1 cup Butter, softened
2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup mashed cooked pumpkin
1 Large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped English walnuts
Frosting For Your Cookies
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Butter, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Fine chopped English Walnuts
Heat oven to 350°F.
Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in 1 cup finely chopped walnuts.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto un greased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool completely before you do anything with your cookies.
Combine all frosting ingredients except walnut pieces in medium bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Frost cooled cookies. Garnish with walnuts, if desired.
You will come out a lot better with your cookies if you use a new or light colored baking pan. If you use a dark colored baking pan your cookies may burn.
Be sure to use regular canned pumpkin in this recipe and drain as much of the liquid out of it as possible.
I hope if you make these delicious cookies that you will come back and tell us all how they turned out for you.
Why? You could have made it a wonderful hub with more images. It is very interesting and amazing. I don't know how it will be tasting!!! But I like the idea and the image is tasting great.
I hope this walnut is similar to our "velaga Kaya" or "velagapandu". And we make tasty chutneys with it. The pulp is eaten as it is also and tastes good.
This sounds really tasty crazyhorsesghost and thanks for sharing it. I like pumpkin and walnuts and cream cheese icing, it all sounds like a very complimentary group of ingredients. You have any Gingersnap cookie recipes?
I will post a Gingersnap Cookie recipe I have in a few minutes.
And another one... how good this looks. My daughter loves to bake. I am going to email her this recipe and let her make it. How fun. Thanks!
Thanks. Let me know how they turn out for her. These are really good. I'm making tons of cookies right now to fill up the gift boxes I give out to family and friends at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I bake and freeze a lot of them until I get ready to fill up the gift boxes. Thanks for your comment. It is appreciated.

I had a friend years ago who named their Llasa "Useless." Cute name, but not appropriate for this dog. This little thing was far smarter than both her owner and me. After a painful break-up in my 20's, I unexpectedly took over the care of a pup and named him Solo to...
