tis the season.
i hope you're not sick of pumpkin yet!
this is the recipe that started it all. my mother, sisters and i have been making pumpkin cookies with this exact magazine tear-out for over twenty years. that creepy little girl still scares me the first time i see her every october
|here's our ingredients for the day|
|let's pause for a moment to admire the packed brown sugar. i want to build sandcastles with it.|
delicious sandcastles of sin.
|start by mixing the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt|
|next cream the butter|
|gradually add sugars and keep mixing until light and fluffy and an unappetizing color|
|next add vanilla and egg, beat well|
alternate additions of pumpkin & dry ingredients
i did mine in 3 shifts
can you see the dough turning orangey?
|now it's time to add the chocolate chips|
|i decided there weren't enough chips so i added more.|
anyone who tells you not to is a scrooge and a phony. or diabetic.
|mix it up and contemplate diving in|
|for each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto greased cookie sheet. |
that makes for some huge cookies. i use my large cookie scoop instead which is about 1/8 cup
remove from oven and let cool
mmm... delicious. don't let the doggies eat any.
