I tend to overbuy pantry items when they go on sale. From pasta to beans I have quite a selection. I just never know what I will need to have on hand and I like to be prepared 🙂
Last December there was quite a shortage of canned pumpkin around here. It seemed like every lady I worked with was talking about it. Who had small cans, where did they get them. It’s crazy what gets people worked up. It was like the world was coming to an end because they couldn’t find Libby’s 14.75 ounce cans of pumpkin puree.
So I , being the planner that I am, bought 20 cans one day. I came across a new shipment at our local grocery store and I thought I should grab a few cans for my Mom. Little did I know that she had the same idea. Long story short: I have been making a lot of pumpkin recipes in the last few months.
When I open a new can of pumpkin, I rarely use it all, so I freeze the leftovers. I don’t want to waste any, right? Pumpkin pancakes, french toast and pumpkin stew are a few of the lucky items to be made using this prized squash in a can. And of course, what is pumpkin season without making at least one batch of pumpkin cookies?!
One perfect pumpkin recipe for fall baking is pumpkin monster cookies.
Monster cookies are oatmeal-based, chewy, and the cookies have lots of tasty ingredients stuffed inside. My friend and social media manager, Becca, has a great recipe for monster cookies on her site. Wait until you see what she stuffed inside of her cookies!
A great thing about this monster cookies recipe is that it’s easy to adjust to your own tastes. You can mix in chopped walnuts or pecans, or swap out the dried cranberries, using raisins instead. Because my son is allergic, I opt out of using nuts.. For more perfect pumpkin recipes, check out the pumpkin monster cookies recipe, then scroll down!
