Pumpkin Shortbread Cookies
For last week's Thanksgiving potluck dinner with our community I decided to add a twist to a traditional shortbread cookie. I used my mom's shortbread recipe that I remember having as a kid each Christmas. Then I made a butter cream frosting, added food coloring, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. A little sprinkle of cinnamon finished them off. The cookie part was great, and my pumpkin-ish frosting was also really yummy . . . but I think shortbread is better left alone. Why mess with a good thing? But these must have been a hit since they were all eaten up.
