Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Spiced Glaze

Our dear friends have hosted many Muggle Quidditch games on their property.  They are moving soon 🙁 , so last night was the last game.  I usually help run the “Three Broomsticks” where we have all kind of treats from butterbeer, licorice wands, chocolate turtles, every flavor beans, popcorn, etc.  I decided to make pumpkin cookies to add to the offerings.  I love the flavor of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but not the texture.  They are usually to cakey for me.  So I decided to add oatmeal to the mix and see what happened.  The results are wonderful!  I made 9 dozen cookies they are all gone now.  The teenagers LOVED them!  I had originally thought to make a chocolate glaze, but decided to go with a spiced glaze.  These are a new family favorite!

These were tasty little chocolate bites. They are made with pumpkin in place of the oil. The overall taste is chocolate goodness. Continue reading »

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

These are so good. They are moist, tasty and freeze really well. This recipe makes about 3 dozen muffins. I like to make them for the kid’s lunches. After they have cooled, I individually wrap them with saran wrap, put them in a gallon size zip lock and then freeze them. I pull them out in the morning and they thaw out perfectly by lunchtime. This recipe is adapted from my friend Anne’s recipe who got it from her friend Karen. Continue reading »
