We have a very busy holiday week coming up quickly in this house, so my goal this week is to get some baking done and put away everyday. Yesterday the focus was the can of pumpkin puree. I made a pumpkin roll (in the freezer) some whole wheat pumpkin bars (a little bland, but salvageable with a little bit of leftover pumpkin roll filling on top - also in the freezer) and some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins. Those were so good, they never did make it to the freezer. Oops.
I used this recipe, but with a few of the suggestions that were listed in the comments. I used one cup of the pumpkin puree, light brown sugar instead of white, 1 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of nutmeg, and I didn't have any ground cloves on hand so I added just over a 1/4 tsp of cardamom.
They were really really good and the kids were wishing I had made more than 12.
