    hello again,

    Can anyone give me some advise?  When I bake a cake or pumpkin cookies or even pumpkin biscotti. I can not seem to bring out or enhance the true pumpkin flavor. Is there an option? I have increased the pumpkin spice, but after it's baked, it's so blain...

    Could there be another flavor, or spice or liquor to add in?? /img/vbsmilies/smilies/confused.gif  help!!

    What spices are you using?  I use a tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 1/2 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp. all spice and a pinch of cloves.  Some times I put in a splash of Brandy.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Kelley,

    Yup, used the all above.  All I can say is I must be a picky baker.  But I strive for perfection in the quality of taste!!
