Oh, how I LOVE FALL! Time to cook chilis and stews, time to bake and EAT! LOL I made my first batch of cookies yesterday in our new oven, BUT I didn't cook them long enough. The kids loved them and I *heart* raw cookie dough so they were fine. :o) I was so nervous using my new convection oven that I was afraid of burning them.
Here is another recipe I think I'll try this weekend.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

2 1/2 cups of pure cane sugar
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2/3 cup water
2 whole eggs
2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup miniature semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 9X5 loaf pans.

In a large bowl, combine sugar, pumpkin, oil, water and eggs. Beat until smooth. Blend in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Fold in Chocolate Chips. Fill pans 1/2 full.

Bake for 50 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. Cool on wire racks before removing from pans.
