Pumpkin drive

Surprisingly, we did not buy a pumpkin at Desert Hills Ranch in Ashcroft, (even though they were everywhere,dotting the hills, every surface, even the walkway to the market, pumpkins evenly spaced like an obstacle course) but we loaded the van with apples, winter onions, sweet peppers, and yellow potatoes.

But at Horsting's Farm in Cache Creek they had the little 'schoolhouse pumpkins' so we brought one of those home to make our traditional pumpkin cookies.

we bought those little pie pumpkins too; they make great pies.
I just have to figure out how to remove the skins without killing myself doing it one handed.

I'm sure your cookies turned out great.

No need to peel the pumpkins; just cut them in half, remove all the seeds and roast until done. Then just scoop out and use in your favourite recipe.
