Dirty Poles #006 – Celestial Cookies

September 19, 2010

NOM NOM NOMWe had a great time at our Celestial City Art and Culture Festival last week. No Fun City was inspiring and all the bands were fantastic. In four short nights we somehow went through 100L of beer courtesy the sweethearts at Picaroon’s.

I made some cookies and brought them to the show on Saturday, and they were such a hit I’m sharing the recipe. Mainly so our pal Marc can give it to his mom. Anyway, here’s how you can live the dream and make your own Celestial Cookies.

1.5 cups butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar

15 oz canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups quick oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt

1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 bag white chocolate chips

1. Cream butter and sugars together. Stir in pumpkin, egg, and vanilla.
2. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt separately. Gradually add this to the pumpkin mixture.
3. Stir in chocolate chips.
4. Form dough into balls about the size of a Timbit. Place them on parchment-lined cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.
5. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes until slightly brown on top. Use a spatula to carefully remove cookies from sheets and cool on wire racks.
6. Pair with Picaroon’s Simeon Jones River Valley Amber Ale if desired and serve to hungry bands. Repeat as necessary.

Variation: substitute vegan-friendly margarine for the butter, and swap out the egg for half a mashed banana if you’re baking for hardcore bands from Ontario.

    If there is one thing I miss about being home in the autumn, it’s pumpkin EVERYTHING. Luckily, I have a can of pumpkin in my cupboard. Perhaps I’ll use it on trying out this recipe. THX! <3
