Is it too late to blog about pumpkin cookies?


That's right, I'm blogging about pumpkin. In January. It may seem a bit odd, but I made these cookies earlier this week and they turned out so well, I had to share! We had our annual cook off at work this week and they turned out better than I expected when I made some changes to this recipe I found via Pinterest.


When I made the cookies, I used butter, whole wheat flour and almond flour. Next time, I want to use coconut oil in place of butter and cut back on the sugar (since coconut oil has a natural sweetness). Between the pumpkin and almond flour, they were perfectly soft and chewy!

Ingredients:
1 cup butter
¾ c. sugar
8 oz. canned pumpkin (half a can)
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1½ cups whole wheat flour
½ cup almond flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. nutmeg
 ½ tsp. salt
1 c. chocolate chips or raisins

Directions:
Preheat Oven to 350°
Cream butter and sugar.
Add pumpkin, eggs and vanilla; beat well.
Stir together flours and next 5 dry ingredients.
Add to batter; mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls two inches apart on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Makes 3 dozen cookies.

Have you experimented in the kitchen lately?

  1. I don't think it's odd posting about pumpkin in January at all. My family loves pumpkin. I was just thinking about making some pumpkin bread for them to devour. I just made middle of the cinnamon roll muffins the other day. The recipe is on my blog this week.
