1/4 teapoon allspice, ground

1 cup currants

Orange Glaze for Spider Web

6 ounces butter, room temperature

Cream butter with both sugars on medium speed about 5 minutes until light and creamy. Add pumpkin, eggs and vanilla, next sift in flour, baking powder and soda, spices and add currents.

Bake cookies in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until firm. Let cookies cool for five minutes and remove to cool on a baker's rack until completely cool.

For orange glaze, cream butter with sugar, blend well. Next add in orange zest, juice and bitters blending until smooth. Make a pin wheel of orange glaze with a pastry bag starting in the middle going round and moving outward. Taking the tip of a paring knife, lightly pull the knife over the glaze from the center to the outside of the cookie.

1 tablespoon chopped pecans

Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl; set aside. Combine pumpkin and next 3 ingredients; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

1 cup quick oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup margarine or butter softened

For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet; spread into shape using a thing metal spatula. Bake at 20 to 25 minutes until cookies are firm and lightly browned.

Perfect timing! I am at home with a sick child today so I decided to do some baking and I was wondering what to do with that leftover pumpkin in my refrigerator. I'm going to make some pumpkin cookies for Halloween treats.

Have you ever made Pumpkin Bars or Pumpkin roll? It has a cream cheese icing. I'll look up my recipe & post it for you. The Pumpkin Roll is the same thing, except it is rolled up jelly roll style & sprinkled with powderd sugar.
