Pumpkin Cookies

The cold season is finally deciding to settle in, and that means it’s time to break out the cider, hot cocoa, apumpkin choco chipnd . . . pumpkin cookies! Normally I make my pumpkin cookies with a box of spice cake, but I decided to venture out a little this time. Though not as simple as using a box cake, this recipe is still really easy and delicious. I made these cookies to deliver to some friends and they loved it!

 

Ingredients

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 cup white sugar

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

 

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

 

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon milk

 

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

 Directions

  • Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. Dissolve the baking soda into the milk and stir in.
  • In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
  • Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350˚F (175˚ C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

Pumpkin Patch Oreo Pudding Cups

pumpkin patch
Ingredients:
8 Chocolate pudding cups
1 package of Oreos
1 package of mini pumpkin candies
Directions:
First split 8 Oreos into halves, leaving one side with all the cream filling. Set the cream filling ones aside. Take the remaining sides of the Oreos and crush them to make Oreo crumbs.
Open the pudding cups and sprinkle Oreo crumbs over the pudding. This layer can be as thin or thick as you like.
Then take the Oreo sides you set aside. Partially wedge each Oreo side lengthwise into the back of a pudding cup so that it looks like a full moon.
Finally, place two or three mini pumpkin candies into each pudding cup on top of the Oreo crumbs.
Take a picture of your edible pumpkin patch and enjoy with friends and family!
