Wow, they are so colorful. They look delicious and not like your regular cookies. You would be a hit at my church...cookies are served every Sunday. I've heard that crinkle cookies are hard to get right. Did you find them easy or hard?

IMO, those blueberry cookies look kind of alien, but the lemon and lime cookies actually look refreshing, if that's possible in a cookie.

Same, but the blueberries might appeal to kids in the group. Although maybe one bite would convince me, an adult, that they were delicious for me, too. After all, blueberries are my favorite addition to pancakes and donuts and things like that.

What are they like, Chuck?

The blueberry cookies don't have any coloring added to them, that's how they look once you add the pureed blueberries to the mix.

I gave some cookies to some friends, and my family, they all liked the blueberry ones.  They are more of a cakey cookie, rather than a crunchy one.

However, the lime cookies so far have been the overwhelming favorite.

I'm taking the rest to work tomorrow, we'll see what people say.

On this evening's agenda: pumpkin pies! One with walnuts, one without.  :)

Do you use canned pumpkin, or do you cook your own?

I didn't grow any this year...the spring was too cold for them to germinate. So, it was Libby's.

It's a good thing I always bake two at a time. When I was taking one out of the oven, the foil pie dish buckled and the crust broke apart. I took the other one out veeeerrrryyy carefully. The first pie has been turned into pumpkin crumble to be fed to my grandchildren. Further disguised with lots of whipped cream on top.

My mother always cooked her own. I remember her cutting it in chunks, and at some point in the process mashing the pumpkin with a potato masher.

She also used glass pie plates. I don't remember what size, but they were probably nine inches. She always had more than enough pumpkin to fill the pie plate, so she would bake the rest in what I guess were custard dishes.

Whipped cream is good on pumpkin pie, crumbled or not.  :D
