Well, it worked better than last time.
AFTER: You've never seen more heavenly squash.... I cooked the heck right out of it...
So here's my final recipe...
Gingery Pumpkin Molasses Cookies
- ½ C all-purpose flour
- 1 C whole wheat
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground nutmeg
- ½ tsp ground cloves
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp ground cardamon
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ C butter, softened
- 1 C sugar
- ½ C brown sugar (who can leave out brown sugar?!)
- 1 C cooked pumpkin puree (can or home made)
- 1 egg
- ¼ C molasses
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls.
I suggest making them small. They turn out very cake like. I should have expected it. Chewy with crispy chewy edges, but its the cake sort of chewey. They tast pretty good, and even better when I added walnuts. My verdict, probably wont make again. I like using the pumpkin and the wheat flour, but I was looking for something with a ginger snap sort of chewy texture. I'm pleased though.
And it turns out I'm an idiot. Why my camera wasnt turning anymore was because I had it cocked. I took a pic of my lense cap. Another lesson learned at the expense of film.

Things are never done if you never start them. And, as always, here's no time like the present, for, you see, things are always done in the present. Everything you have ever done, has been done in a present. Now they are past. To make them past you must have them be created in the present. Futures are vague, infinite, and fleeting. Pluck the ideas you want from it, fill up your present, and make one heck of a past. If you want to do something, and have thought through it, and have been meaning too.... Just do it.

I went to New York June of last year. I did so because at the begining of the school year when it was proposed, my mother suggested we do it. Somehow we did find the money... it was there. And I made the payments and I got on the plane, had one heck of a time (even though I was horribly sick), and basicly, Just did it.
Its hard to keep up. Just doing things. There's being tired, or ill, or having things come up... But eventually if you keep thinking about it... You might find the motivation again...
But mainly, if you want to do it in your lifetime, do it now. Start it now. Just because you think you cant... You'll never know untill your doing it.
So... Just do it, or you never will.
