Halloween is Almost Here

I don’t know about you guys, but I absolutely adore Halloween! Here in Atlanta, the weather is starting to cool down and the leaves are turning. Fall is such a great time of year.

In preparation for Halloween, I went and gathered my Halloween costume yesterday. I plan on being a disgustingly ugly witch. Yes, large mole on my nose and all! What will you dress up as for Halloween? Here’s a delicious Fall recipe, courtesy of that’s perfect for Halloween. And, it’s only got 121 calories per serving. Enjoy!


Yield: 24 servings
1 package Active dry yeast
1 cups Warm water (110 F)
1/3 cups Honey
2 tablespoon Margarine
1 teaspoon Salt
½ cups Nonfat dry milk
1 cups Canned pumpkin
About 1.5 tb pumpkin spice
1½ teaspoon Cinnamon
¾ teaspoon Cloves
¾ teaspoon Nutmeg
¾ teaspoon Ginger
2½ cups To 3 cups all purpose flour
1½ cups To 2 cups whole wheat flour
Nonstick vegetable spray

1. In a large bowl or food processor, dissolve yeast in water. Add honey, margarine, salt, dry milk, pumpkin, spices. Beat well to blend, then gradually beat in about 4 cups of the combined flours to make a stiff dough.

2. Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead until smooth about 15 to 20 min, adding flour as needed to prevent sticking.

3. Turn dough over in a bowl coated with nonstick spray, cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (1½ - 2 hours) Punch down dough, knead briefly on a lightly floured board to release air.

4. Divide dough into 24 equal pieces. Shape each into a smooth ball and place balls in 2 greased 9-inch round baking pans coated with nonstick spray. Cover and let rise until almost double.

5. Bake in a preheated 375 F oven for 25 minutes or until browned. Cool on racks.
