HELLO my loves! Let's address the elephant in the room, shall we? I've neglected you. Left you high and dry. Honestly, how did you even get through the past couple of weeks without my sartorial advice and witty quips?? Full disclosure, it isn't because I don't love you. I've just been going through it lately. If "it" is the USA. Literally. I just drove across the country. Cause I moved. To the City of Brotherly Love. Goodbye LA LA Land. Hello Philly. There's a new blog in town.
So, as a consolation for abandoning you, I made cookies. And these cookies are GOOD. Like hopefully good enough for you to forgive me for leaving you high and dry. Honestly, even if you don't forgive me, do yourself a favor and make these. They are truly the sweetest way to celebrate #NationalPumpkinDay. Check the recipe below:
In a medium bowl combine 1 and 2/3 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt. In a large bowl, cream together 1 stick of softened butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 cup sugar. Then, add 1 egg, 3 Tablespoons of pumpkin puree and splash of vanilla. (I never measure. Live dangerously, you know?) Slowly add your dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Fold in 1 cup of chocolate chips and drop by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes or until edges are browned and centers are set. Let them cool on the tray about 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. If you can. Or just eat them off the tray. No judgement.
So there it is. Can we be friends again now? Actually, make sure you eat a cookie and then get back to me about that. X
