  • Stir the flour into the cooled pumpkin mixture to form a dough. Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to the dough; allow to rest 5 minutes. Roll the dough into 12 even-sized balls and flatten to about 2-inches in diameter.

  • Heat the remaining vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-hot heat. Fry the dough in the hot oil until lightly brown on each side. Drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

I used fresh pumpkin which I had pureed and left everything else the same. These were delicious! They turned out warm and chewy with an almost caramel taste to them. Absolutely perfect with hot tea or coffee on a wintry afternoon. I will be making these again. Read More

I made this one with my husband and we followed the recipe exactly. I wasn't fond of the wheat flour dominating the after taste. I don't think I will be making this again. It was OK. Thanks for the recipe I really did enjoy trying it. Read More

I made this using all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat. I also added some pumpkin pie spice. They were pretty good but I think they could use some more flavor. Maybe some more pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. Read More

I tried these but my family really didn't care for them it may have been the wheat flour we have never used it but they just didn't appeal to us. Read More
