Cream the Crisco, pumpkin, and sugar.
Add the egg and mix well
Now add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well
Now just use a fork to grab medium size lumps of dough and plop em' on an UNGREASED cookie sheet. (I had to use a small pan because all we have at the time is a little convection oven. Our big oven is broken :( )
Bake for 10-15min.
Place on a wire rack to cool
