The other day while I was doing my typical afternoon spend time looking at different food blogs I came across a pumpkin cookie recipe. The second I read the recipe I knew I was making it. For a quick second I thought about making pumpkin pie, but then realized how much I really didn’t want to deal with a pie crust so I opted for a dessert-less Thanksgiving.. unless someone else was going to make something. I’ll let you know if that happens. The thought of making no dessert did feel a bit odd as I do love pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and apple pie quite a bit. I grew up with having the option to eat all three every Thanksgiving. In fact I grew up with the most delicious Thanksgiving spread. More variety than I’ve ever seen anywhere else. All homemade too! But coming off a bout of food poisoning I decided to take it easy. I made these cookies this afternoon and they are delicious. Extremely fluffy, not too sweet, and plenty of pumpkin flavor. I stacked mine on parchment paper to prevent sticking. I’m going to take the advice I read and leave them out on the counter overnight. Click for the recipe.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
