Weekend Baking

Did a bit of baking yesterday so Tyler and Cara would have something to eat when they came over to play euchre. I had some pumpkin mix leftover from last time I made pumpkin pie, so I defrosted it and used it in:

Chocolate chip cookies: Flour, butter, pumpkin mix, an egg, chocolate chips, vanilla, brown sugar. Mixed together, loosened up with some milk, dropped by the tablespoonful onto a baking sheet and baked for 15 minutes.

Pumpkin bread/cake/thing: Flour, pumpkin mix, egg, raisins, butter, milk, grated ginger, grated lemon rind poured into a pie plate and baked for 45 minutes.

Lemon frosting: lemon juice, grated lemon rind, water and sugar heated gently and poured over the cakey thing.

All three were inspired by online recipes but I deviated significantly.
