Suzanne hosts a Vintage Thingies Thursday and I decided to participate. It’s been a lot of fun, visiting other sites that are showcasing vintage things. Funny, that. We used to call it antique but, apparently, now the name has morphed into vintage. At any rate, I see my house belongings in so many of these vintage posts. I suppose that what’s happens when you’ve been housekeeping for as long as I have -smile-. I hope I remember to do this again next week, participate in VTT; it’s been fun, talking about our stove and doing a bit of research. Perhaps next week I’ll talk about my Romanian fiber and textile artifacts.
Right now, I need to post this so I can bake some Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares for Quilting Bee tonight. I’ve been a slackard today; time to get something useful accomplished! In the meantime, here’s the recipe for the Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares. I wish I could remember where I found these but, at any rate, I’ve changed the recipe just a tad so, perhaps, the original author wouldn’t want to be referenced anyway.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Squares
2 1/4 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups pumpkin or 15 ounce can
1 cup chocolate chips plus another cup for frosting
Butter or spray a 13×9 inch baking dish and preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugars.
Add eggs, stir.
Add pumpkin, stir.
Mix together dry ingredients and add to pumpkin mixture; blend.
Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
Pour into pan and bake for 45 minutes, more of less, depending upon your oven.
Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over baked goods, let melt and then spread as frosting.
P. S. If you’re looking for the book give-away, Gift From The Sea, it’s in the post prior to this one.
Until next time,
