AFTER you VOTE, make Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookies 
(fyi, we prefer to double the recipe, using the big can of Libby's Pumpkin)

For 5 dozen:
2 C sugar
1 ½ C shortening
- Cream together above ingredients.

1 ½ C Libby pumpkin (NOT pie filling, just canned pumpkin)
3 eggs
- Add above ingredients to sugar mixture.

-In separate bowl mix the following:
4 C flour
3 tsp cinnamon
1 ½ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
2 ½ tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
- Combine dry ingredients with creamy mixture.

-Add chocolate chips and walnuts
12 oz. chocolate chips or more!
½ to 1 C chopped walnuts (optional)

-Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.

-Bake at 350* for 10 to 12 mins.

- Be sure to wrap tightly in plastic wrap or store in air tight container.  They will stay moist and yummy if stored well.

Note from Pumpkin Cookie fan, Robyn: ~My brother, Chris, became a professional at making these cookies. They became another family favorite and he would frequently double the recipe (using the big can of Libby pumpkin) and make 10 dozen of these cookies. Thanks Karee for introducing our family to this delicious recipe!!!

Sister Sowards - Thank you so much for what you had to say and for taking the time to say it. You're an inspiration to me in more ways then I could possibly list here and I couldn't love you more :)

All of it is true. I pray you will believe it. And live it.

The two of us can make a pact: we will try to act always with "What would Joycelyn do?" as a guide for our choices. We can do this because we know in whose pattern SHE follows. I sure love you.

And OPEN the dang door when VTers come! Who knows what pleasure and blessing THEY will bring into your life? Do it for Sister Allen. And the inner reward will be yours. Choose Well my sweet friend.

I was lucky enough to get this recipe from you years ago and it is a family favorite! Austin will come in when he smells them and just jump up and down with excitement.
