I am not much of a baker. Mostly because I have a problem with portion control. I do love my sweets though – cookies specifically. Usually my favorite cookie has walnuts, chocolate chips and oatmeal in it. Poor hubs so wishes that he could have a white flour, sugar, butter and chocolate chip cookie, but alas, those days are gone.
I am a great lover of pumpkin though and recently when I’ve wanted to make cookies I try to think in my head what ingredients are the ones calling to me. And as the fall, root vegetable and warming season is upon us the pumpkin called to me today. There were pumpkin oatmeal cookies, but those seemed like they were trying too hard. (Although I might try them out later.)
Here are the cookies. Super yummy and soft. Enjoy!
Am reading “The School of Essential Ingredients” right now. Next time I make cookies I will replace even more of the egg and will probably take a message from the narrator’s school and add the sugar in later… and allow more air into the wet ingredients by slowing down my blending.
