Penuche (pun-NOO-chee) is a brown sugar fudge-like candy. The name is derived from the Mexican word for "raw sugar" or "brown sugar."
Canned pumpkin appears in the market in two forms: the plain cooked, puree vegetable, and a variation labeled "pumpkin pie filling," which contains sweeteners and spices. Choose the plain version for these nut-spiked cookies.
To shape these spice cookies, scoop the dough using a small ice cream scoop.
Sprinkle minced nuts on top of the penuche frosting before it sets.
