My dad always said that ugly cookies tasted the best.
And these pumpkin cookies may fit that category. They certainly can't be described as cute - but then, maybe looks are not everything.
My sister gave me this recipe for soft moist pumpkin cookies and my children (and me) are loving them. This makes a large batch - great to stock the freezer. We actually think they taste best straight out of the freezer.
The (Ugly) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie
3 cups mashed pumpkin
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cup oil
6 cups flour (I used half whole wheat.)
2 T baking powder
2 T cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 T. baking soda
3 tsp vanilla
3-4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)
Combine pumpkin, sugar, oil, and egg well. Mix in all other ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 9 minutes.
