This is pumpkin week! Plus we had a cute little red-headed guest Fehry today. Kai chose cookies so we found a high rated pumpkin cookie recipe.

We made a double batch (in case you were worried about the volume of butter being added).

Then some pumpkin.

The batter gets a thumbs-up.

Really light and yummy!

Pumpkin Cookies I
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
2. In a medium bowl, cream the shortening and sugar. Stir in the pumpkin and vanilla. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Then mix in the butterscotch chips. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool for a minute on cookie sheets before transferring to wire cooling racks.
