These fall favorite pumpkin cookies are made with freshly roasted butternut squash puree, perfect for the foreseen canned pumpkin shortage!
These cookies are famous (or should I say…infamous) in my family. Let me tell you a bit about them: basically October 1 every year we decide it’s time for pumpkin cookies. And we make them. And make them. And make them. Through all the cold winter months to keep us
warm fat (or something). We have been making them for years from an old church cookbook. It’s pretty easy to remember because it’s mostly “one of everything.” The batch is always a double batch. The icing gets eaten from the bowl sometimes. And they’re always gone very, very quickly.
I traded up in this recipe and made some cookies that were truly next level. The secrets? Use alllll the pumpkin pie spices, instead of just cinnamon. AND: fresh roasted butternut squash purée in place of canned pumpkin.
