This is a very old recipe. Libbie says to sieve the pumpkin. I just used canned pumpkin and a lot of spice and lemon extract.
- Cream shortening and brown sugar.
- Add pumpkin and beaten eggs.
- Sift flour, baking powder, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon together; add to creamed mixture.
- Add nuts, vanilla extract, and lemon extract.
