*1 Tbsp. of Ghost Curry Powder is the “Trick” version—these will have a spicy Ghost pepper kick! Use 1 tsp. Ghost Curry Powder instead for a milder “Treat” version. Make one batch of each and see who can tell the difference!


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together pumpkin, egg, 2 Tbsp. melted butter and vanilla in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Scoop 1-inch size balls of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 12 to 15 min. until lightly browned. Remove from oven and brush lightly with remaining melted butter. Allow to cool slightly on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container up to 3 days.

"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the store in St. Petersburg, FL. What a treat to meet those guys and be treated like one of their regulars! They were willing to break up a set for me so that I could get my Cuban Island Spice -- who does that?! So impressed with them as well."

Made these cookies tonight using fresh pumpkin. Tasting them just out of the oven probably isn't doing them justice, but they are tasty - and zingy! I only used the "treat" amount of Ghost Curry... a tad more would be OK, but I don't think I could handle the "trick" amount! I will definitely make these again.
