2/3 cup (130 g) granulated sugar
2/3 cup (120 g) brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup (180 g) butter, softened
1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla

Musical Accompaniment:

Illustrated Guide:

That's a lot of yummyCrank up the heat to 375*F (190* C) and position your oven rack all center like.  Then grab your cauldron and eye of newt… I mean… your tools and ingredients!

I always just wanna eat it with a spoon.

This one starts out like every other cookie I’ve ever made: cream together your butter and sugars until smooth.

 

 

 

Now, this is where our special friend, pumpkin, gets into the mix – literally.  Add the eggs and pumpkin and mix until thoroughly incorporated.

Continuing in the grand tradition of the cookie, mix together the dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves.  Add this mixture slowly to the batter.

20141029_211415Add the dry to the wet about a fourth at a time, beating on low with your electric mixer. What you will end up with is a light and fluffy mixture.  It is not peanut butter. Do not make sammiches.

Drop by the heaping spoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until tapping their tops does not cause them to indent or deflate.

 

 

 

As soon as these golden brown piles of joy are baked through, pull them off the tray to cool completely.  They are delicious with or without frosting, so enjoy as you see fit!
