    Recipe Introduction

    These sound weird, but, boy are they good. To double a batch, you'll need 2 cans of the pumpkin.

    List of Ingredients

    • 1 (15oz) can pumpkin
    • 1 tsp baking soda (sprinkled over pumpkin in bowl)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup Crisco
    • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp cloves
    • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 pkg semi sweet chocolate chips


    1. Put the pumpkin in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle baking soda over pulp. Dump in sugar, Crisco and butter. Beat until creamy.
    2. Beat the 1 egg and add it to the mixture, stirring well.
    3. Blend in 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp salt. Mix well.
    4. Add flour and mix well. Then, lastly, add the chocolate chips. Nuts, if desired.
