Do You Think Al Will Like This?


All recipes is where I borrowed this recipe from.iced pumpkin cookie recipe It is called Iced Pumpkin Cookies.

The recipe may not be readable to all, so here are the directions.

ingredients

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1t. baking powder

1t. baking soda

2t. cinnamon

1/2t. nutmeg

1/2t. cloves

1/2t. salt

1/2 cup melted butter

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 cup canned pumpkin

1 egg

1 t. vanilla

2 cups confectioner’s sugar

3T. milk

1 T. melted butter

1 t. vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt, set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1t. vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in with dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.

Bake for 15-20 minutes in oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.

To make glaze: Combine confectioner’s sugar, milk, 1T melted butter, and 1 t. vanilla. Add the milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.

Now I adjusted my recipe. This is what I did.

I added whole wheat flour instead of white flour. I added 1 t. cinnamon, plus 1t. pumpkin spice, instead of the spices above. I used Splenda instead of regular sugar.

For the icing I made mine with 1/2 stick of melted butter, 1t. almond extract, instead of the vanilla. I didn’t glaze, I made the icing stiff enough to spread. I want to taste my icing!

Here It Is!!! I Did It!!!!

I don’t bake much anymore for a few reasons. One Al and I are both diabetics, and we don’t need the extra sugars. Two, we would eat them much too quickly with a nice cold glass of milk, and three, there is only the two of us, so I don’t bake hardly, besides I cook more than I want!! LOL

But, tonight Al is calm, except for his very sore thumb, so I decided to turn one of the music stations on the television. It is the CD that is from the seventies music, and then I turned it up a little bit high, and went to the kitchen and decided to give Martha Stewart’s Pumpkin doughnut muffins a try.

It was very easy. It definitely made more than the 12 muffins it was supposed to, so I made a little cake along with the muffins out of the left-over batter. The nice little brown touch you see is plenty of melted butter with sugar and a cinnamon mix sprinkled on top.

I have not had one, but I can bet my bottom dollar, that Al has one for his bed time snacks along with his medications.

It is just like riding a horse. You fall off and you get back on. You never forget how to bake! Yum Yum! Here they are! I did it!
