My Cake #3 has not been made yet. It was going to happen last Sunday and taken to work on Monday, but I wasn’t feeling so hot after a Saturday night of Halloween high jinx. Let’s just say, the lady-like composure that eluded me last Halloween in Vegas did not deem this year’s festivities appearance-worthy either. And now that I’m on my pie-making adventure, Cake #3 might not happen for another couple of weeks. That’s ok though, because I’m still getting in a few easy treats mid-week that are exceptional.
One such treat is the Pumpkin Snickerdoodle. I made a full-sized batch to take to the costumed crew last weekend, and they were thoroughly enjoyed. The half-batch that I took to work a couple days ago didn’t even make it to lunch (it pleases me that some of my coworkers enjoy their sugar in the morning as much as I do). The cookies are incredibly soft with a mild fall flavor, definitely not too pumpkiny, and both times I made them I got more cookies than what the recipe called for (3 dozen for a full batch). I would have gotten a few more if I could restrain myself from eating the dough, but you know what, I’m not concerned about exercising restraint in the confines of my apartment where no one is able to watch me. Deal with it.
