Girls Got Kicks Interviews in Sneaker Freaker

Girls Got Kicks Interviews in Sneaker Freaker - Sneaker Freaker Founder Lori Lobenstine

Girls Got Kicks is a book project put together by Lori Lobenstine, founder of Female Sneaker Fiend, to showcase all the lady sneaker fiends of the world and show the boys that they’re not the only ones who like to keep their kicks fly. She enlisted M.I.S.S.’s very own Amanda Lopez to shoot all the women and their sneaks as the duo travels across the country to different cities.

Lori Lobenstine, founder of Female Sneaker Fiends baked these for MISS GDK and they were delicious.  She thought they would be a great recipe to make for Mama’s Kitchen in the autumn and Lori was kind enough to share her recipe and how these cookies came to be…

I was working at a summer camp during college, teaching a class on politics that I called “The Chocolate Chip Cookie Government”. (Long story.) My boyfriend’s mom knew I loved chocolate chip cookies, so she got me this book for Christmas. I’ve tried a lot of the recipes (all good!), but this one is the one that folks ALWAYS ask for. Even people who look puzzled when I first describe them turn out to be fans…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour

4 tsps baking powder (not soda)

1 Tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ginger

1 tsp salt

1/2 cup shortening (I use 1 stick of butter)

1 cup white sugar

2 large eggs, beaten

1 cup pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin (I always use canned.)

9 oz good semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips (or to taste)

(Some people also like to add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts.)

Soften the butter and then stir in the sugar. Mix in the eggs and pumpkin. Stir well.

In a different bowl, mix all your dry ingredients, then add them to the wet ingredients. Mix well.  Then stir in chocolate chips. (And walnuts, if you want.)

Bake at 350. They won’t brown, so it’s a little hard to know when to pull them out. I like them when they are no longer wet on top, but just ever so slightly firm to the touch. Overcooking will dry them out, but make them a bit prettier. I usually cook them for about 12 minutes, more or less depending on the oven.
