 Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup cooked pumpkin (cut in half, scoop out seeds, place cut side down add small amount of water in baking pan and bake at 350 degrees until soft.  Peel and mush or blend the pumpkin.)
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar (maple syrup or honey)
2 eggs
2 teaspoon baking pwder
2 cups all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional) OR 1-2 cups chocolate chips (optional)

Mix all of the ingredients together, adjust spices to your taste,  and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.  Drop by the spoonful. onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 8 to 12 minutes.

*Try substituting sweet potatoes or butternut squash (or any winter squash) for the pumpkin for a different taste.  or put them in muffin tins or bake in a loaf pan.  These are a cake like cookie texture.
They are incredibly tasty (ridiculously good, even), and you can eat all you want, because they're made from vegetables!!!!  YES!!!  Don't tell your family they are good for them.

October 31 - Focus on the kitchen, the heart of the home. Cook things with pleasant aromas. Pick a meal the family can cook together - include everyone in a task and take pictures so everyone can remember moments in the kitchen together - test tasting, being creative, laughing and loving. Remove discontentment with your home or family and give thanks to God for the home God has given you to in which to create a haven for your family.
