       Title: Pilgrim Pumpkin Cookies
  Categories: Polkadot, Lisa, Cookies, Vegetables, Autumn
       Yield: 3 Dozen
     1/3 c  Crisco
   1 1/3 c  Sugar
       2    Eggs, well beaten
       1 c  Canned pumpkin
       1 ts Vanilla extract
       2 ts Lemon juice
   2 1/2 c  Flour
       4 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Salt
     1/4 ts Ginger
     1/2 ts Allspice
       1 ts Nutmeg
       1 ts Cinnamon
            Sugar & cinnamon
   Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Cream shortening and sugar thoroughly.
   Add egg, pumpkin, and flavorings, mixing well.  Sift together dry
   ingredients and sift into creamed mixture.  Mix well.  Drop by large
   teaspoonfuls on a greased baking sheet (or a sheet covered in
   aluminum foil); these spread very little.  Sprinkle equal amounts of
   sugar and cinnamon, mixed together in a shaker, over cookies.  Bake
   about 15 minutes.

   I made these last night.  They're chewy and great with a cup of
   cinnamon tea, or a cup of hot chocolate with cinnamon sprinkled in it.
