S.M.A.R.T. Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles by Karen Wilson

Yields approximately 40 cookies

Ingredients:

o    1/2 cup butter, softened

o    3/4 cup granulated sugar

o    1/3 cup pumpkin puree

o    1 large egg

o    1 tsp vanilla

o    2 cup Pete’s GF S.M.A.R.T. mix          

o    1 tsp xanthan gum

o    1 tsp baking powder

o    pinch salt  

o    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice                                               

o    Rolling sugar:¼  cup granulated sugar½ tsp pumpkin pie spice

1. In a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and 3/4 cup granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla and beat until well mixed, scrape down the bowl and mix again.

2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon.

3. With the mixer running on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined. Chill dough for 1 hour.

4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.

5. In a small bowl, stir together the 1/2 cup granulated sugar and the pumpkin pie spice.

6. Scoop dough into 1-inch balls (I use my small cookie scoop for this) and roll dough in the sugar/pumpkin pie mixture. Place cookies on prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2-inches between cookies, leaving room for the cookies to spread. Lightly press down on the tops of the cookies with the bottom of a drinking glass.

7. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-14 minutes, or until the cookies are just starting to get lightly brown.

8.    Allow to cool on the pan for 5 minutes, before transferring to a cooling rack. Store in airtight containers once they are fully cooled.

Roll out on bakers paper with tapioca under and over the dough.  If the dough is too sticky, roll in more tapioca flour.

Roll out to ¼ inch thick, dip cookie cutters in tapioca flour repeatedly.(The tapioca flour disappears during the baking)

 Bake at 350degrees 12 minutes on bakers paper.

Cool and decorate.

( The cookies may seem a bit crunchy at first but after storing for a couple days they become more chewy and very yummy.)

P.S. Stop in at Pete's for some silicon parchment paper for home use

S.M.A.R.T. Pumpkin Doughnuts by Therese Kirchner

 Yield 12 baked doughnuts 

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3 large eggs

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar*

1 cups pumpkin purée

3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 TBSP baking powder

2 cups SMART Flour by Pete's Gluten Free

Sugar coating:

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 TBSP cinnamon (or pumpkin pie spice if you prefer)

Directions Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two standard doughnut pans.

Beat together the oil, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, spices, and salt.

Mix flour and baking powder together, then add to wet ingredients, mixing until batter is smooth.

Fill the wells of the doughnut pans about 3/4 full; use a scant 1/4 cup of batter in each well.

Bake the doughnuts for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of one comes out clean.

(Note: There's a lot of batter... you might be able to get 18 donuts if you have enough donut pans)

Remove the doughnuts from the oven, and after about 5 minutes, loosen their edges, and transfer them to a rack to cool. While the doughnuts are still warm (but no longer fragile), gently shake them in a bag with the sugar coating. Cool completely on a baking rack. Donuts may be stored in a plastic container.

These donuts are also delicious with a chocolate ganache or chocolate buttercream frosting.
