Yes, November is the time for an attitude of gratitude.
And food made with pumpkin.
The first batch I made a larger cookie, and frosted them with a cream cheese frosting a friend of mine had made. VERY yummy!!! (Doug ended up liking this version the best.)
Second batch: same as the first, just a smaller version and not as much frosting. These were good, but after the first batch with all that yummy frosting they seemed a bit weak.
Fourth batch: Doug protested when he heard that I was putting butterscotch chips on top. "I'm not really crazy about butterscotch chips..." Turns out they were really good and Doug changed his mind after the first bite!
Fifth and final batch: These had raisins and pecans mixed in, with a little frosting piped on top. These were really good and ended up being my personal favorite.
A big thank you to my accommodating hubby for all that exhausting tasting. This recipe is a winner and I'll definitely be baking these again during the holidays. I plan to tie them up in pretty packages for door-to-door gift giving with our neighbors.
How about you? Are you starting to think about holiday baking?
I plan to end every November post with a little gratitude. So:
* I am grateful that I have the means to buy groceries to make cookies whenever I want.
* I am grateful for an oven that works really well.
* And I'm grateful for a sweet husband to help eat the goods.
