I have made the 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies several times but do you think if I used canned pumpkin instead of peanut butter it would work?? :blink:

Oh, yum... I've never even thought of that. What a great idea! Make sure you add spices like ginger, allspice, and cinnamon, otherwise it might not taste like you're imagining it will. I might have to try this tonight.

That sounds good. Let us know if it works. I can't remember the three ingredient measurements, but I think they are peanut butter, sugar and egg.

I'm excited!! Tomorrow, I'm trying the pumpkin version. I can't do legumes anymore, but I did make the peanut butter cookies and really liked them. I was at the store today, and bought a can of pumpkin, so I'm all set.

I'm thinking I'll use pumpkin pie spice as the seasoning.

Angie, definately let us know if you try them tonight!

Bully, the original recipe is:

1 cup sugar

1 cup smooth peanut butter

1 egg

Mix together, roll into 1 inch balls and flatten with fork. Bake in preheated 350 oven for about 8 minutes.

I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract. :)

I don't think pumpkin would work, because it doesn't have the fat and protein that nut butters have, but maybe a different kind of nut butter would work ... But maybe you could just try it and consider any 'flops' an experiment. :blink:

Yeah, I don't think pumpkin would work - no fat or protein to hold the cookies from crumbling. You'd need something else - be it egg, gum, oil... Not to mention they would be *very* dense. It's a good idea, but needs a little more than three ingredients. :)
