in the last week, i went from complete and total denial of the changing of the seasons, to full on in love with fall. i went from refusing to wear a jacket (or long sleeves for that matter) to work to apple picking, chili making, and hot cider drinking. the only thing that speaks fall just as much, if not more than apples, is pumpkin. last fall kicked off with mini pumpkin spice cupcakes, moved on to pumpkin spice scones, and ended with an iced pumpkin chocolate spiced bundt cake for my mom's annual halloween party. this year i am kicking off fall with these pumpkin gingersnap cookies i saw last week on two peas & their pod.
these cookies were almost exactly what i was looking for - perfectly sweet, spicy, with a hint of pumpkin flavor. but the one difference between my cookies and maria's is the rise. mine came out a touch on the cakey side. next time i'll reduce the baking soda a bit.
