So the title tells it all. This recipe I adapted against the one I normally use, which uses All-Purpose Flour. My in-laws live in the south, they use more Self-Rising Flour than they do All-Purpose. The difference is (this is if you don’t bake and have no idea the difference…FYI) Self Rising flour has baking powder (a leavening agent), and salt added to it before packaging. All-Purpose Flour does not. A recipe that calls for All Purpose should have a leavening agent such as Baking Powder,or Baking Soda. I am saying should…there are other types of leaven-er and depending on what recipe you are using, it may call for some other ingredient.
So I adapted this specifically for my Mother-in-Law Teresa. apparently they really hadn’t eaten Pumpkin cookies until I introduced them to it last year. She has been asking me to give her the recipe and make her some. After looking at my recipe, I realized I should see if I could work a recipe with self rising flour instead of the all-purpose.
Drop by teaspoonfulls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 Degrees Fahrenheit. 15 minutes.
Add Chocolate Chips, Nuts, Raisins ETC (Optional) I recommend the chocolate chips.
Very Simple, No need for a mixer, this can all be done by hand, and very quickly.
A Baking scoop from pampered chef comes in real handy for cookies like this. Mine Broke. (reminds me I need to order a new one)
Transfer to wire rack, shortly after pulling from the oven. Keep them in a ziplock, or sealed container to maintain freshness.
Tell me how this recipe works out for you. When I get back to Germany, I will post the other recipe using All-Purpose flour for those who would prefer that method.
