Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3 1/2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 Cups brown sugar, packed
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 Cup canned pumpkin mush
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbl vanilla extract (pure)
2 Tbl butter
1 1/4 Cup nuts, coarsely chopped

Combine first 5 ingredients in large bowl, stir well. Combine pumpkin, eggs and vanilla, stirring well with wire whisk. Slowly add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened (mixture will be very crumbly).

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat, add nuts. Cook, constantly stirring, until nuts are browned. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Knead or gently stir nuts into dough. Place dough on lightly floured surface and divide into 4 portions. With lightly floured hands shape each portion into a 1" x 15" log. Place logs 3" apart on cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 for 23 minutes, cool logs for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 300.

Cut each log crosswise into 1/2" slices using a serrated knife. Place slices on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 300 for 15 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.
