  • pumpkin puree - 3/4 cup
  • sugar - 1 cup
  • oil - 1/2 cup
  • walnuts - 3/4 cups, coarsely ground
  • baking soda - 1 tsp
  • apple cider vinegar - 1 tsp
  • cinnamon - 1 tsp
  • flour - 2 1/2 cups
  • for sprinkling
  • sugar - 1 tbsp
  • cinnamon - 1 tsp
  • walnuts - 25, chopped into halves


Put the puree in a bowl. Add the sugar and beat. Add the oil and the baking soda, dissolved in the vinegar.

Sift the flour, add it to the pumpkin mixture, beating with a mixer at first, then with a whisk. Add the walnuts and cinnamon. Stir well with a spatula.

Lay out a tray with baking paper. Shape balls with moist hands and arrange them in it, with space in between them.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Sprinkle the cookies with it, place 1/2 a walnut onto each. Bake in a preheated 356°F (180 °C) oven about 15-17 min. Take them out and arrange onto a cooking grid to cool.

The number of cookies depends on the size of the balls you make. I made 25 medium-sized cookies to bake them all at once - you can make even smaller ones.

They're uniquely delicious, perfect for the Nativity Fast or Christmas Eve, for whenever you want to eat something sweet but a little different than the traditional pumpkin pie and stuffed pumpkin.
