Almost thanksgiving and while most are thinking what to serve with their turkey.  As I am not hosting this year my focus is on what am I going to make for snacks between those Turkey meals.   I found this recipe in an old family recipe book made them years ago and forgot how good they are. Plus you can whip them up in no time.

Ankarsrum Mixer with the Roller and Scraper attachment
Preheat oven to 370 degrees
Makes about 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (your own or canned)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Place the pumpkin puree into your stainless bowl, since I used my own pumpkin it was a bit runnier than canned so I drained a bit of the juice off and added more pulp to make the cup. To this pumpkin add the sugar, oil , egg, salt, milk and vanilla.  Measure out your flour,cinnamon and baking soda.  Slowly add this to your liquid ingredients.  Once well mixed turn up higher for about 45 seconds to really whip air into them.   Reduce speed and blend in the chips and nuts.  This recipe is another example of the wonderful features of being able to so easily add ingredients to the Ankarsrum and see what is going on without having to stop it.  These cookies as many could be made in the plastic bowl instead but as I have mentioned  many times the results when using the roller and scraper is one of a kind mixing and results in lighter airier results than with whips.

Once well mixed drop by teaspoonful onto a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Bake in 370 degree oven for 12 minutes or till done.    Enjoy your cookies and hoping your Thanksgiving is filled with love, laughter and good times with Family & Friends and cherishing memories of those that cannot be around your table.
