At Last.....

.

The pumpkin shortage is over! Hallelujah!! Right?
/
So the day my local grocery store finally stocks the shelf with canned pumpkin is the day I make pumpkin cookies. Are you kidding me? The very day. Yesterday was day two of pumpkin cookie baking and Gary said to me, "Will you always make me pumpkin cookies?" in the same voice as, "Will you always love me?"
.
There is only one way to his heart.
.
Zoe got to help me make the cookies on the first day. After whippin' the butter and foldin' in the chocolate, the dough finally went in the oven. I set the timer and Zoe said, "How long do they have to bake?"
.
I said, "Eight to ten minutes?"
.
She said, "huh?" (or some version of that)
.
And I said again, "Eight to ten minutes."
.
She said,"I don't get that? I don't get what it means when people say 8 ta' 10 minutes."
.
I said, "That means that the cookies should be done anywhere between 8 or 10 minutes."
.
I could see her wheels turning and she thought on that.
.
Then she said, "So it really only takes 2 minutes?"
.
.
Get it???

(I had to tell it to Gary twice before he got it)
.
Love Pumpkin Cookies but haven't found the recipe yet? This one is the one for us.

i'm so glad your husband and children appreciate your baking. silas' reaction is more like, "oh...you made dessert again? i'm kind of sweet-ed out from that one cookie i had three days ago."

:)

and so it is left to me. eating all of the sweets in the house is a lonely job, but someone has to sacrifice and do it. i take one for the team.
