Happy fall! I can’t wait to share this delicious recipe for pumpkin spice cinnamon chip cookies with you! As I’m sitting here now, the wind is gently blowing outside and crisp leaves are blowing around in the street. Is it just me or does the air in fall have a very distinct feel? It’s crisp, cool (but not cold), and it even smells good. Pumpkin spiced latte anyone?
Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Chip Cookies
Over the weekend my kids and I eagerly pulled out our harvest-themed decorations for the front of the house. We’ve got some decorative corn, some rustic barrels, a couple of stacks of beautiful pumpkins, a scarecrow, and of course, a wreath with some burlap. I even picked up a couple of barrels of hay and placed a few sunflowers on top. We’re looking mighty festive for the fall!
After decorating the outside, the kids and I decided to bake some cookies. We pulled out the basic ingredients, then we got a little creative! The result: a house that smelled so good that it lingered out of the windows! If you were around our house that day and noticed the most amazing pumpkin spice cinnamon smell, that was us! These cookies are divine. I secretly put a couple in my kids’ lunchpail for school today along with a box of milk. Can you imagine how they are going to feel at lunchtime?
Just in case you’re wondering, we did eat a little bit of the dough off of the mixers. There’s no need to waste any of this delicious dough. Here’s a tip: place a couple of chocolate chunks and cinnamon chips on top of the cookie dough to make super pretty cookies! We recommend using a spoon or even an ice cream scoop to make evenly sized cookies. Just a note: kids are really good at this part:) Well, even if they’re not perfect at it, they still love to put the cookie dough on the baking sheet.
