More On Pumpkins . . .

Pumpkin Cookies
Pumpkins have been on my brain lately - so I thought I'd post another pumpkin recipe! It is that time of year after all. This is a recipe I got from my mother - I've got a wealth of recipes from her. It's about time I start sharing some of them, no? She probably got this recipe from a cookbook somewhere, but we've changed it a little. I wish I could tell you where it originated, but since I can't here's the recipe in it's most recent form.

Pumpkin Cookies

1 15 oz. can pumpkin
½ c. applesauce
1 c. Splenda
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped walnuts
1 egg
2 c. flour or 1 ¾ c. wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1c. boiled raisins

Mix all ingredients in order given. Drop onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 F for 12 minutes.

And get ready for pumpkin yumminess! You can use sugar instead of Splenda if you prefer, but we usually like to eliminate straight sugar wherever possible.

I made a batch of these this week and I split up the dough and did raisins in half and white chocolate chips in the other half. I like chocolate in any form, so I had to try the white chocolate chips with these cookies! I think it turned out really good!

I also used an overripe banana instead of the half cup applesauce, because I didn't have applesauce but I did have a banana. I do that alot - substitute ingredients in a recipe that I don't have for something that I do have. I think it actually tastes fine - not a bad combination. So I guess I made pumpkin/banana cookies with white chocolate chips or raisins.

Ah, but they were good . . .
