Pumpkin recipes

Pumpkins are plentiful in the month of October.  In fact, 80% of the pumpkin supply in the United States is available right now!  A pumpkin is a fruit rich in Vitamin A and potassium.  It is also high in fiber. Pumpkin can be used as an ingredient in many ways. Today, ONIE has three different recipes for you to try: Pumpkin Pie Snap, Pumpkin Peanut Butter Sandwiches, and Pumpkin Gingerbread. Each recipe is super healthy and super delicious!  To make the recipes convenient for you,  we have used canned pumpkin.  It is as healthy as fresh when you choose 100% Pure Pumpkin. Canned pumpkin is also a low-sodium food. A 1/2 cup serving only has 5 mg. of sodium. For me, eating foods made with pumpkin feels perfect for the fall weather. Plus, the smell of pumpkins reminds me that my Dad's favorite holiday, Thanksgiving,  is just around the corner.

Pumpkin Pie Snaps recipe from ONIE


Pumpkin Pie Snaps 



  • 1 can (15 oz) of 100% Pure Pumpkin
  •  Pumpkin cookie recipes
  • 1 (8 oz) light/sugar free cool whip
  • 1 Tbsp. pumpkin spice
  • 1 package of ginger snaps
  • sandwich size plastic bag

Tip: You do not need any special tools to decorate the cookies.  A plastic sandwich bag can be used as the kitchen tool.  It is so easy, cut a whole in the corner of the bag and gently squeeze.  We let the kids in our family decorate the cookies and they have so much fun!
