It’s that time of year, people! The day is November 10th and It’s. About. To. Go. Down! We have many traditions in this house and one of them is, we start our Christmas decorating around early to mid November. We’ve been listening to Christmas music in the house for a while now already, but today, we break open the decorations and go to town! One of the traditions for 3 years running was to pack up the family and head out to a corn maze in Lincolnton, GA called Kackleberry Farm. I’d bake some of my now famous Pumpkin Cakies (will explain in a sec) and we’d spend the day out on the farm, phones on silent, away from the world. Well, this year is going to be a bit different (We’re not in Georgia anymore and Kackleberry Farm closed it’s doors to focus on their family). To kick off the holidays, we decided to get the decorations out and still make the cakies! I found this recipe on All Recipes but I modified it a bit, used Gluten Free flour, and changed some of the ingredient levels to make the most DELICIOUS desert I’ve ever made. They are cookies with a cake like consistency, hence the name “Cakies”. So without further ado, here’s the recipe!
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups Gluten Free flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1. Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda w ith the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
2. Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
3. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.
Could substitute all or part oil with Applesauce
