Gearing up for the holidays

This will be our first holiday season that we are really going to be selling our merchandise. Last year, we had just started our company so we were nowhere near ready for a big holiday push. I really love the holidays! Just the holiday spirit is what I enjoy the most. I love seeing the Christmas decorations out already in the stores. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas. I got a recipe of some of the most delicious cookies from one of my friends at work. The recipe was for pumpkin cookies. Usually when you get a recipe from someone and you try to make it yourself, you find that it doesn't taste as good as theirs. Not so with this recipe. My cookies turned out just as good as hers. I had the wonderful opportunity to make these cookies for another one of my girlfriends and her family. She told me, " they are the best cookies I have ever tasted!"
I want to share this wonderful recipe with you. It is perfect for the upcoming holiday season, or anytime that you want to taste this delicious snack.

Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin pie filling (half of can)
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins (you can use more or less or none at all)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Mix shortening, sugar, pumpkin, and egg. Blend well. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Put on ungreased cookie sheet by the teaspoonful. Cook in a 375 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.

Frosting *optional*

3 Tablespoons Milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Melt brown sugar and milk in saucepan over medium heat. When melted, take off of heat. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix well and spoon over cookies. Enjoy!!!!!

We have some wonderful holiday gifts for you to choose from here at Mommy Mogul. Since we were just sharing our pumpkin cookie recipe, I would like to share with you a favorite scent for the holidays. It is called Pumpkin Apple Butter. This fragrance is wonderful. It smells like the holidays and gives you that comfort feeling that you get during the holiday season.

We also have this wonderful candle called cinnamon roll. Even if you don't bake, it will smell like you are creating something wonderful in your oven. This candle is so authentic to freshly baked cinnamon rolls, that you can smell the hint of butter in the fragrance. It has a great throw and will fill your house with that wonderful aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls!

These are just a couple of the wonderful innovative gifts that you can find here at Mommy Mogul, during the holidays or any other time.
