The fall and autumn season utilizes spices, nuts, and dried fruits. Using these ingredients in cookie recipes can make flavorful treats to make for Halloween parties, or for easy treats to make for the family during the fall months. Here are some easy recipes to try using these ingredients.

Coconut Hobgoblin Rolled Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut

Cream the sugar and shortening together. Fold in the grated zest. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, scraping the bottom after each addition. Sift the dry ingredients together, and add to the creamed mixture. Stir in the coconut. Divide the cookie dough in half, and roll each portion into a log, each length depending on how large you want your cookies. Wrap in wax paper and chill for at least an hour or more until firm. Take out the logs and slice in about 1/4 inch slices. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • Granulated sugar, for rolling

Cream the sugar and shortening together. Stir in the egg and molasses, and mix until smooth. Mix the dry ingredients together, and add to the batter. Roll cookies into balls about the size of a walnut, and roll each in granulated sugar to coat. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Cream the sugar and shortening together. Add in the eggs, and scrape the bowl well. Add in about half of the dry ingredients mixed together, then the mincemeat and nuts. Scrape the bowl well. Add in the rest of the dry ingredients. Drop the cookie dough from a spoon onto a lightly greased baking sheet or silicone sheet line baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
