Pumpkin Cookies

January 16, 2005 - 2:40pm -- erin

This evening, unable to go to the store due to ice, I wanted to make cookies, but had to do it with what I had in the pantry.
Here's what I came up with!

Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup canned pumpkin
2/3 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 cup white chocolate chips

Mix wet and dry ingridients separately, except for the sugar which should be mixed with the wet ingridients. Mix the wet and dry together and add the white chocolate chips. Nuts can be added as well, if you like.

Getting the Hang of It

I made a couple of stylesheet changes yesterday that should make the articles look a little bit nicer in most browsers. Let me know if any of the sections are difficult to read on your computer.

I also turned on the Notification feature in the forums, which allows registered users to have replies to their forum post send to them. By default they go to your Inbox on the site, but you can have them sent to your email address if you prefer: just go into the "Edit Account" section and change your default notification mode.

Suggestions are welcome.

Welcome to The Fresh Loaf!

The Fresh Loaf will be a place for amateur bakers and bread enthusiasts to talk about bread, baking, bakeries, recipes, you name it. I suspect that artisan baking and traditional breads will be the main focus, but anything that gives people a rise is suitable.
