I am a hopeless sugar junkie, and this past Sunday I found myself craving a classic fall dessert. Something pumpkin was the order of the day.
As far as I have observed, pumpkin doesn't strongly feature in British cuisine. But in America, it's a seasonal favourite. We have the following pumpkin desserts available at this time of year: pie, cookies, cake, ice cream, muffins and cheesecake. And those are just the pumpkin varieties that immediately spring to mind! After hearing about this great recipe, I decided to go with the cookies. They turned out quite well, and I am already eager for another batch.

But isn't it worth it?
Adding the canned pumpkin
It smells like baby food -- blech
Mixing the Spices
I used milk chocolate chips in lieu of semi-sweet
Ready to bake...
...And voila! Ready to eat!
Enjoying the fruits of my labour
Or is pumpkin a vegetable?
Can I say the vegetables of my labour? Hmm...
