mmmm pumpkin.

So far it has been a great Monday. I got the monkey butt on the bus, came home cleaned my house , and then I went off to the gym for zumba. Today was my first full strength zumba complete with jumping for over a month!!! It felt GREAT!! I didn't mind jumping at all it was soo different then before when I had 2.5 more pounds around my neck. I also got a great gift from my teacher Autumn who brought me a much needed can of pumpkin (can't find it anywhere). So I finally got to make my pumpkin cinnamon chip cookies

I made these last year after finding them on the blog a Friend to knit with. I have to share them with all the lovely people who read my blog (that is right all two of you lol)

Yummm yumm just look at them. well here is the pumpkin cinnamon chip cookie recipe.

ingredients: 1 can pumpkin, 1c butter (softened), 1c sugar, 1/2 t salt, 1t vanilla, 1 egg, 2c flour, 1t baking soda, 1 t baking powder, 1 c cinnamon chips.

Preheat oven to 350 mix the pumpkin butter sugar together. Then add salt vanilla egg , next add flour baking powder, and baking soda. after all blended add chips. Drop by table spoon on cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes. (I used those rubber mats on my cookies sheets they are awesome fyi)

There you have it. It makes around 4 dozen cookies. they are cakey and delish.

Other then that life is good I am going to hop in the shower as soon as the last batch of cookies beep. Then work at knitting this...

My somewhat cowl is coming along nicely. I am almost done with the body then will just have to add the neck line and sleeves. :) I hope every ones Monday is going as great as mine and don't forget the last few days before the drawing for the stitch marker necklace. So post a comment and get entered :)

  1. What is the deal with canned pumpkin? I haven't been able to find it at the grocery store for months.
