Gluten Free Pumpkin Cookies

To contact us Click HERE
     When my children were in elementary school, I found this recipe for pumpkin cookies on the inside of a can of Libby's  pumpkin. These cookies were a fun fall treat for them to come home to and a great way to use up extra pumpkin if I was making pumpkin muffins or pumpkin bread. The taste of pumpkin in these cookies is subtle, not as strong as pumpkin pie. Whenever I substitute things in a recipe in order to make it gluten free, I hold my breath a bit hoping they'll come out the way I remember them tasting.  They did!

Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies
1.  Prepare dry ingredients:  In a large bowl put:
(1)  2 1/2 cups of gluten free flours - I always use equal amounts of rice, sorghum, and tapioca starch/flour.
(2) Add spices and leavening:  1 t cinnamon, 1/2 t ground nutmeg, 1/2 t salt, 1 t baking soda, and 1 t baking powder. I think next time I will add 1/2 t of pumpkin pie spice!

2.  Cream butter and sugar:
(1)  In a large bowl or mixer cream together 1/2 cup of softened butter with 1 1/2 cups of  sugar (or 1 cup of fructose which I used).
(2)  Mix in 1 cup of pumpkin, 1 egg and 1 t vanilla.

3.  Combine ingredients:  Mix in the dry ingredients until blended together.  As you can see, I like to add some oatmeal to these cookies. 

4.  Bake cookies:  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a greased cookie sheet and smooth the tops.
Bake them at 350 for 12-15 minutes. This recipe comes with a glaze and you can decide to either have them with less sugar or add the glaze.

5.  Making Cookie Glaze:  Mix 2 cups of powdered sugar in a bowl with 3 tablespoons of milk, 1 T of melted butter and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth.  Drizzle the glaze over the top of cold cookies.
