We finally have autumn weather, even a few frost warnings in the area. I say finally because this is my favourite season. I love the cooler temperatures during the day and the down right chilly temperatures at night, necessitating an extra blanket on the bed. We always sleep with a window open regardless of the weather. I sleep better in a cool room.
I wish I had a photo of the autumn colours to share but the weather has been so weird, not enough cold nights, that the leaves have barely begun to turn.
Yesterday was National Homemade Cookie Day! I love baking cookies. Taking all the disparate ingredients and melding them into a bowl of goop…
that will become individual three-bite (or in Hubby’s case two-bite) rounds of delicious fun.
The combination of ingredients is limited only by your imagination – and common sense. I don’t think anchovies would work in a cookie. But I have no doubt an experimental pastry chef somewhere in the world has tried. Perhaps in a savoury cookie, i.e. a cracker.
We’re quickly approaching major cookie season with all the holidays and celebrations coming up. I’ll be making pumpkin cookies for both Thanksgiving (October 9th here in Canada) and Hallowe’en. And a veritable mountain of buttery sweet cookies dusted in red and green sugar for Christmas. I can’t wait to start baking!
What’s your favourite cookie to bake and/or eat?
