I love fall and to me as soon as September begins, it’s fall y’all! Nothing says fall like “pumpkin”!
So last weekend I grabbed Sweet Daddy, aka my husband, we went to the store, picked up a few items, came home, put some music on, and headed to the kitchen. I decided to tweak my chocolate chip cookie recipe by adding some pumpkin. He measured, I mixed, we both sang, and bada bing, bada bang, cookies were made!
I have to say, they were sooo good! They embodied the taste of fall in every bite.
May I suggest making these, sit by the fireplace, eat cookies, and make out! If the weather is still too warm, light a candle that smells like a fireplace and proceed to enjoy your night. I hope you will give this tweaked recipe a try.
