Fall has finally started to happen around here.

You know the cool nights that are perfect for wearing layers, that big comfy sweater that you are dying to pull out of the stack of fall clothes, and the leaves on the trees just have a suggestion of what they will be showing us in a just a few short weeks.

With the cooler weather I have started to move my house plants that I place on the back patio during the summer back into the house.

This is a bit stressful on my poor houseplants.

They are used to all that glorious fresh air, the sunshine, raindrops, and occasionally a spray from the garden house.  So coming into the stuffy, dry and not so sunny house can be a shocker for their little green systems.

I try to do it gradually for some.  The pots that have been in full sun, move to the shade, before taking the plunge straight into the house.  However, the select few that are not sun worshippers and have spent their summer days in the shade I bring directly into the Mi Casa.

These are typically orchids.  Yes, I collect orchids, I don’t toss them out when they drop their flowers, but continue to care for them when they are nothing more than a few leaves, craggy roots and old brown stems.  I have a hard time tossing a healthy plant, which may explain why I have too many.

So the orchids were moved from the patio into my sun room yesterday.  This room is a bit cooler, sunnier and a bit of a compromise for my plants.  I keep telling them why the need to live.

I can only hope that they are listening.

Don’t worry I haven’t been spending too much time talking to the old plants.  I have in fact been making pumpkin, after pumpkin, after pumpkin spice recipe.

I think we have established here on A Healthy Life For Me, that you can never, in fact, have too much pumpkin.

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Servings: -18

Equipment

  • Baking Sheet

Ingredients

  • 2 cup +1/4 cup gluten free baking flour
  • 11/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 salt
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 stick 8 oz unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar lightly packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree {not pumpkin pie filling}
  • 2/3 cup confectioners sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment
  • In a large bowl mix the flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, cinnamon and ginger together using a fork until blended. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and brown sugar, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Add the pumpkin puree and mix further.
  • Slowly add the flour and spice mixture and continue to mix on a slow speed.
  • Once thoroughly mixed, cover the bowl with food wrap and pop in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, just enough time to allow the dough to firm up.
  • Place the confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. With a large ice cream scoop {about 2” diameter scoop}, scoop the batter and drop the batter into the confectioner's sugar and coat completely.
  • Place on the baking sheet and when all cookies have been coated, repeat coating cookies a second time with confectioners sugar.
  • Place cookies evenly on baking sheets and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  • If you are cooking both cookie sheets in the same oven at the same time, rotate the sheets halfway through the bake.
  • Remove from oven and allow the cookies to cool a little on a tray before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
  • Serve. Store in an airtight container in a refrigerator for 5-6 days.

  1. I just made these but with traditional, not gluten free flour. The dough was very sticky-even after putting in the freezer for the recommended time. Out of the oven they look more like a soft, cake like cookie-but not a crinkle. They taste good but they don’t look like yours.
