Happy Halloween treat

It's all the buzz around the Bacon house today, in case you didn't check your calender, tomorrow is Halloween! The kids can not wait to put on their costumes and get themselves some treats. I decided to make Mr. Bacon and I a treat too. (Of course we'll sneak some out of the kids buckets after they go to bed tomorrow, but how about a treat for during the day!!) One of our local grocery stores each fall has pumpkin spice cookies for sale, $4.99 for TWELVE cookies! EEK. I've been searching high and low for a recipe that matches these cookies and I've finally found it. I couldn't wait to share it with everyone here. So Trick or Treat, Here's a yummy recipe for your Halloween that you can enjoy the rest of fall too!

Pumpkin spice cookies

3/4 cups butter softened (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground all spice or ground cloves

extra sugar for rolling cookies in

Mix butter, sugar, egg and molasses in bowl or mixer. Add in spices, baking soda, and flour. Mix well. Roll 1 tbsp dough into 1" balls and roll in sugar. Place on baking sheet. Bake at 350* for 10-12 min. They should get cracked and puffy in the oven. Don't over bake them! They'll turn into rocks.

Once again these don't take that long to make, so bake some up for a great Halloween treat for yourself! I hope you enjoy them.
(and they go very well with a cup of coffee with some pumpkin spice coffee creamer!)
