Pumpkin Cookies with a Brown Sugar Glaze…What Up, Fall.

Recipe: A simple pumpkin and cinnamon cookie with a brown sugar glaze.

Tonight the low in DC is 53. And I’m officially calling it fall. As such, it’s time for jeans, sweaters, jackets, and any and all varieties of squash. Delicious, delicious squash. Today, in fact, has been a two squash day for me. Dinner was spaghetti squash – my first time having it – and it was awwwwesome. Then I decided I needed to continue my evening of squash and move right on to pumpkins. And what better way to celebrate the pumpkin than to make it into a cookie? And then slather it in a brown sugar icing.  (Oh and then using the remaining pumpkin puree for pumpkin soup tomorrow for dinner. Yeah fallllll.)

Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip & Dried Cherries Cookes: It’s a Pumpkin-Baking Extravaganza!

Recipe: (1) A bourbon-pumpkin cheesecake with a bourbon-sour-cream topping on a graham cracker and pecan crust (picture to come tomorrow). (2) Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with dried cherries.

It’s been a long weekend. And I needed something fun and relaxing to do. If you know me, and I assume you do if you’re reading this blog, you know that for me, this was the perfect opportunity to bake. But not just one baked good, oh no, tonight was a double header, my friends. A delicious delicious PUMPKIN double header. The first round tonight included a bourbon pumpkin cheesecake, complete with a bourbon-infused sour cream topping. (I’d like to make a shout out here to my friend, Ravi, for adding Jack Daniels to my surprisingly large collection of alcohol [it’s all for baking, Mom. I swear!] and allowing me to make said wonderful treat). The second round tonight consisted of a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie with (surprise!) dried cherries. But more on the surprise later.
