and so it begins

Every year I think to myself: I'm not going to go crazy with the pumpkin stuff this time. But in the last week I have made pumpkin bread, pumpkin pancakes and now pumpkin snickerdoodles. And it isn't even Labor Day! I just can't help myself, I guess.

There are quite a few standby recipes that I make over and over and over (find some of them here), but I love to try new recipes, too. Today I made these pumpkin snickerdoodles. I usually don't love snickerdoodles, but I thought I'd give them a try anyway. They were light and fluffy and yummy. If you like plain snickerdoodles, you'd probably love these.

The good news: I am getting much better at not eating the whole batch of whatever it is I'm making. I love to make half-batches, or better yet, give the majority away to the neighbors. Hooray for having a teeny bit of will power! It feels good.

We're sticking around this weekend. Mike has strep throat and I have to teach primary tomorrow. Are you doing anything fun?


  1. Glad you enjoyed these :)

    I'm baking with pumpkin today too! It's too good to try and restrict!

  2. I have a 5 week old and a toddler so I'm just trying to stay awake. But we do love to bake and I believe there is pumpkin in the cupboard...these cookies may be in our future. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. I love that you love pumpkin and live in a very hot state. Would you believe I picked three pumpkins from a garden my landlord planted? It's the best :) I love fall and we have a pretty one in MN. Strep is the worst, awful. Here's hoping he feels better soon.
