Time to make plans for a Fall Afternoon Tea Party........You will need Pumpkin Cookies and Bev Meller....the "Queen of Tea Cozies" gave me this recipe last year which is perfect!
Here is how easy these cookies are and by the way...you will have about 5 dozen or more! You can easily freeze some for later......
In a large bowl mix these together: 2 1/2 cups sifted flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp ginger, 3/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon. After combining these- mix with above 6 ingredients. NOW ADD THESE: 1 1/2 cups of canned pumpkin, 3/4 cup nuts and 3/4 cup raisins. Keep the cookie sheet cold before dropping heaping tablespoons of dough on it. And chill dough between each batch.
Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Cool cookies on waxed or brown paper.
Withhold nuts in this recipe if anyone has allergies!
