I couldn’t be happier that the week is finally coming to an end. I’m starting to seriously feel the effects of sleep deprivation. Be prepared though. I will only become more tired and haggard as the quarter progresses. At least I’m not running low on motivation to bake! I have so many recipes I want to try for Fall and just in general. I just bought a bunch of apples from the farmer’s market. Only something good can come out of that. What do think: Apple pie? Apple cider? Apple butter? Correct answer: all of the above.
It seems like everyone else is in the mood for Fall goodies too. I asked for requests and most of them involved pumpkin or apples or at least a Fall/Halloween theme. When my lovely roommate, Maya, suggested I make these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, I did not hesitate for a moment. Everything is better with chocolate!
I know the pictures make these look almost scone-like. But they are not at all scones (not that a pumpkin chocolate chip scone is a bad idea!). Instead these are super puffy and fluffy. It’s like biting into a cloud of pumpkin…which sounds strange, but trust me, it’s a good thing!
I think the airy texture makes them seem healthier too. They’re not overly dense or rich, so you can eat A LOT. I haven’t decided if that’s a good thing or not. Anyways, enjoy these little morsels of Fall deliciousness. 🙂 I know I will!
P.S. Do you like the hand-me-down dishes I got from my brother? I wouldn’t say they are exactly Fall themed, but the color scheme is spot on.
