No tricks....just treats!

Happy Halloween! No tricks here....just wanted to share some pics of my fall/Halloween decor....AND a recipe for some yummy pumpkin cookies I found last night!
Below are some "faux" mini pumpkins I painted white and stained.

Here's a fun little trick-or-treater I found at the Paris Streetmarket in Colorado last fall.








White Chocolate Pumpkin
Cookies
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup solid pack pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups white chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice & soda.
In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in pumpkin puree. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add in the flour mixture until combined. Stir in the white chocolate and pecans. Drop by rounded tablespoons (2 inches apart) on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees for 20-22 minutes until set.


Don't forget daylight savings time ends this weekend! Set your clocks back an hour!
Have a wonderful weekend!
