Here's my pumpkin cookie recipe, if you want to try it...

Pumpkin Cookies

1 c sugar
1 c canned pumpkin
1/2 c butter softened
1 Tbsp grated orange peel
2 c whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c golden raisins
1/2 c chopped nuts (your choice)

1/4 c butter
2 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 375
Cream sugar, pumpkin, butter and orange peel
Sift together dry ingredients
Add pumpkin mixture to dry ingredients and mix until blended
Fold in raisins and nuts
Drop by teaspoonful on ungreased cookie sheet
Bake for 8-10 minutes

Heat butter in saucepan until delicately brown
Stir in vanilla and powdered sugar (I sift mine into the pot to remove clumps)
Add milk until smooth

I'm an avid baker, but a novice so I don't know how exactly but, I think this recipe could be adjusted for cookies -- it makes an amazing bread/muffin. I should mention that I prefer to double the choc chips. xo

oh that looks so good. now if only i could find the time to make them....

{thanks for your very very sweet comment on my blog - so appreciated!!!}

hi...random reader here. You have a recipe for pumpkin curry? Can you share?

I love curry but can't seem to find a recipe to make it on my own (that I like, at least).

One of my coworkers makes those same pumpkin bars and I agree, the frosting is not thick enough. Have you ever made a pumpkin roll? baked in a jelly roll pan, it is my favorite (but rarely baked) pumpkin dessert. Def. a dessert - esp. when served with fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of nutmeg.

I'm making these right now. I was inspired and they sound yummy
