Warm From the Oven

 Right now you can find pumpkin recipes 
for everything.
And the good news is that you can
actually find pumpkin on the shelves at the grocery stores this year.

Last year I got organized and 
made a recipe folder specifically for all
those delicious pumpkin recipes that 
I've made and collected over the years.

The one that is always on top are my
Kyle's Great Pumpkin Cookies.

These are the best ever pumpkin cookies for sure.
You can get the recipe by clicking here.

 Finding the right pumpkin 
for the front porch can be 
fun and exciting.
but a pumpkin can be more than that.
Pumpkin is a great source of many
good things, like vitamin E, B6 A, C
and many more.
Besides that it tastes good, it's challenging
to see how many different ways you can use it.

 I decided to try a new cookie this year.
It's called

Pumpkin Caramel Kiss Cookies

They're like a snickerdoodle cookie with pumpkin
and of course,
 a Hershey Caramel Kiss.

The recipe is from the blog
Something Swanky

I did change a couple of things.
I used all butter, no shortening,
I would increase the amount of pumpkin pie spice,
and not bake them on parchment paper,
 I like a crispier bottom cookie.

You"re right, cookies aren't the best
way to get all those nutrients from a pumpkin,
but they sure are pretty tasty.

Enjoy the vegetable of the moment,

Until Next Time-
