A delicious way to eat pumpkin and a family favourite.
The pumpkin puree needs to be as dry as possible, so baking is the best method for cooking the pumpkin. One way is to cut and peel the pumpkin, dry bake it in a foil lined tray and then puree it in a food processor. Or you can leave the skin on, cut the pumpkin into larger pieces, scoop out the seeds and bake wrapped in foil. Scoop the flesh out from the skin when cooked, then puree. If you boil the pumpkin make sure it is well drained, both after cooking and after pureeing. Sweet pumpkin – such as butternut – is best for this type of recipe.
Altered ingredient amounts. I'm American and had to convert ozs to cups. Here were my conversions: Butter - 9 Tbsp., Sugar - 3/4 cup., Eggs - 2, Pumpkin (I used canned) 1 cup., Flour - 2 cups plus 2 Tbsp., Chocolate chips - 1 cup. And the oven temp is 375 F. - 10 Oct 2010
These are like soft cookies, my family REALLY enjoyed them, especially my Mom. They are quick and easy, and I will make them to nibble on while the turkey is cooking. - 10 Oct 2010
