Pumpkin cookies

I bought 2 more pie pumpkins from the Farmers Market so I have a lot of pumpkin puree to use up!  Who doesn't like cookies:)  So good & so easy!

Pumpkin Cookies
1/2 C unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 C molasses   ~ I didn't have & they still came out awesome!
1 egg
1 C pumpkin puree ~ homemade or canned
2 C all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2  tsp nutmeg
1/2 C milk *can use buttermilk*
sifted confectioners sugar, for dusting

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter & sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in molasses and egg.  Stir in the pumpkin puree.  In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Stir flour mixture into the creamed mixture along with the milk.  Blend thoroughly but do not over beat.  Drop cookie dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheet.

Bake at 375 for about 12 minutes, until set. Cool for a minute - remove to racks and continue to cool.  Dust cookies with confectioners sugar.  This will make about 3 dozen cookies.
