These are a favorite with my children:

Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies

Combine and set aside: 2 1/2 c. flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. salt

Cream: 1/2 c. softened butter, 1 1/2 c. sugar

Add to butter mixture and beat until light and creamy: 1 c. pumpkin, 1 egg, 1 tsp. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well blended. Mix in 1 c. chopped nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto greases cookie sheet. Smooth tops of cookies. Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

Sorry, but I forgot to write on my card how much this makes. My family likes to sandwich these together with peanut butter and jelly.

I belong to two groups over a groups.yahoo.com that are great, Country Kitchen and Slow Crock (something like that) I am a crock pot cook most winters. Back of the woodstove works just as well with a great pot. Hope you like this, we made a trial run of it, since we are having a big Thanksgiving, wanted to try something new.

These are my three recipe favorites I visit all the time, if anyone else has any they use all the time please post them!
