Since it’s November, I wanted to make something that contains pumpkin, even though I’m not a very big fan of pumpkin. After some searching, I found a recipe for iced pumpkin cookies, which sounded fairly appetizing. It’s a very simple recipe. Mix the dry ingredients, mix the wet ingredients, and then mix them all together. What I really like about the cookies is that they are almost cake-like in their texture. The outside has a slight crunch but the inside is very soft. Not only does the icing sweeten the flavor, it adds some nice embellishment to an otherwise plain looking cookie. Even though I don’t really like pumpkin, the cookie tastes pretty good.
I’m now inspired to do a twist on this recipe. Instead of using pureed pumpkin, I am going to use applesauce. They both have a similar texture and amount of moisture. And since I love apples, I’m bound to like those cookies even more. We’ll see what happens.
