Finding Beauty through Baking ~by Susan Baxter-Peace

Prolific Pumpkin November 24, 2013

Well, the new babe has been here for just over six weeks, and although the baking has not been as frequent, it has been happening as we adjust to our bigger family. The problem right now is not so much the baking, but finding the time and arm freedom to post! But here I go, doing what I can when I can, even if it is typed with one hand!

We have been getting some lovely squash and pumpkins in our veggie boxes as the fall continues on, and I have been trying to make more of an effort to not have anything go to waste from our boxes. So I often cook up a pumpkin, puree it, and then freeze it in half cup sizes for use in various recipes. I have a pumpkin muffin recipe I recently made, and could have eaten the whole dozen in one sitting if I let myself.

But the recipe I have been most pleased to discover this year is a pumpkin molasses cookie that is so soft and delicious I literally have to hide them or they’re gone in no time. I found the recipe when I wanted to make something for a trip to my grandparents’. You can find the recipe here, but I made one little adjustment, and that was to use a 1/2 tsp of baking soda instead of 2, because 2 tsp seemed like a lot to me, and they turned out just fine. Better than fine, scrumptious in fact! This is definitely a new favourite!

    these cookies are the best! they are so soft and delicious. I ate about 20 of Susie’s cookies … and probably could have done more damage to the batch! will definitely be trying these on my own.
