So here is the deal. Chocolate cookies are amazing by themselves. And so is cream cheese frosting. So why not put the two together and end with a delicious whoopie pie sandwich? I made these around Thanksgiving time so I did pumpkin cream cheese frosting, but you could substitute that in for a plain cream cheese frosting, or you could also make mint frosting to go with the chocolate.
It’s well established that I love muffins. But sometimes, I want to be healthy and just can’t eat a big hearty muffin every morning. So I found a compromise – a muffin that’s filled with lots of healthy stuff and isn’t quite so sinful. See below.
Also, just a note, the blog will be quiet for the next two weeks because I will be attempting to survive my first set of law school finals. But I promise to be back on Wednesday, December 18, after all this craziness is over. Wish me luck!
So if you’ve been reading my blog, you know by now that I love pumpkin. Last Sunday, I decided to use it in a new way by making donuts for the first time. And wow, these were delicious.
I’ve never actually fried something at home before, but I’m proud to say I didn’t screw it up too badly.
In the fall, I always try to have pumpkin around. I like to throw it in everything- risotto, croissants, and pasta. This weekend I had some extra pumpkin, and I love whipping up random baked goods on Sunday mornings, so I decided to go looking online for something breakfast related with pumpkin.
The result was cranberry pumpkin scones.
