Third Thursday Blog Hop: What’s Your Favorite Fall Recipe?

Once a month, Hearts at Home sponsors a blog hop where you can “hop” around to different mom blogs and glean wisdom from other moms.  Today we’ve asked our moms to share their favorite fall recipe.

A favorite fall recipe for the Savage family is Persimmon Pudding.  I’m not going to share the recipe today because persimmons aren’t found everywhere.  But I’m curious if your family enjoys persimmon pudding.  Are there any persimmon pudding fans out there besides me?

Last year my friend, Tammy Maltby turned me on to the most incredible Pumpkin Cookie recipe. These are absolutely delicious and they are my new favorite fall cookie!

Here’s the recipe, right off Tammy’s website (I omit the orange rind just because we never have it on hand!)


3/4 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1 c. pumpkin
1 egg
2 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tea nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tea vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter
3 tbsp cream cheese
1-2 tbls cream (or milk)
3 tablespoons of grated orange rind

Cream shortening, sugar, and pumpkin. Add egg and vanilla mix well. Add sifted dry ingredients. Drop from spoon onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.Beat frosting ingredients until smooth. Frost cookies after they have cooled.

Makes 48 cookies.

  1. Never tried persimmon pudding. Never cracked open a persimmon. Do share. Pinning the pumpkin cookie recipe.

    I’m not even sure what a persimmon is! LOL But your cookie recipe looks scrumptious!

    How much cream cheese? It seems to have been left out of the recipe.

    • JillSavage says:

      Oh my…I’ve never noticed that. I have emailed Tammy to ask her. I believe I’ve made the recipe just like it is without the cream cheese, however I’m not at home to look at the recipe card where I might have added something to it. I’ll let you know as soon as Tammy emails me back!

    • JillSavage says:

      Sarah, thank you for catching that! Tammy says it’s 3 TBSP of cream cheese!
