Mo’ Cookies, No Problems.

 Well, it’s definitely hurricane season round’ these here parts.

Rain, all day, all weekend, erry month, all the time.

Okay, not really.

But seriously, we got a TON of rain this weekend and there is only more to come.

Me is happy happy happy.

Rain just means that I am allowed to cook/bake ten times more than usual.

This has not been easy while my mom has been painting the kitchen cabinets.

Paint & banana bread just don’t mix.

Ehhhhh…it’s whatever.

This weekend I got to spend some family time w/ my cousin and aunt who came to visit while my cousin was on fall break.

Where was my fall break in high school?

Because I was in the baking mood

and because I’m the most awesome-est person ever

I decided to whip up some cookies for them.

The real kicker here is…

IMG_3048

I completely forgot to bring them w/ me to my grandparent’s house.

The downside of this…not being able to share these absolutely delicious cookies w/ my family!

These babies are all about the pumpkin.

I mean, hello fall!

 If fall were a cookie…

Oh, and yes…those are chocolate chips.

Not being able to share cookies has an upside…more for me!

  1. A great recipe I can’t wait to try out. It looks incredible. I love Pumpkin and those adventurous enough to use it! I wish more would.
    I came up with my own version of a Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cooks. While different from your own, I think mine is a unique take on the dish. I’m new to the Food Blog scene and would love some feedback from a pro like you. Check out my recipe if have time.

  1. […] Mine came out very soft and flat, with a bit of a gooey consistency (likely the result of too much flax egg, but I don’t care—they were delicious!). Gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free. Wheeee! Again, I made a half batch of 7 cookies. Double for more! Recipe from the awesome blog Mangia, here! […]
