It’s cooking time! Or perhaps some of you are as blessed as I am this year. Mary Beth and her friends are doing the cooking!! 🙂 However, if you are looking for recipes, you might try this one for pumpkin cookies. If you’d like to see my recipes for Sweet Potato Casserole, Pumpkin Chiffon Pie and Pumpkin Fudge, you’ll find them if you go to my homepage and click on Food for the Tummy. It should bring up all my recipes.

         Pumpkin Cookies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg

Combine and cream the above.

Add:

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Sift together and add, mixing  mix well:

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Spread the frosting over the cooled cookies.

    I’m excited to try some of these pumpkin recipes. It will be my first time to cook with leftover halloween pumpkins. I was just thinking about what to do!

    • That’s great. Let me know how they turn out. I hope all is well with you and the guys. If you’re using fresh pumpkin, I think you’ll need to cook the pumpkin. You might need to look up a recipe for doing that. I don’t think I’ve ever used fresh pumpkin. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

      We leave for San Antonio on Tuesday. We’ve never seen Mary Beth’s new house. Haven’t been to Texas in quite awhile, so we’re looking forward to visiting her, as well as catching up with old friends.

      Love you,
      Liz
