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.
I could have imagined it, but I felt like there was almost a chill in the air this morning. Like I could almost wear a light jacket for 10 minutes over my tshirt and shorts. But the calendar says fall is coming whether or not the weather here agrees. There are some new autumn card designs in the shop to get you in the crispy leaves and hot tea mood.
Carved up some jack o lantern cookies this morning, so we can munch on them while we carve real pumpkins. Gingerbread cookies this time. I made sugar cookie versions last year. Halloween is fun. You don’t get to carve gourds on any old holiday.
I have been waiting almost a whole year to use these cookie cutters. After seeing all their little faces, it was definitely worth the wait.
