There was an epic search for a pumpkin the other evening. I guess central Austin is almost out of pumpkins? But we managed to find a few to bring home, and we are planning on carving them tonight. And you can’t carve a pumpkin without pumpkin shaped cookies.
In my house growing up, you got “fired” from certain jobs if you weren’t doing good work. I rarely got fired from anything, but I was promoted very quickly up the cookie making ranks. The cookie baking sessions at Christmas are always some of my most favorite times of the year.
Santa brought me a couple of new (and old) cookbooks, so I am looking forward to all the kitchen adventures soon to come in the new year!
