last night chloe and i made some pumpkin shortbread cookies, and this little video. the cookies were delicious - just the right amount of pumpkin, and the pumpkin added just a little chewiness to the shortbread. i added a little powdered sugar to the tops of ours, but you could also make a glaze from milk and powdered sugar.


2 1/4 cups flour

1 cup butter

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp. vanilla (or scrappings from a vanilla bean).

1 cup pumpkin

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

mix butter and sugar together until creamy, add pumpkin and vanilla, then spices and mix well. add flour and mix just until incorporated. turn onto floured surface and knead a few times over and then split dough into half and form two logs. wrap them in plastic wrap and place in the refridgerator for an hour. pre-heat oven to 350 F. cut cookies into 1/4 inch slices and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. bake for 12-15 minutes depending on your oven. dust with powdered sugar or wait until cool and dip in a glaze made from milk and powdered sugar.


coffee or tea. halloween, thanksgiving, and christmas. a banana - i am dead serious. a giggling toddler. breakfast.
