Pumpkin Cookies

Here’s the recipe for those of you who came over from The Loopy Ewe site…Don’t thank me, it’s all Betty, circa 1963, from a VERY OLD cookbook…

1 1/2 c packed brown sugar

1/2 c shortening

2 eggs

1 can pumpkin, not pumpkin pie, just the pumpkin

2 3/4 c flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ginger

optional…1 c raisins, 1 c chopped pecans or walnuts

Mix wet ing. Add dry.  Last add raisins and nuts.  Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased sheet.  Bake at 400 for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned.

If any of you are on WW, the entire recipe calculates out to 66 points.  So, figure out how many cookies yours makes, and divide out.  I use one of those things from Pampered Chef that looks like a mini ice cream scooper, and I usually get about 45 cookies total.  Enjoy!!!
