How you make Tillie’s Pumpkin Pie Cookies …

Make a Pumpkin Puree …

  1. Cut the pumpkin (or squash) in half and remove the seeds.
  2. Then cut the halfs in half to make quarters and then half the quarters so you have eight equal sized pieces of pumpkin. What a lot of dicking about. Just cut the pumpkin into 8 equal sized pieces. Tfff.
  3. Place the pumpkin pieces on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  4. Bake the pumpkin in the oven at 170 degrees c until the pumpkin is soft – about 40 minutes.
  5. Leave the pumpkin to cool then remove the soft flesh from the skin.
  6. Place the pumpkin flesh in a bowl and mash it or blitz with a hand blender until it becomes a yummy puree.
  7. If you can’t be bothered to make your own pumpkin puree and want to be lazy, just cheat and buy a can of pumpkin puree.

You will probably have more pumpkin puree that you need for this cookie recipe. Put the rest in a tub and pop it in the fridge ready to use it in another pumkpin recipe. Or just eat it!

Pumpkin is yummy and very good for you … pumpkin is great for our digestive health. Itโ€™s a rich source of fiber and can help keep us regular, you know, as well as being a great source of beta carotene. How good is that! Pumpkin. Yummy and healthy.
