Pumpkin Cookies & I'm Getting Old

Here is the recipe for those pumpkin cookies I was talking about yesterday. You know, the ones Mike said I would make before he actually asked me if I could. Luckily I found this easy peasy recipe from Better Homes and Gardens.

Melt in Your Mouth Pumpkin Cookies:
2 cups butter, softened {aka 4 sticks of butter}
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda 
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 15 ounce can pumpkin
4 cups all-purpose flour

I really like my Martha Stewart Containers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
In a large bowl, beat 2 cups butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add  sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat until combined. Add eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla; beat until combined. Beat in pumpkin. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour.
Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.{I did tablespoon size heaps} Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until tops are set. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.
Must Let Cool....but They are SO Yummy
Then Enjoy these super easy to make cookies.

There is also a recipe for a frosting that goes on top, but I figured one box of  butter was plenty on these cookies. I had to make them low fat somehow. ;) 

Also today is my Birthday!!! My mom asked my today if I felt old since I'm now a quarter of a century! AAAHHH!!!!  Here's a picture of my Birthday {Cheese}Cake from this weekend. 
This is where I gained so much weight over the weekend. Damn you cheesecake! Why do you have to taste so damn good?! I hope today is a good day because it's my Birthday and we put an offer in on a house!!!
