Pumpkin Cookies

Chloé made the most wonderful pumpkin cookies yesterday. The house smelled so lovely and they tasted divine! Emma told her they were the best thing she's ever eaten. High praise from a big sister. Chloé followed the recipe here.

I ate some. Well, we all did. Emma is right. They are very, very good.  I also painted a couple. Not the same two above. Chocolate chips found their way into these ones. That happens here.


In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October. I have so many blog and Etsy friends in the U.S. now that I feel like we should celebrate twice. I suppose being thankful twice a year (at least!) would not be a bad thing. Have a wonderful celebration!

  1. I´ve never eaten anything with pumpkin in. We have pumkins here in Sweden as well, but there´s no real tradition to actually use them to anything else but decorations. Have to try sometime! :-)

    1. Oh, you must! Pumpkin pie too. So good. I'm going to make pumpkin soup tonight and then we'll be over our seasonal pumpkin obsession. :)

  2. Dear Kathleen - these are absolutely delicious - I make them here always in the autumn. I love the sketch and how the choc. chips made it into the ones you painted. I didn't realize that you celebrated Thanksgiving in October...I just may have to celebrate with my dear Canadian friends then as well. Can anyone have too much Thanksgiving!! My tighter skirt might say so (LOL) Have a wonderful week.

  4. How scrumptious! I bet your house smelt like heaven whilst they were baking.

    We make triple choc chunk cookies here - Jex used to trade them at school for all sorts of lunch time treats. Choc chip Cookies are the black market currency in the playground!

    1. These ones disappeared so fast, they wouldn't have made it to the playground. :)

    1. It is a nice one. Not so commercial. More about family.
