Default Quick & Easy Pumpkin Bread Recipe Please

I am looking for a good easy pumpkin bread that I can put some up in the freezer for the holidays.

Also, would like a good chocolate chip cookie recipe besides the one on the back of the pkg of Nestles Chocolate Chips but nothing that takes alot of preparing. I am not a baker since none of my kid's (4) nor myself eat sweets but now my grandkid's (8) all do... Thanks, Meme

See this thread -- Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies.

Also this one for bar cookies, which are the easiest of all: Chocolate-Coconut-Peanut Butter Bars.

Both are easy and very good.

I haven't made pumpkin bread in a coon's age, but I recall that the recipe on the can of Libby's pumpkin is easy and very good. It's available at this link: Libby's Pumpkin Bread

Thank you very much Fry Boy for taking the time to check for me. Really appreciate it. I think to be on the safe side instead of some unknown site, I'll use Libby's. Really do not have anything to lose except ......I have never been able to bake worth a crap, everything flops, and like I said, my kid's were and still not much on sweets, maybe now I see why they never developed a taste for them, my baking! Again, thanks...

Baking isn't all that hard, it just requires a little knowledge and some precision. It's like chemistry -- the amount of each ingredient is critical and must be measured carefully, the order in which things are mixed together is important, the amount of time things like butter and surgery are beaten matter, and baking times and temperatures are important. The rest is learned by doing.

In the cookie recipes, I've tried to make the directions as clear and explicit as I can, mostly for my daughter's sake as she's not a very experienced baker, either.

I think the Libby's recipe is pretty much fool-proof, although I'd probably add walnuts instead of cranberries -- or maybe both.

Fry Boy's second bar cookie recipe reminded me of another bar cookie that is so quick and easy. We call them Hello Dollies. It's basically:

- spread grahm cracker crumbs over the bottom of a baking dish
- add melted butter to the crumbs, mix together, and press along the bottom of the dish
- top with chips of choice (chocolate, butterscotch), nuts of choice, coconut (or not)
- pour sweetened condensed milk over the top and bake

Sorry, I don't remember the amounts or baking time. Maybe someone else will.

Sounds like Magic Cookie Bars, a major hit in the 1970s:

Heres one I made last year

Chocolate Chunk Cookies
1-3/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped

PREHEAT oven to 375F. Mix flour, baking soda and salt until well blended; set aside. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well blended. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chopped chocolate.
DROP rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
BAKE 12 to 13 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Serve immediately. (Or, wrap cooled cookies in plastic wrap and place in tightly covered container or resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature before serving.)

Super Moist Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adding a pudding mix to the old standard really puts these over the top! This is the only recipe for Choc chip cookies I ever use! The original recipe calls for one bag of choc chips, but I usually use closer to 3/4 of the bag.
12-24 servings


2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 (4 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix or vanilla instant pudding mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs

chocolate chips, to taste

Combine all ingredients. Drop spoonfuls to desired cookie size on cookie sheet, Aprox 1 tablespoon for med-large cookie.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

My photos below recipe. Will take a loaf to friends I'm visiting this weekend.

(Also, there are excellent cookie recipes in this thread that have gotten lost in the thread. If I remember, I will extract them someday and start threads for each.)
