Hi there! It's know it's been a while since I've posted. I've been busy baking and cooking up a storm using the delicious flavors of fall as inspiration - Pumpkin snickerdoodles, cabernet cranberry sauce and roast pork loin with harvest veggies. What's that link you ask? Oh, it's my newest blog - running foodie. I created a blog that incorporates my love for food and fitness. Don't worry! I'll still whip up indulgent decadent dishes like my chocolate peppermint cake and blue cheese stuffed buffalo turkey burgers but I am also trying out healthier versions of my favorite recipes. I thought I would write about the healthier options on running foodie while keeping the more indulgent recipes here.
Now onto more important things - Cookies!
I remember when I was younger, my sister Emily and I decided to start a cookie company - Auntie Em's Cookies. We specialized in snickerdoodles - Yummy little buttery bites with spicy hints cinnamon and sugar. I think we were able to get a few orders, but if memory serves my correctly, my mom ended up baking the cookies and Emily and I still ended up keeping the proceeds! I thought of our little adventure when I discovered this recipe on Annie's Eats.
These pumpkin delights are a nice twist on the standard snickerdoodle. The pumpkin taste is not overpowering which is why I think I like them. I am a big fan of pumpkin, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the pumpkin flavor so subtle. This is an easy recipe to follow and many of you may already have all the ingredients on hand.
