Sweet Pumpkin Cookies

lots of pumpkins And so the pumpkin versus turnip argument rages on (on Halloweenerrific at least).
One thing’s for sure though, one thing working in pumpkin’s favour is the vast number of recipes that you can find online.

I found a great book that has a nice recipe for pumpkin cookies. I thought I’d share it with you as I’m going to be making them myself this year.

Sweet Pumpkin Cookies Recipe


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of cooked, strained pumpkin (or tinned if you prefer)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 cup of Stork (or shortening)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking cinnamon
