Pumpkin sponge cake

Pumpkin sponge cake

If there's one thing I like about cookies in general, it's their crunchy texture, that's why I was a bit skeptical about trying these. biscuit biscuits, characterized by its crunchy topping and tender heart. However, I can't say anything else about these pumpkin sponge cookies but will repeat them.

The pumpkin is an ideal ingredient to prepare both salty recipes like sweets. Its combination with dark chocolate in cakes and biscuits provides these with a perfect balance between sweet and sour that I personally love. And these cookies are no exception.

You can do without dark chocolate, but this not only provides a bitter touch to this bite, it also makes you perceive different textures in it when you bite. So these cookies are a delight with a glass of milk or coffee. Now, be careful because they will absorb half a glass before you know it.

    I find it an interesting recipe that can be made with the help of my daughter who loves to cook.

    I just bought the Mambo 10090 food processor on this web and I'm looking forward to trying many recipes to see how they turn out.

    Can you prepare the dough with a food processor?
