Pumpkin Cookies

My mom emailed me a cookie recipe and boy is it good!  We had these for Thanksgiving instead of pumpkin pie-the kids aren't pumpkin pie fans and I'm not either.  We'd rather eat cookies!

Pumpkin Cookies
2 cups GF flour blend (I use 4 cups rice flour, 1 1/3 cups potato starch, 2/3 cup tapioca flour)
1/2 cup oat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp cinnamon (I think mine is more of a heaping tsp)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups cugar
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin
1 T egg replacer mixed with 2 T rice milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.
Beat all ingredients in large bowl until completely mixed. 
Place by spoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheet.  Wet fingers and gently flatten and shape cookies into little round disks.  (If you don't shape them you will have ugly pumpkin mounds as the cookies don't flatten as they bake).
Bake 18-20 minutes.
Cool on wire racks and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Chewy, yummy!
