With just a hint of pumpkin flavor and a buttery cinnamon frosting, these cakelike drop cookies are sure to be a hit at a fall gathering. Denise Smith, a field editor from Lusk, Wyoming, shared the big-batch recipe.
This cookie recipe has won a purple Champion Ribbon at our local County Fair. It also is a favorite of our family. Everyone is always asking what is the "secret" ingredient that makes these cookies so exceptional. Try them and find out just how delicious they are.
I love to play around with different fillings in homemade cannolis. I've used pumpkin pie pudding (when it's in season at the store) in this recipe, but you can also make it with canned pumpkin and vanilla pudding. —Barbara Carlucci, Orange Park, Florida
