Iced Pumpkin Cookie Recipe


Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Let's get ready for Autumn! Shall we? Don't you get excited to those bright orange color popping everywhere, leaves color are changing, pumpkin carvings, Halloween,Thanksgiving and the smell of pumpkin pie all over the house. I DO!!! I'm in the mood for some pumpkins right now. C'mon lets hang out in my kitchen and bake some Iced Pumpkin cookies... Before we start mixing up ingredients for this delightful snack. I'm taking you back to the history of the Pumpkins, little bits and pieces of  information I gathered from internet..wink:)

"The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon (πέπων), which is Greek for “large melon". The French adapted this word to pompon, which the British changed to pumpion and later American colonists changed that to the word we use today, "pumpkin"Pumpkins, like other squash, are thought to have originated in North America. The oldest evidence, pumpkin-related seeds dating between 7000 and 5500 BC, were found in Mexico "(source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pumpkin_cultivation)


"Pumpkins are popular at Halloween when they are carved into Jack-o'-lanterns. The practice was brought to the United States by Irish immigrants who originally carved turnips into Jack-o'-lanterns. In America, pumpkins were more plentiful and cheaper than turnips, and so came about the switch from turnips to pumpkins. "(source:http://homecooking.about.com/od/foodhistory/a/pumpkinhistory.htm)

I'm in-love with Pumpkin flavor, I remembered my first pumpkin pie and it was divine! This time of the year, pumpkins pretty popular and they are inexpensive... Perfect way to bake some sweet treat for the whole family to enjoy, The sweet thing about this, I got the easiest recipe to share with you! I found this recipe at Allrecipes.com , As you know Me!, I only use ingredient I have on hand, being said that, I omit few ingredients on the original source. The pumpkin cookie turn out really good to my family liking and the store bought cream cheese icing is just perfect addition. The perfect way to end our Chili dinner.. (wink)
Below is my simplified Ice Pumpkin Cookie recipe. Check this out and let me know what you think.:) C'mon lets start baking!




Ingredients:

2 1/2 cup flour
1 cup  can pumpkin puree
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
