Halloween Desserts--Pumpkin Cookies
The look of them when baked
Want to try a delicious cookie for the upcoming Halloween or any holiday season?
My mother passed away it will be four years on the twenty-second of October. She was a very loving and caring woman and mother. She never asked much from us kids but love and respect. We had both for her. I just wanted to share one of her favorite recipes with you all and hopefully you get as much enjoyment out of it as we did when us kids were helping her making this recipe!
I remember when I was younger, and my mother making this cookie for Christmas!! BUT I figured since it was close to Halloween and pumpkin is usually the theme for Halloween why not share the recipe with you all!! Hope you enjoy this hubpage and put the recipe into action!
Why just save them for two of the major holidays!! Make them all year round. Thanksgiving is a great time to make them as well!

The ingredients for the recipe are the following:
1 cup chopped nuts
1 cup raisins
2 1/2 cup flour
3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup pumpkin
Get all your ingredients, utensils, and mixing bowls together before starting the recipe.

Grease cookie sheet
Cream your shortening, then add your sugar and eggs (one at a time). Add pumpkin, stir in all dry ingredients. Gradually stir in nuts and raisins. Drop by teaspoon fulls on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 mins. Make sure that bottom is golden brown.
You may also subsitiute the walnuts or raisins for chocolate chips if you would like or just leave them out altogether!!
