One-Bowl Pumpkin Cookies

Posted: Oct 19 2010


These little delicacies are a family favorite. One day, my friend, Pat, brought some over to my house. They disappeared in minutes! A few weeks later, I made more. They disappeared in seconds! It was obvious this was a recipe for keeps. I can't think of anything more perfect than a crisp Autumn day, an old sweater and blue jeans, a warm cup of coffee, and a couple of pumpkin cookies. Try it out today. And take my advice, it already makes four dozen, but you may want to double the recipe and freeze a few batches to hide away for later. You can pop a frozen one in the microwave for a few seconds and it warms up beautifully.


3/4 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 can pumpkin (15 oz)
2 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
1.5 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

First, you'll want to get a pretty large bowl and cream together butter and sugar.

Add eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla and mix it all together.

Now, here's the trick to one-bowl cookies. Pile up all the dry ingredients on top of the wet ingredients and sift all the dry ingredients together with a fork.

After sifting them together, mix everything in the bowl together until thoroughly combined.

Drop by spoonful onto a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes or until cooked through.

This recipe yield four dozen delicious cookies. But don't let that number fool you. They'll be snatched up in no time flat!

Talk About It!
