This recipe makes a soft, cake-like cookie. I developed this recipe using Anne L. Watson’s book ‘Baking with Cookie Molds’. She gives the basic framework to develop your own recipes for molded cookies. It’s a very informative book and I highly recommend it.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Ingredients

1 cup butter
1 egg
½ cup molasses
¼ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup canned pumpkin
2 tsp vanilla

½ cup sugar
¼ tsp salt
4 cups flour (plus additional)
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp cardamom
½ tsp allspice
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp clove
¼ tsp nutmeg
.

Directions

Melt butter in microwave for one minute intervals at half power. Add molasses, brown sugar, pumpkin and vanilla. Beat egg in a separate bowl, then blend into the above ingredients.

In a separate, larger bowl, whisk together sugar, salt, flour and spices. Add the wet ingredients and blend.

Add additional flour until you have a smooth, workable dough (amount depends on moisture content of your pumpkin). It will be soft and feel a bit sticky. Chill dough for about ½ hour before molding cookies.

If your cookies are thick, heat oven to 350° F (177° C) and drop to 300° F (149° C) after putting them into the oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until edges are starting to brown.

If your cookies are thin, bake at 350° F (177° C) for 10 to 15 minutes or until edges have browned.

Cream Cheese Cookie Dip

1 heaping Tbsp cream cheese
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3-4 tsp milk or cream

Blend cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Add milk or cream a teaspoon at a time until smooth and creamy. Put in small individual bowls for dipping the cookies.
