Bakers Corner: Pumpkin

I know I already told you about pumpkin. But when you love somethinig, you really feel the need to share it (or push it upon others). Really, you MUST try this. I KNOW you'll love it. Hee Hee.

Josh asked me the other day, "Do you think you'll get tired of pumpkin?" My answer was, "Nope." I will not tire. I will continue to eat pumpkin everything all season. In fact, I'll eat it all through fall, winter, and into spring if I can help it. 

So, let's talk about pumpkin. My favorite so far this season...Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. No joke, these were a HIT. A hit with our church friends, a hit with my co-workers, a hit with Josh and me. They were heavenly.

You're probably drooling. No? Well, out of the kindness of my heart, I'll share the recipe. I combined two recipes: Use this for the Whoopie cookie, then use this filling insteadHave fun with that.

Wait? You want more? Alright, if you insist. I also made a tasty pumpkin coffeecake.

This was very good. And guess what, if you want, you can eat it for breakfast. Here's the Recipe.

Today I'm either going to make Pumpkin Toffee Cookies, or Pumpkin Gingersnaps. Tough decision.

Oh, and I ain't done yet. I don't always bake, you know. I buy tasty things too. Like these pumpkin macaroons that we picked up on our fly-by trip to the Bay Area from Chantal Guillon. I've recently discovered my like of macaroons. So light and tasty with a slight crunch. I'll have to try to make them myself someday (but they seem kinda hard to make). Aren't these little treats cute?

I will leave with this: pumpkin is everywhere. In your ice cream, in your coffee, in your donuts...everywhere. Get with it, and eat it.
