Soft Pumpkin Cookies

I’m not a fan of pumpkin, but John is, and he tells me these are quite good!

Start: 1 cup butter, 1 cup sugar

Add: 1 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 2 cups flour

Add: 1 cup raisins, 1 cup walnuts (chopped)

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar, then add the next wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients in order, finishing with raisins and walnuts. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Optional icing (though I haven’t tried this): 2 cups confectioner’s sugar, 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 tsp. vanilla, 3 Tbsp. cream/OJ/rum.
