• Sunday Dessert
  • we triple this recipe to have lots of leftovers - these cookies get more 'cakey' in the cpl days after baking - esp if you store in the refrigerator.
  • 2 1/2 cups 'bob's red mills' all purpose flour (bean based) available at most health food stores and many grocery stores
  • 1 teaspoon 'hain's' corn-free baking powder available at most health food stores
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon real salt available at health food stores

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup 'libby's' or other corn and allergen free 10% pure pumpkin puree, available at grocery and health food stores
  • 1/3 cup 'just apples' brand corn-free applesauce or 'eden organics' strawberry applesauce - available at whole foods. if you can't find it, just throw a cpl apples in your blender and make your own -this is what i always use to replace eggs in baking
  • 1 teaspoon corn free vanilla extract (home made, 'rose & ivy' brand or just leave out if you don't have these available, you won't miss it !)
