Pumpkin Cookies

This is my gf adaptation of a regular gluten recipe. If you want to make the original, non-gf version, use 2 1/2 cups flour and omit xanthan gum.


1 c brown sugar
1 c shortening
1 c canned pumpkin
1 egg
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t vanilla
1 t pumpkin pie spice
1 t nutmeg
1 t cloves
2 1/2 c gluten free flour (I used about 1/2 c sorghum flour, 3/4 c white rice flour, 1 c tapioca flour, and 1/4 c potato flour)
3/4 t xanthan gum 

Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cube butter
2 c powdered sugar
1/2 t vanilla

Cream together brown sugar, shortening, pumpkin and egg. It will look kind of chunky. Add in baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cloves. Mix in flour and xanthan gum. Spoon onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes. Frost when cool.
