Emily LOVES Pumpkin Gobs and they are so delicious I really thought she would say that was her favorite part of lunch today, but to my surprise the Fruit Kabobs won!! 

Here is the delicious and easy recipe for the Pumpkin Gobs away:

Pumpkin Gobs


2 egg yolks
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup oil
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 large can of canned pumpkin (the one I used was 29 ounces)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1½ cups butter (softened)
2 tablespoons milk
4 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons vanilla extract
4 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

1.    Preheat oven to 350°
2.    Cream together egg yolks, brown sugar and oil
3.    Combine the flour, ground cloves, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and baking soda and add to the egg, sugar and oil mixture.
4.    Add canned pumpkin and vanilla extract to the batter.
5.    Drop by teaspoonfuls (not to big) onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 12-14 minutes.  Cool on wire racks before filling.
6.    Beat all of the ingredients for the filling together until fluffy.
7.    Once cookies are cooled spread some of the filling on the bottom of one cookie and cover it with another one to make a sandwich.   ENJOY!!!!

Mmm, the pumpkin gobs sound amazing! My husband and I love pumpkin-flavored things so I will definitely have to try this!

And, I'm super jealous that Emily will eat soup. Maddie wants nothing to do with it, even though I eat it often.

Love the tin!
