Halloween Recipes

Fall is such a great time of year and October is when I usually start thinking about all the great Halloween recipes I can make!

These are a few of my favorites, so try them and let me know what you think!

Pumpkin Muffins


2 medium eggs 3 cups flour 1 cup brown sugar 1 cup milk 1 cup pureed cooked pumpkin ½ cup unsweetened applesauce (for yummy moist muffins.) 2 tablespoons white sugar 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice ¼ teaspoon cloves ¼ teaspoon allspice ¼ teaspoon ginger

Directions: Preheat oven to 325°F.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; mix until smooth.

Fill sprayed muffin tins with mixture until ¾ full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in a muffin comes out clean

Pumpkin Cake Roll


3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup white sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1 cup pumpkin puree 3 eggs 1 teaspoon lemon juice 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1/4 cup butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup confectioners' sugar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch jelly roll pan or cookie sheet.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in pumpkin puree, eggs, and lemon juice. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spread the mixture evenly.

Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 15 minutes.

Lay a damp linen towel on the counter, sprinkle it with confectioner's sugar, and turn the cake onto the towel.

Carefully roll the towel up (lengthwise) with the cake in it. Place the cake-in-towel on a cooling rack and let it cool for 20 minutes.

Make the icing: In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and sugar with a wooden spoon or electric mixer.

When the cake has cooled 20 minutes, unroll it and spread icing onto it. Immediately re-roll (not in the towel this time), and wrap it with plastic wrap. Keep the cake refrigerated or freeze it for up to 2 weeks in aluminum foil. Cut the cake in slices just before serving.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 cup canned pumpkin 1 cup white sugar 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 egg 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon milk 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.

Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.

Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups white sugar 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 cup canned pumpkin puree 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 cups peeled, cored and chopped apple 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/4 cup white sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 4 teaspoons butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease 18 muffin cups or use paper liners.

In a large bowl, sift together 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 cups sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, pumpkin and oil. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture; stirring just to moisten. Fold in apples. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons flour, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over muffin batter.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean.
