Although I have always liked desserts (you’ll notice the word is HUGE in the list to the right of this post), my favorite dessert tends to change. Ice cream is ALWAYS top of the list, but beyond that, I go through phases. Recently, I have been in a cookie phase. And this weekend, I was craving a thick, soft, homemade cookie.
Peanut Butter Month was so much fun, I knew I wanted to do a new cookie every week this month to celebrate. With new cookie recipes galore (Thanks Pinterest), it was time to bust out the mixer.
I found this recipe on Averie’s blog and was reminded of it during my recent Pinterest searches. I love a girl who doesn’t skimp on the spices! Two tablespoons of pumpkin pie spice. Sign me up!
One important note, these cookies require at least 3 hours in the fridge, so plan accordingly. I chose the third quarter of the Bear’s game to get started on my cookies and when I heard things weren’t going very well from the other room, decided to stay in the kitchen and bake up another cookie recipe…coming soon!
I had a little trouble getting my cookies into the right shape. My cookie scooper is small so I attempted to use this 2 tbsp measuring scoop sprayed with cookie spray. It worked out alright…
But looks aside, these cookies turned out soft and fluffy as promised!
I took half of my cookies into work today, where they were met with a huge welcome and eager eyes. The other half, I froze for company this weekend.
Thus far, the start of my taper week is going well. I slept 9.5 hours last night and ran 3 miles this morning.
And now I am enjoying a delicious cookie with a glass of my new favorite fall tea. With less than a week until race day, I am starting to get nervous! Very nervous!!!
One last funny I had to share…while I baked cookies yesterday, Cooper tried to block out the embarrassing Bear’s loss.
It’s gonna be a long season : )
