It time for fall and holiday baking. Nothing makes the house smell better, feel warmer, and seem more inviting. This is a great recipe to use your canned , homegrown, or jack-o-lantern flesh. These turn out soft and delicious. For those of you that enjoy the flavor of nutmeg, you may add 1/8 tsp. to the recipe. This recipe certainly doesn't need it though. In fact, I prefer the cookies without it. Don't be afraid to try the Splenda Sugar Blend. It is significantly cheaper than Splenda alone and you can't even tell that you didn't use all that real sugar. No, seriously. If you don't believe me you can substitute the Splenda Sugar Blend with 1/2 cup of sugar. You're going to love these cookies. If you have kids, or a sweet tooth like myself, you could also toss in some chocolate chips. I haven't tried it yet, but I think it would taste great.
