I've been sewing my brains out trying to get ready for Simple Goods. I don't know how much I'll have but it will have to be enough.
|soon to be Christmas mice|
Now baking is a different story. I need to bake. It keeps makes me and my sweet tooth happy to bake.
The following recipe is adapted from Betty Crocker I think? I added the cinnamon cream cheese frosting. It needed frosting.
The recipe is simple. It took me about 35 minutes for the first batch to be finished with frosting. I love that.
Hugs and kisses!!
Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
1 box Spice Cake mix
1 15 oz can Pure Pumpkin
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 stick of Butter, softened
1/2 c Walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour cookie sheet or use parchment paper.
Add the cake mix, pumpkin puree, egg and soft butter into a bowl and mix it all just until combined. (I used my hand mixer but a spoon would work just as well.
Drop spoonfuls of dough about two inches apart on the cookie sheet
Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.
3/4 stick Butter, softened
1/2 cup Cream Cheese, softened
2 cups Confectioners Sugar
