Cookie recipes using Libby's pumpkin include Nestlé’s old-fashioned pumpkin cookies and Food Network’s pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Both recipes require 15 minutes of preparation time and about 15 minutes of cooking time at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
The recipe from Nestlé that makes the old-fashioned pumpkin cookies includes 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. It also calls for 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar, 1/2 cup of butter softened, 1 cup of Libby’s canned pumpkin, 1 large egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Grease the baking sheets. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Beat sugar and butter in a mixer until it is well blended. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until it is smooth. Add the flour mixture. Drop rounded tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake them for 15 to 18 minutes. Cool the cookies on wire racks.
The Food Network recipe is similar and requires the same cooking time, but requires 2 ounces of sweet milk-chocolate chips. It also includes 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, making the recipe spicier.
