Pumpkin Pie Chocolate Chip Lazy Man Cookies

The used grocery store where I shop is getting thin in its inventory.  Probably makes sense.  I have been shopping there for ten years now, and the shelves are well stocked during the go-go times and get sparse during the times when things are heading south.

The big stores are a reflection of what the economy/society is thinking.  In the Martha Stewart salad days of the last ten years, the big store would buy crap so that they could fool the unwashed masses into thinking that they could buy “living large”.  Lots of extra crap on the shelves, lots of odd yuppie food to spice up the palate.   Lots of this stuff didn't sell,  so off to the liquidator stores where I could buy good eats at a fraction of the cost.
Now the big stores are looking hard at their inventory and their stocking practices. Have you noticed the decrease in stuff on the shelf lately, have you noticed the rise in prices. The inventory is getting squeezed and the liquidator stores are having trouble getting their stuff.

The only good deal this week was pumpkin.


Mix together
  • 1 can (16 oz) canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 egg

Mix in a separate bowl
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ½ teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix the two bowls together, then add
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Spread the mess out onto a big cookies sheet and bake at 350(F) for around 35-40 minutes

Used grocery store?

Is the food pre-digested?
