Anywho, I think someone asked for the pumpkin cookie recipe I mentioned the other day, so I'll go ahead and share that.
I just made these 2 days ago aaaand.. they're almost gone now. The only difference was I added a handful of chocolate chips to mine...
1 1/4c packed brown sugar
1 tsp anise extract (or vanilla)
1 1/2c canned pumpkin
2 1/2c all-purp flour
4tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Preheat oven to 375ºF
Cream shortening and sugar, then add applesauce. Mix well and add anise oil & pumpkin. Sift dry ingredients, then blend into wet mixture. Drop by heaping tsp onto baking sheet. (they WILL puff up and get bigger!) Bake 12-15 minutes.
Not sure where the original recipe came from, as a friend sent it to me (snail mail.)
This week has been pumpkin week. The temps have been so cold, it's definitely felt like fall. Pumpkin veggie soup, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin ale, pumpkin spiced oatmeal.. :d
