the great cookie debate

Last week, I posted my chocolate chip pumpkin cookie recipe.  You can see it here.  I thought, they were okay, healthy tasting, but good enough to share.  Well, that evening, Greg popped a few in his mouth and said, “These aren’t that good.”  (Don’t fret, it was said in a nice way, and I actually like it when he tells me something isn’t good — why would I want to spend time and effort to make something that no one likes.)  Anyway, I felt really bad for posting something that was yucky.  Then Taryn came in, grabbed a cookie and said, “These are so good.”  And the great cookie debate began.

We still don’t have a definitive answer on whether or not these are actually good — as of this morning, all five dozen are gone, so they couldn’t have been that bad.  But, I do feel the need to apologize to anyone that made them and thought they weren’t that great.  Sorry to waste your pumpkin and chocolate chips.  To redeem myself, I offer you another pumpkin recipe.  And this is really good — it was universally approved — no bake cheesecake graham cracker sandwiches.

I found the recipe at The Well Floured Kitchen.  I’m in love with this blog.  She is super cool and makes her own graham crackers.  I had some nasty store bought ones left over from making smores with the cub scouts, so I used those.  They were still wonderful, but I’m excited to go totally Martha and make the graham crackers — next time.  But for now, here you go.


No Bake Cheesecake Graham Cracker Sandwiches

1/4 cup pumpkin puree (just pumpkin, not the pie filling stuff)

4 oz. cream cheese softened

2 tablespoons organic sugar

1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or a little more if you like)

graham crackers

Mix the cream cheese and sugar.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix. 

Spread on your graham crackers and make sandwiches — sorry, there’s not much else to say other than if your cream cheese mixture seems a little too soft, put it in the fridge for a bit.

These things are so yummy.  In fact, I need to wrap this up so I can go make some more.  Enjoy.
