Good morning fellow food fiends! I had a great weekend with my dad and let him picked what I baked since he doesn’t get to enjoy it very often. He choose cookies, but I choose the exact recipe.
These were very good. I recommend reading the entire recipe through before starting. Nothing particularly difficult but I had preheated my oven and then read that I needed to refrigerate the dough for a half hour before I could continue. I found the sweet spot with my ancient oven which was 10 minutes, flatten with spatula and then allow to continue to bake on the hot baking sheet for another 10 minutes. (The recipe makes more cookies than it says. I doubled the recipe and had overflowing plates of cookies.)
Yes, my fellow pumpkin fiends, that did require an all caps title. We’re six days into September and I’ve tried 3 pumpkin spice things, all of which were new to me. Saving best for last, let’s begin:
Meijer Pumpkin Cake Rolls
Not bad but not as amazing as I had hoped they would be. A decent enough pumpkin treat but if you limit your pumpkin intake to not burn out on it, I would skip and try one of the next two instead.
Chobani Pumpkin Harvest Crisp Flip
Every other pumpkin yogurt has failed me, but not this one. This is awesome. Pumpkin yogurt with pie crust pieces, pecans and glazed pumpkin seeds. (Glazed pumpkin seeds are my new favorite thing.) DO IT.
Voortman Pumpkin Spice Wafers
Good pumpkin gods just eat these! I love wafers anyway and this brand has not disappointed me in any of it’s flavors yet. I will not even be ashamed if I eat half the package myself.
Have you tried anything pumpkin yet this season? If so, what and what were your opinions on it?

Since getting my fancy new stand mixer for Christmas, I have been absolutely lazy about baking. I’m pretty sure my husband is going to strangle me sometime soon. He spent a lot of money on the damn thing. I fully intend to use it a LOT, I’ve just been distracted by so many things. So many stupid things.
This bread was super tasty. You cannot go wrong mixing chocolate and cinnamon.
