Cooking cookies with pumpkin:

Step 1: Cooking Pumpkin Puree.

If you use canned pumpkin puree, skip this step and start with the second.
Not every store sells ready-made pumpkin puree, but you can make it yourself. We need a small pumpkin and a bright orange color. She has a sweet and fragrant flesh. Cut the pumpkin into two halves, remove the seeds and peel; cut into small pieces.

Fold the pieces of pumpkin into a saucepan, fill with water, bring to a boil and cook over low heat until cooked, about 15-20 minutes.

When the pumpkin is ready, drain the water. To make the boiled pieces mashed, we need a blender. You can also make mashed potatoes in the combine using the nozzle in the form of knives. Grind the pumpkin in mashed potatoes in any way possible for you.

The mashed potatoes need to be boiled up to about half the volume over a small fire, so that a thick mass is obtained, we do not need excess liquid in the test.

Step 2: Cook the dough for the liver with pumpkin.

Remove the butter and eggs from the refrigerator in advance. So that the eggs are warmed to room temperature, and the butter becomes soft. Pound the butter with white sugar, add the eggs and beat in a lush homogeneous mass.

Add pumpkin puree and mix.

Sift the flour into a large bowl and add to it all the dry ingredients: baking powder, ground cinnamon and nutmeg, salt, brown sugar. Stir everything and add to the mass of butter, eggs and sugar. If you use baking soda, then you need to quench it with vinegar in a small bowl (you need very little vinegar for the soda to be completely consumed) and add to all other ingredients.

Knead a uniform dough.

Pour chocolate drops into the dough and mix.

Step 3: Bake pumpkin cookies.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Cover the pastry sheet with baking parchment. Spoon the cookies a short distance from each other and place in the oven to bake. The cookies are small, so it will be ready in just 10-12 minutes. Take care not to get burnt. Lay out the finished liver on a wire rack and leave to cool.

Step 4: Serve cookies with pumpkin.

While the cookies are cooling, brew your favorite fragrant tea and invite everyone to the table. Children really like these cookies with warm milk.
They say that these cookies are not stale for 4 days, but they have never succeeded in checking. Not a single cookie "survived" even to the second.
Enjoy your meal!
