The pumpkin madness continues.
Day 11: Pumpkin Snickerdoodles
here. How did I find all of these recipes, you ask...Pinterest, of course.
Day 12: Spicy Coconut Pumpkin Soup
This was really good and different enough from our previous two soups that we didn't feel like we were eating the same thing. The recipe is from Better Homes and Garden's here.
Day 13: Old Fashioned Pumpkin Bread
It looks good right? Looks, and smells, can be deceiving. It was so gross I spit it out. Sooo molassesy. And I have nothing against molasses. It was like molasses punched me in the face. It smelled really good though so it was good potporri for my garbage can. No recipe. You don't want it.
Day 14: Pumpkin Doughnut Holes
Craving Chronicles and the name fits. I liked that they were baked and not fried; one, I don't have a fryer, two, I'm afraid of frying things, and three, it's so messy. The only tasking part about these was the rolling in butter and then cinnamon and sugar got slightly tasking after about 13...but that was before I'd tasted them! So worth it.
Day 15: Pumpkin Dump Cake
Cookies and Cups.
Day 16: Crockpot Pumpkin Pudding
I forgot to take a photo of this but it looked just like the one from Annie Oakley's Kitchen. This was on a Sunday when we spoke in church, so it was super easy and it was nice to use my crock pot for something different. It made the house smell really good too. Spencer loved it but I thought it was just okay. Ps. I don't use my crockpot nearly enough. I have a 101 crockpot recipes book but I haven't tried many of them. Anyone have any crockpot faves?
Day 17: Pumpkin Oreo Tarts
Adventures in Dessert. It was pretty yummy, but it didn't blow me away.
Day 18: Pumpkin French Toast.
I forgot to take a picture of this too, because it burned when I stuck it under the broiler for a second...or two. My new oven is hot.
Day 19: Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins
I would call these cupcakes instead of muffins, but don't worry, I still ate two for breakfast. I took them to work too and they were eaten very quickly. The struesel topping was yummy, yummy. I'm pretty sure I made a "Nom, Nom, Nom" sound whilst eating them. From Sugar Cooking.
Day 20: Pumpkin Butterscotch Brownies
Day 21: Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes
Day 22: Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate
Eggs on Sunday. And I finally opened my Halloween marshmallows. :)
Day 23: Pumpkin Fudge
Day 24: Pumpkin Doggie Biscuits
Undressed Skeleton, sent to me by my friend Kari, with the subject line, "Because you're THAT person." :) Yes, yes I am. I adapted this because I have a severe aversion to tuna and I didn't have rolled oats. I also thought painting it with smushed up berries was slightly ridiculous. I'm not that person. Belle LOVED this. I would suggest, of course, only one per day. There's a lot of stuff in it that could cause some diarrhea if your puppy ate too much.
My version of the recipe:
1 1/4 c wheat flour
1/4 c plus 2-3 Tbs pumpkin divided
Dash of baking soda
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup cheddar cheese
Combine all ingredients except 2-3 Tbs pumpkin; add pumpkin by tablespoons until a dough begins to form. Roll out and cut to desired shape. Bake at 350 on parchment-lined pan for ten minutes.
1/4 c Greek yogurt
3 Tbs Peanut butter
Combine till smooth and frost cooled cookies.
More to come after Halloween! This week I am concentrating on entrees rather than desserts. I'm slightly pumpkin desserted out. Slightly. I heart dessert.
