Do You Think Al Will Like This?

All recipes is where I borrowed this recipe from.iced pumpkin cookie recipe It is called Iced Pumpkin Cookies.

The recipe may not be readable to all, so here are the directions.


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1t. baking powder

1t. baking soda

2t. cinnamon

1/2t. nutmeg

1/2t. cloves

1/2t. salt

1/2 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 egg

1 t. vanilla

2 cups confectioner’s sugar

3T. milk

1 T. melted butter

1 t. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt, set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1t. vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in with dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.

Bake for 15-20 minutes in oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.

To make glaze: Combine confectioner’s sugar, milk, 1T melted butter, and 1 t. vanilla. Add the milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.

Now I adjusted my recipe. This is what I did.

I added whole wheat flour instead of white flour. I added 1 t. cinnamon, plus 1t. pumpkin spice, instead of the spices above. I used Splenda instead of regular sugar.

For the icing I made mine with 1/2 stick of melted butter, 1t. almond extract, instead of the vanilla. I didn’t glaze, I made the icing stiff enough to spread. I want to taste my icing!

  1. Yum! Let’s hope so! Oh Terry . are going to laugh at me. For some reason I thought the title of the post was “do you think Al will look like this”! haha! So, I was a little confused at the start, before I went back and read it correctly! God bless you, wonderful Sis!


    • he never even took one out of the bag when I handed them to him. He is like a hoarder. He takes snacks and saves them for night time when all the lights are low,and then chows. Come on over, I have plenty more!!!!!


      • lol, thats another interesting TV show that you just brought up, ‘hoarders’.hahaha. Thats lot of TV shows in one day worth of conversation 🙂


      • I don’t know about you Chris, but when I watch that Hoarder show, it makes me upset. I guess because I can not understand how people can live like that!!!! I am sort of a neat freak. Everything in its place. To have a path to walk through, to see things from ten years ago piled to the ceiling, is not for me!!!!!!!
