Pinterest got me again.
I made pumpkin kiss cookies last week… and that’s about as good as me building a cat scratching post or knitting wool socks for Rob. You know why? I don’t like pumpkin, I’m allergic to cats, and Rob cannot.stand.wool.socks.
|I intended to use orange sanding sugar to be different
….but later changed my mind and went
with the standard clear sugar.
Sorry for the innaccuracy in my photograph
In my opinion these are like little mini-cakes because the texture is so cakey and not really cookie-ish. But they were really so easy to make and who doesn’t love a soft chewy cookie? And Rob’s advice for those who may want to make these….Don’t skip the sanding sugar on the outside. It really adds to the cookie and it wouldn’t be the same without it. And he’s a cookie connoisseur so trust his advice, ok? Here’s a real surprise…..Mia loved these. Apparently she’s nothing like her mother because she’s a big fan of pumpkin. Rob really loved them, too! And I sent a whole plate of them into his work and they loved them, too! So all in all….the pumpkin-lovers prevail. And I’m left with nothing to fulfill my chocolate intake requirement for the week. Sad
