Pumpkin Drop Cookies

Several of Gail’s daughters and a number of grandchildren like to cook. Here’s a recipe invented one autumn day by her oldest daughter who had a craving for cookies. If you love pumpkin flavors in the fall and want an easy baking project, try this recipe.

Susan’s Easy Pumpkin Drop Cookies

1 yellow cake mix

1 can pumpkin

2 eggs

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/4 t. nutmeg

1/4 t. allspice

1/4 t. cloves

Mix all together and drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet.  Bake 350 degrees until when touched doesn’t leave an impression.


Susan shared this recipe via email and I’ve saved it for 9 years. I’m getting that fall craving for pumpkin-flavored foods so I might have to get out the spices and a mixing bowl to give this recipe a try.

She said that she was taking the cookies over to the folks so she wouldn’t have them around the house tempting her. Mom and Dad enjoyed visits from their daughters and looked forward to their daughters’ cooking and baking binges.

“Sister Karen must have been in the same mood as she took them beans and ham. It is hard to cook for one.”
