I have found way too many pumpkin items that I want to try.. So I have decided to extend my pumpkin month into November. And possibly adding another pumpkin recipe per week.. I'm not sure if I am that ambitious or not, so we'll see!
This week I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I found this recipe over at Chef in Training. She has some awesome recipes over there, so be sure to check her out!
I found that my cookies did not come out to looking like they did over at Chef in Training.. Mine were a bit on the cakey side. They were still good, but I'm not sure what I did wrong. I do have some ideas running through my head on how to make them more to my liking.
I've also been experimenting with popcorn balls.. So be on the look out for those recipes sometime this next week!
