Pumpkin Cookies

Cookies are a weak spot for me, which can be a challenge especially when trying to find a good gluten free, dairy free cookie recipe.  Although spring is on the brink, my head is still in the cold considering that there’s about 2 feet of snow still on my front lawn.  Pumpkin cookies are a great fall and winter treasure.  Bob’s Red Mill (see bellow) has a great recipe for Pumpkin cookies, along with   Babbles Allergen Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I wanted to come up with my own recipe, bob’s red mill didn’t have quite the creative flare I was looking for, and even though Babble call’s their cookies allergen free, I still have a reaction to Oatmeal, even if its certified gluten free.  So I went about a baking spree recently and came up with my own Pumpkin, Chocolate Chip, Pecan Cookies….ummmm ummm delicious!!!

Tips: I would post my own recently discovered Pumpkin, Chocolate Chip, Pecan Cookies, but I’m going to be a little selfish and save this recipe for a future cook book!!!  One tip I have is experiment with gluten free flours.  Changing increments by as little as a 1/4 to 1/2 cup can change cookies from flat to puff ball biscuit like cookies.  It’s all about proportions and ratios of different types of flours.  I also like to substitute applesauce for oil, and honey and agave syrup for sugar!!!
