When in doubt eat chocolate and pumpkin! That has been my motto for the past month or so. This week, it means Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I love these cookies because they are soft and pillowy. I have a similar banana chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have been making for years but I recently added this pumpkin recipe to the mix. The texture and flavor adds an additional dimension to your basic chocolate chip cookie. And the pumpkin is just another way to enjoy the flavors of the fall season.
Speaking of fall, yesterday was the first day that it actually felt like the seasons were changing. There was a crisp chill in the air when I left the house, and all of our citrus trees have started turning color. Tonight it is supposed to be 42 degrees which means that I will definitely wear my jacket this weekend. I have to say that I am actually looking forward to some cooler weather so that I can wear my boots and scarfs. I don’t like it to get too cold, but just cold enough where I can wear something other than flip flops and shorts for a few weeks. And I absolutely love turning off the air conditioner and opening the windows.
