Place the sugar, margarine, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla into a mixing bowl.

Mix well.

Add the pumpkin puree and mix.

Add the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and baking powder.
Mix very well.

Grease and flour a baking tray.

Place large teaspoons of the pumpkin cookie mixture onto the tray.

Bake in a hot oven at gas mark 6 for 8-9 minutes.

Remove the tray from the oven and flatten each cookie with a fork.

Sprinkle each cookie with cinnamon sugar and place back into the oven for no more than 10 minutes.

For a different cookie than the flat pumpkin cookies, spoon the pumpkin cookie mixture onto the oven tray in large teaspoons.

Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or leave plain.

Place into a hot oven at gas mark 6 for 15-20 minutes.

You can bake both styles of pumpkin cookie and see which you prefer, both taste delicious.

You only need to grease and flour the oven trays once, let the tray cool for a few minutes before baking another batch of cookies.

Is their a conversion chart for gas marks to oven temperatures?

Chef Jeena said...

Hi J.Gladfly,

For this recipe: gas mark 6 is the same as 200C or 400F.

I will be publishing a page with conversions and helpful cooking tips very soon.

Thanks, Jeena.

Hey Jenna, I like the idea or having an eggless recipe on hand even if you do eat eggs. These look great and seasonal with the pumpkin. Nice one.
