This has pretty much been my attitude since the holidays ended. I can't figure out why I'm so NOT motivated to do much of anything. Maybe it was the sub-zero weather and snow that we had for over a week and is now gone, or maybe I've contracted SAD. Who knows, but I'm back!
The finished Orangies, cooling, so they can be cut into squares.

2-1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups pumpkin purée (homemade if possible)
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar or sucre vergeoise
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups chopped walnuts
2 cups chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F or 185°C. Butter and flour a 9x13" pan (I used an 8x11 because that's all I have.)
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together into a bowl.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy, mix in eggs and beat well. Then mix in pumpkin and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture to butter/pumpkin mixture. When slightly blended, add in chocolate chips and walnuts. Fold thoroughly.
Bake for 35-45 minutes. In my oven it took 34 minutes because I have ventilated heat. Test with a toothpick or skewer. Let cool and cut into squares.
