Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

October 22, 2013


I've had this recipe for what feels like forever.  I'm not sure where it came from, all I know is it produces moist, soft and delicious pumpkin cookies.  There's nothing like a soft pumpkin cookie enjoyed with a cup of hot coffee on a Fall evening.  They would also make a perfect whoopee pie cookie!!
 
 They are simple to make, and store for about 1 week in a sealed container.  I have not ever tried freezing them {they don't last that long....} but I would think they would freeze fine, unfrosted.  The frosting is optional, they really are good either way.

October 10, 2017

When I started  Cobble Hill Farm Apothecaryin 2013, it was meant to be a "someday" retirement business. With all of the other soap & skincare companies out there, we honestly had no idea that it would even be a possibility of doing as well as it did so soon. But it has, and for that we are incredibly grateful. (I...

sigh......

Probably not a good thing since this is a homesteading blog. It seems that the attempt to keep all balls in the air whilst one also tries to also craft a homemade life is, um, not possible. At least not on this small homestead. And at...
