Pumpkin Roll-Out Cookies

Here's a recipe for pumpkin cookies that you can roll-out and cut with cookie cutters. I made these tonight with my husband and children using the pumpkin puree I froze after Halloween.

My children loved making them and eating them. Since they contain pumpkin and minimal sugar, I was happy to let them have their fill!

The recipe came from allrecipes.com.
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon orange zest
1/2 cup solid pack pumpkin puree
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch salt
1. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and orange zest. Stir in the pumpkin. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well. Sift together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt; stir into the pumpkin mixture. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes and place onto an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Decorate with frosting or candy.

Coinstar: Get Rid of Change & Earn $10 More

I never used these coin-counting machines in the past because they took such a big percentage of the total amount. However, I was so happy to discover that the Coinstar machines give you 100% of your total if you get store credit at a participating retailer (instead of cash). Participating stores include Lowes, Amazon, and Starbucks.

Even better.... Coinstar will give you an extra $10 if you process $40 in change before December 6.

I took my jar of coins to Coinstar a couple months ago and got a credit at Lowes for more than $200!!!

My kids love the little bunny cookies. They make a perfect little treat anytime you need a reward for your little one. I used them when I was potty training my son. They are also great for putting in the plastic eggs during Easter.
