Baking Pennsylvania Pumpkin Cookies I still do; a recipe given to me by a neighbor when we lived in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania a borough of Pittsburgh. Since 1972 I have baked these cookies only at Halloween time. I give them to my neighbors (instead of cookies at Christmas; they love it.) and the last few years I bake about 175 cookies for the high school students of daughter Nicole who teaches English at Southridge in Kennewick. (They love them too.)
Last week I tried doing something different with the recipe by adding more spices other than cinnamon like cloves, nutmeg and ginger. I got this idea from a recipe I saw on Pinterest. Not a good Idea. Yesterday, I spent the day baking and frosting over two hundred cookies using the tried and true original recipe. This is the best recipe ever.
Happy Halloween! Renée
