    Does anyone have a recipe for pumpkin custard, no pie shell needed? My elementary school used to serve this as a dessert when I was a child (60 years ago), and I loved it1 Thanks

    I made the chocolate chip cookies tonight and they’re so good! I’ve made other pumpkin cookies in the past and didn’t like how they were thick and sticky but these taste just like a cookie. The texture is perfect. I thought the pumpkin taste was very mild for those who don’t like a strong taste.

    Pumpkin rolls are so delicious and so easy to make. They look as if they would be difficult to make, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. My teens are able to make them on their own- that’s how easy it is. I use Libby’s Pumpkin Roll recipe that is normally on the label of the can of pureed pumpkin.

    Can you make the “print” link easier on the pull apart pumpkin spice loaf. I keep trying to print from your page and it jut keeps loading, won’t print. Also, it’s showing as 5 pages?? I would like a printer friendly link without all the pictures. Thanks.

      • Maria G

        Yes, that worked for only 2 pages. Thanks.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We’d love to, but this is a list of all the recipes we have in individual posts. You’ll have to click each one and add it to your cookbook that way, tipaye.
