This weeks "In the cookie jar" is a recipe I got years ago when I first began blogging from a friend who was on HSB with me. I have been making these ever since and they are so good.
2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 2 eggs 1/4 cup milk 1/4 cup shortening or 1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine, softened
Directions: 1 FOR DOUGHNUTS: In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda. Add pumpkin, eggs, milk, and shortening, butter, or margarine; beat with an electric mixer on low speed till mixed. 2 Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip with a 1/2 inch opening. Pipe onto 2 greased baking sheets in 3-inch circles. Bake in a preheated 375* oven for 10 minutes, or till golden brown. Cool doughnuts on a rack over waxed paper.
