Is It Fall Yet?


Is it Fall yet?  

Now that the kids are back in school I am more than done with the almost 100 degree weather that we are currently having.  I'm not much of a summer person anyways (at the least the summer heat)......but I LOVE Fall......it's definitely my favorite season.  

Whenever I need a little Fall fix, I think pumpkin.  Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin cookies....it doesn't matter......the hubby and I love them all!

I found the recipe for these pumpkin cookies last year, and they have a little bit of everything yummy....pumpkin, cranberry, oatmeal, chocolate, and nuts.  Even though they are cookies, you can feel good about them because they are chock full of stuff that's good for you.  I've made these a couple of times, and they have been a hit every time!  This time around I switched out the walnuts for some sunflower seeds (since that's what I had), and they came out fantastic as well.  So go ahead and substitute whatever you want in these cookies.....play with your food!

Check out All Things Heart and Home for the recipe.....and Enjoy!!

  6. I am so ready for cooler weather too, although it looked like it was going to rain yesterday and that was so odd for August in California. This cookies sound quite tasty. Thank you for sharing them at Joy of Desserts. :-)
