Cook Eat Delicious!

Pumpkin

When Autumn rolls around, what aroma do you anticipate? Me? Well Pumpkin of course! Whether baked into a dessert or creatively cooked into a savory dish, pumpkin is a wonderful fruit for anytime of the year. Pumpkin pie is my ultimate favorite although I can eat a whole pumpkin bread loaf by myself! I have eaten a Thai pumpkin soup before, it was so rich and full of Thai spices. But pumpkin was the star of that soup and it was delicious! I hope to cook it one day. Check out the following Pumpkin Recipes for ideas.

White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

I was a bit apprehensive to make these cookies. I love anything pumpkin but never have had pumpkin cookies. But there are those cravings for pumpkin that sneak up on me so suddenly, I only have time to bake cookies. I happened to have a bag of white chocolate chips on hand and thought, “Why not?”

Delicious Rating: “Why Yes!” is exactly what I said after eating the first cookie, okay, actually after eating spoons of the cookie dough. These are a hit and delicious. Firm and yet soft, almost like a perfect pumpkin muffin soft but with a crunchy cookie bottom. The white chocolate chips balance so perfectly with the pumpkin in this easy recipe, not over nor underwhelming at all. Next time I want to try chocolate chocolate chips, what do you think?

Oatmeal Pumpkin Muffins

I think muffins are great. I love them for breakfast when I am on the go. They can’t be dry though because I usually don’t have something to drink when I am eating on the go. This easy recipe for muffins is great for on the go moist muffins. They are pumpkin with spice and something else very nice…Oatmeal! Oatmeal is my new baking secret ingredient. It makes everything super moist without an overpowering oatmeal taste. Most of the times nobody can even taste oatmeal at all, including myself!

Delicious Rating: Love, love, love these muffins. They are not too sweet but not that bland type of muffin either. The spices with the pumpkin are right on. I love it all! I make regular size muffins to freeze and mini muffins to just eat every time I walk by the kitchen. Ha! Try this recipe and let me know how it works out for you!

Pumpkin Cheesecake

The last three months of the year always bring about a weird sense of urgency in me. If I don’t get to a Cheesecake Factory to buy a slice of pumpkin cheesecake I feel that the year was a waste! This Year it wasn’t happening so I took things into my own hands…I decided to bake my own Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Delicious Rating: Easy recipe to make as long as you follow the directions. Don’t rush the softening of the cream cheese either. Unfortunately, I didn’t care for it. The spices were overpowering the pumpkin and the crust had a ‘wet’ texture to it that I didn’t like. My DH thought it was too sweet but a friend of mine who tried it went back for seconds so it really depends on your palate. I doubt I will ever make this cheesecake again. I will just have to make sure I get to the States next year sometime during October-December to get the Pumpkin Cheesecake I dream of…

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

Pumpkin is one of my favorite desserts. Pie, Bread, Cheesecake, or cookies, nothing beats pumpkin. Spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger fill the air with such warm pleasantness, it is hard to want anything else! I had a couple of cans of pumpkin pie mix sitting around so I decided to bake up some muffins and a loaf of bread.

Delicious Rating: This is a simple baking easy recipe, really requiring no skills at all! Add the ingredients together, mix, pour, bake, and voila! Your done! The bread & muffins turned out wickedly moist & full of spice & deliciousness. Spreading some cinnamon butter on a warm slice is too good to describe. I definitely will bake these again. I individually wrapped the muffins tightly in saran wrap once they were completely cooled and threw them in the freezer. They thaw perfectly or nuke one muffin in the microwave for 20-30 seconds to have a warm muffin with your morning tea.
