I made all these for Thanksgiving this year and would make them again:GF Pumpkin Shortbread Ingredients1 1/4 c Better Batter All-Purpose Gluten-Free flour*1/2 c cornstarch*1 tsp cinnamondash cloves (don't overdo the cloves!)dash nutmeg1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or just slightly increase the other spices)1/2 tsp salt1 1/2 sticks butter, softened2/3 c powdered sugar1/3 c canned pumpkin coarse sugarDirectionsPreheat oven to 300° F. (yes 300---not 350) Line bottom of 9-inch square pan with parchment paper or spray with nonstick cooking spray.Combine flour, cornstarch, spices and salt in small bowl.Beat butter and powdered sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in pumpkin until combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just incorporated. Spread dough into pan smoothing top with spoon sprayed w/nonstick spray.Bake for 80 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and Immediately sprinkle top with coarse sugar. Cool completely before cutting into squares. (and I mean completely or else gf shortbread has a tendency to crumble if cut while still hot/warm).* I think this would also work with 1 3/4 c. gf flour instead of the flour and cornstarch (iow, just use more flour) and next time I might use more butter--I've been baking regular shortbread for many years now and it seems it works better with a higher butter-to-flour ratio than the original recipes normally call for.GF Pumpkin CookiesBeat together:1/2 c. sugar1/2 c. criscoAdd:1/2 c. pumpkin1 egg1 tsp vanillaStir in mixture of:1 c. Better Batter All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour1/2 tsp baking soda1/2 tsp baking powder1/2 tsp (or to taste) cinnamon--or pumpkin pie spice(s) 1/4 tsp saltFold in:1/2 c. chopped walnuts1/2 c. raisins (or dates)Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto sprayed cookie sheet.Bake 12 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven or until lightly golden and tops of cookies spring back slightly when touched (allow for the fact cookies will continue baking while cooling on cookie sheet).Let cool completely.

Bake until golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
