Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are my Enthusiastic Kitchen Elf's favorite cookies. So, it was easy to get him to help me make them. You can use your favorite snickerdoodle recipe; the only tweak we really made: reduce the butter as you're adding moisture with the pumpkin puree. You can read more about Eggland's Best in my first post for the week: The Great Pumpkin Cocktail. The second time I went to the store with my product coupons, I found brown eggs. Love it!


Ingredients

  • 7 T softened butter
  • 1 C organic granulated sugar + 4 T for rolling (prefer Dixie Crystals)
  • 1 egg (prefer Eggland's Best)
  • 2 T pumpkin purée (click on my Fall-Flecked Stuffed Grape Leaves for the purée recipe)
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon + 2 T for rolling
  • 1/4 t ground cardamom
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 3 C flour
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • Also needed: baking sheet, silicone mat or parchment paper, scoop 


Procedure
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, blend together 4 T sugar and 2 T ground cinnamon for rolling.

In a small mixing bowl, blend together flour, baking soda, baking powder, 1/2 t ground cinnamon, 1/4 t ground cardamom, and 1/4 t ground nutmeg. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until lightened and fluffy. Beat in egg, pumpkin puree, and pure vanilla.


Gradually blend in the flour mixture until you have a smooth dough. Here you can use a scoop which is much easier...or you can roll walnut-sized balls with your hands. Place the dough balls in the cinnamon mixture and roll to coat completely.

Place onto prepared cookie sheets. 

Bake for 10 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven - or until golden. If you prefer more crunchy cookies, bake for a minute or two longer. Let cool for a few minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
