It is definitly my duty to share with you the most amazing cookies in the world. Who knew that pumpkin cookies with chocolate chips would taste like heaven. These cake-like cookies are very moist and don't usually last long. I usually bring these to our family reunion in the Fall and they tend to go really fast. Make them this weekend, I promise you will thank me for it.
Next up, my Grandma's pumpkin bread (which is also amazing as pumpkin muffins) and pumpkin butter. I love my Grandmother's pumpkin bread recipe, and as I mention above, I make it year round. I also love to keep a few loaves in the freezer to pull out when company comes over, or to give as a gift. I also make a batch of pumpkin butter every year to give away as gifts at Thanksgiving. I also keep a few for myself to enjoy throughout the year. It's perfect on Granny's pumpkin bread, but it also amazing on banana bread or even just a piece of toast. I'll likely be making a batch of this soon.
Next, this is not a recipe, but a great find. I was a World Market the other day, browsing their Fall decor, when I stumbled upon this Woodchuck Pumpkin flavored Hard Cider. It doesn't have a strong pumpkin flavor, but is more like a less-sweet version of an apple cider. I really love it and will definitely be stocking up on more of it. If you love hard ciders, I would definitely recommend trying this.
And last but not least, it's a Bryn, who thinks she is a pumpkin. Over the weekend I set my cermic pumpkin by the door, and Miss Bryn proceeded to sit next to it, well until I finally put it out on the porch. She looked like she was trying hard to be a pumpkin. Such a strange dog, but we love her!
What kind of pumpkin recipes do you love, and should I try? I definitly want to try and make pumpkin waffles. We make waffles almost every weekend so of course that has to be added to the list of recipes to try. I think I also want to try and make a pumpkin smoothie of some sort. More to come as I enjoy the next 3 months of all things pumpkin!
