Pumpkin Spice Sugar cookies

What encompasses the flavors of fall more than pumpkin spice? It’s no wonder! Pumpkin spice is synonymous with the crips beauty of fall.  Yes, I’m absolutely one of those people who loves pumpkin spice and fall. It makes me feel so cozy and happy.

I think living in the North East makes Fall that more magical. That and the fact that I’m perfectly aware of what’s coming in a few months. Furthermore, I cherish and hold on to everything that symbolizes fall during this magical time of year.

Growing up in Miami, Fall wasn’t a thing. It was non existent. So when I moved to Kansas years ago and I got to experience a bit of fall I was hooked. Of course fall in Kansas doesn’t even compare a smidge to Fall in New England. Now that’s magical.

There’s nothing more exciting than piling in the car on a crisp fall day and heading to the local apple orchard for hot apple cider and apple cider donuts. You haven’t lived until you’ve done it. If you happen to live in the south where it’s not cold, drive north and do it. Because hot apple cider on a hot Florida day just doesn’t have the same effect. 

That’s why I love everything fall. It’s just magic. Furthermore, that’s why I simply LOVE this recipe.

    So this is the third pumpkin recipe I’ve read about today. I must make one soon! It is so hot out here though, still in the upper 90s, so no baking yet. I can’t wait for the cooler temps since these cookies look fun to make.
