Looking for Pumpkin Recipes

There's just something about pumpkin in the fall. As soon as the weather starts to cool off, I start the annual craving for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. From the cookies, I quickly progress to all things pumpkin. All things pumpkin, of course, includes our favorite Pumpkin Pie Waffles, but it does not include Pumpkin Pie. I have a severe dislike for all things pie. Don't ask--it's more involved than you really care to know.

I've been collecting recipes for years, and I've tried a lot of interesting pumpkin recipes. The one recipe that I would love to find is the recipe for the perfect pumpkin cookie. I usually resort to buying my cookie fix at Harmon's. Don't get me wrong, Harmon's cookies are great, but there is nothing like eating a cookie while it's hot from the oven.

So here's what I want from you--all two of you who actually read my blog--please send me your favorite pumpkin recipes. It can be a recipe for cookies, muffins, soup, anything but pie. I'd offer the person with the best submission a fantastic prize, but that isn't really going to happen. I can send you a really nice email!!??!! So, if you have a great (or interesting) recipe--Please Share! I'll post my favorite next week.

Here is my favorite pumpkin recipe. I hope you like it.



3 Eggs (room temperature)
1 Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Canned Pumpkin
1 tsp. Lemon Juice
3/4 Cup Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
2 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 tsp. Salt


8 oz. Softened Cream Cheese
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1 Cup Powdered Sugar
4 Tbs. Margarine (I use butter, but that's just how I roll)


Beat eggs on high speed for 5 minutes. Add rest of cake ingredients. Mix together gently but well. Line a 10X15 Jelly Roll pan with foil. Spray foil with cooking spray thoroughly and pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool slightly. Roll cake up in roll with foil still on, spraying foil on outside as you roll so the cake won't stick when you unroll it. Let cool at least 30 minutes. Unroll cake and spread filling on cake. Reroll without foil.
