It sounds like the chips are flavored with pumpkin spice.

Pumpkin spice is the same mix of spices you would use to make pumpkin pie - it's just pre-mixed. Waste of cupboard space, imo.

The ingredients are pretty basic; flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger sugar, butter, Libby's 100% pure pumpkin, molasses, egg, vanilla and the chips. Hope this helps. It also says to line the cookie sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease them.

I make pumpkin bread with cranberries every year for the church fair. So I always have a container of pumpkin pie spice. And I keep a small jar of molasses on hand.

I do like to roast my own pumpkin. Right after Halloween, the prices of pumpkins drops drastically. So I pick up three or four of them and then freeze it. Right now I have about the equivalent of two cans in the freezer. If not, the church always has cans on hand that folks have donated. They aren't bakers, I guess.

You said you *didn't* have pumpkin pie spice.

All set. Have all the ingredients except for ginger sugar. Found the recipe. I will purchase a hand of fresh ginger when I go shopping. Hopefully I can find one with small fingers.

I wasn't sure if pumpkin spice was the same thing as pumpkin pie spice. Do I have enough? Will have to check supply. If not on the list it goes.

I hope you haven't left yet. It should be "ginger comma sugar," meaning ginger AND sugar,not "ginger sugar."

You are right, I forgot the comma between ginger and sugar. Sorry. Jo

No I haven't. Shopping will be on Saturday. I have ground ginger and plenty of sugar. Thank you for sending the recipe. Copied and saved.

The recipe is very easy. Have all the ingredients on hand. Thank you very much!
