    Cappuccino Chip Muffins

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 tbsp baking powder
    1 tbsp instand coffee powder
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1 cup milk
    1 egg
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan. (or you can use the paper cups)

    In a large bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, instant coffee and cinnamon. (If your instant coffee is in big chunky crystals, crush it into a powder before adding so it mixes more easily.)

    In another bowl, beat together the milk, egg adn vegetable oil. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Mix in the chocolate chips. Don't overbeat - just mix everything together and leave it alone.

    Spoon batter into the well-greased (or paper lined) muffin pan, filling the cups to the top. Bake for 18-20 mins or until they pass the toothpick test. Let cool slightly before serving.

    Makes about 8 muffins. (although I got 12)

    Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes

    2lbs cream cheese
    1 2/3 cups sugar (i used organic cane)
    1/4 cup flour (i used brown rice flour)
    1 can of pumpkin pie filling
    4 eggs
    2 tbsp rum (i used rum extract)
    36 ginger cookies (PC english-style ginger fit perfectly)

    Preheat oven to 325 F. Cream together sugar and cream cheese until fluffy, scraping bowl often. Next, add eggs one at a time, making sure to scrape the bowl after each addition. When eggs are fully mixed, add the rum, the pumpking and the flour. Mix well.

    Place cupcake papers in standard cupcake pan and place on cookie in the bottom of each paper. Fill with cheesecake mixture, then bake for 30-40 min until fluffy but not fully set.

    30 min was enough time in my oven.
    they are DELICIOUS!

    Default pumpkin muffins

    I've never had or made pumpkin muffins before, but last night I made these, and omg are they good!! (I read in the comments that you can use store bought pumpkin puree too. But DH and Matthew were craving a pumpkin last night, so I just made the pumpkin puree.)


    Pumpkin Muffins II Recipe - Allrecipes.com

    Ingredients

    1 small sugar pumpkin, seeded
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups white sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    2 teaspoons ground cloves
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
    1 teaspoon ground allspice
    1 teaspoon salt
    2/3 cup vegetable oil
    3 eggs

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
    Split pumpkin in half. Remove seeds and strings. Place on baking sheet, cut side down. Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven until tender, about 90 minutes. Remove pumpkin pulp and puree in blender. Measure out 2 cups pumpkin puree; set aside.
    In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. In a separate bowl, beat together 2 cups pumpkin puree, vegetable oil and eggs. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until smooth. Scoop batter into prepared muffin cups.
    Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

    Default Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup canned pumpkin
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 egg
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon milk
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
    Directions

    1. Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
    2. Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
    3. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 365 degrees F for approximately 12 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

    This recipe says it makes 12 cookies. They must be monster cookies. I tripled the batch as a result and am pushing 10 dozen cookies right now. Maybe more.

    I used applesauce instead of oil and did 2:1 white to whole wheat flour. There were rec's to add a bit of red food colouring to maintain the orange flavour. I tossed in a couple drops and they are orange. I probably wouldn't bother next time since the kids don't care.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but that's way too many chocolate chips. I did 4 cups instead of 6 and it's plenty.

    Next time, (because they are really good) I would def use pumpkin pie spice or at least add nutmeg to the cinnamon. Not spicey enough for me. Very soft, cakey cookies. SO GOOD. Very festive. Girls loved making them with me!

    Default Jalapeno-Cheddar Muffins



    Squash! One more recipe to hide veggies in for the kids (and DH).

    jalapeño-cheddar muffins
    makes about 20 muffins

    ingredients
    3 1/2 cups sifted flour*
    2 tsp double-acting baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking soda
    2 cups lowfat yogurt
    2 eggs, beaten
    3 Tbsp milk or water
    8 oz X-sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    1 small yellow squash, grated
    5 jalapeño peppers, seeded
    1/4 yellow onion
    2 cloves garlic
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    salt and pepper

    First, grate the squash. Then put the onion, garlic and peppers into the food processor and chop them very finely. Saute the onion mixture in a skillet until the onions are starting to become translucent, then add the squash. Salt and pepper lightly, and saute for about 5 minutes until the veggies are tender. Set aside to cool.

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and prepare your muffin tins (you will need two).

    Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda together in a large bowl.
    In another bowl, beat together the yogurt, eggs and milk. Mix about half of the cheese into this bowl. Make a well in the flour and pour in the liquid. Mix with a few swift strokes until the wet and dry ingredients are just barely blended. Scatter the veggie mixture into the flour, and finish blending using as few strokes as possible.

    Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full. Scatter the remaining cheese over the tops of the muffins and then bake for about 20-25 minutes. The cheese will get wonderfully bubbly and just barely start to brown around the edges.


    * Note on flour: I used a blend that was about 1/3 white flour and 2/3 whole wheat pastry flour, but you should use your favorite flour for savory muffins - I think wheat flour works nicely with these flavors.
    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

    Default Soft Pumpkin Cookies

    I found this great recipe for Soft Pumpkin Cookies, they are amazing! not too strong of a pumpkin taste, so if you like a bit more of a pumpkin taste, add a bit more pumpkin. as well, i found their recipe for the icing made quite a bit, I would recommend, cutting it in half.
    Enjoy!

    Ingredients:
    Cookies:
    - 2 1/2 Cups Flour
    - 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
    - 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
    - 2 1/2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
    - 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
    - 1/2 Cup Butter, Softened
    - 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
    - 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
    - 1 Egg
    - 1 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    Icing:
    - 2 Cups Icing Sugar
    - 3-4 Tablespoons Milk
    - 1 Tablespoon Butter, Melted
    - 1 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    Instructions:
    1. Preheat oven to 350F.
    2. Combine cinnamon, salt, flour, baking powder and baking soda in a small bowl. Mix well.
    3. In a medium bowl, cream together sugar and butter. Add egg, vanilla and pumpkin and mix together. Add in dry ingredients. Mix well.
    4. Roll cookies into balls in 1 tablespoonful and add to cookie sheet. Flatten each ball slightly before baking.
    5. Bake for 18 minutes or until the edges are a light brown colour.
    6. Cool completely.
    7. While the cookies are cooling, combine milk, icing sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Add in the milk as needed. If you want the icing to be thicker, you would add less milk.
    8. Drizzle icing onto your cookies and let the, site for about 15 minutes, or until the icing has hardened slightly.
    Makes 30 cookies.

    Default Chewy Peanut Butter cookies

    I just made these and they are by far the best ones I've ever made!! Found here .... http://www.grouprecipes.com/52014/so...r-cookies.html

    Ingredients

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar, firmly packed
    1 1/4 cups White sugar
    1 cup salted butter, softened
    3 large eggs
    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

    How to make it

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    In a medium bowl combine flour, soda and salt.
    Mix well with a wire whisk. Set aside.
    In a large bowl blend sugars using an electric mixer set at medium speed.
    Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping the sides of the bowl.
    Add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla, and mix at medium speed until light and fluffy.
    Add the flour mixture and mix at low speed until just mixed. DO NOT OVERMIX! (In fact, I just use a large wooden spoon.)
    Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, 1 1/2-inches apart.
    With a wet fork gently press a crisscross pattern on top of cookies. In order to keep dough from sticking to the fork as you proceed, dip the fork in water after each cookie is flattened.
    Bake for 19-22 minutes until cookies are slightly brown along the edges.
    Transfer cookies immediately to cool surface with spatula.
    As a variation, add 2 cups coarsly chopped semi-sweet chocolate bar or 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips to the flour mixture, then bake as directed.


    I ended up changing the oven temp to 325 because I'm not at all patient and they seemed to still turn out great! I also dipped the fork in white sugar before criss crossing the cookies.
