Took Olive on a 4 mile hike this morning–got a little muddy. She won’t run with me, but at least she will hike.
Then I was in the mood to bake. I was craving pumpkin cookies, so I decided to combine two of my favorite recipes. My grandma’s pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and Mama Pea’s dough balls.
3 grocery stores later….
- 1/2 c. Earth Balance (or other non-dairy margarine)
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 3/4 c. powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1.5 c. whole wheat flour
- 1 c. unbleached organic flour
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix dry ingredients together in bowl. Mix wet ingredients in mixer. Add wet ingredients slowly in mixer. Once dough forms, refrigerate for 30 minutes. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

these cookies are now safely stored in a pumpkin cookie jar, away from the always ravenous Olive Sue.
