I love fall pumpkin! When the weather begins to get cold and the leaves are changing colors, I begin to think about fall pumpkins. The wonderful smell of it cooking in the kitchen gives me a warm fuzzy feeling! It smells so delicious and inviting. I could eat pumpkin in about anything from pies to cakes and especially cookies.
My grandma McConnell used to make the best pumpkin cookies! When I got married I stole the recipe from my Mom's recipe box.
No one liked them except me for many years. So I never made them very often, because I would have eaten them all myself!
When I had children I was able to make them a lot more because they liked them. My daughter and husband were not a fan of them, but we didn't care that left more for the boys and I.
Making a double batch of the frosting is the best! You can put it on pretty thick that way! I also like to leave out the nutmeg and add more cinnamon and ginger. We not fans of nutmeg in our pumpkin goodies. The cloves in pumpkin do not taste good either to us. I consequently leave that out too.
The kitchen always smells so good in the fall when you are baking the fall pumpkin. The smell of it always makes me feel happy and warm. I remember the smell of my grandmas kitchen as she baked the fall pumpkin too.
I don't know how you feel about fall, but it is one of my favorite times of year! The fall pumpkin, apple and squash. All the smells of the harvest and the beautiful colors of the season. Fresh apple cider tastes so wonderful as you drink it. The cool air in your nostrils makes you feel refreshed and energized. I always begin to crave fall pumpkin cookies!
