Happy Pumpkin Eve!

This month has been all about pumpkin flavoured foods and drinks for me. I came across some great recipes online and I tried out a couple from Skinny Taste.

The first one I tried was Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal Pecan Cookies. The only thing I changed in the recipe was that I replaced the butter with unsweetened applesauce. They turned out really chewy and soft. They're not overly sweet but they're a good cookie to nibble on with a hot drink.

I also tried the Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe as well. I again replaced the butter with unsweetened applesauce. These cookies were really yummy and very pumpkin-y. They were soft and the chocolate chips definitely sweetened them up. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie

It seems crazy that tomorrow is Halloween. I baked Halloween sugar cookies today and tomorrow I'm  making cupcakes. Then I get to be in full-on Christmas mode! I cannot wait to make peppermint-flavoured sweets and listen to Christmas music! Christmas makes me feel like a kid if you can't tell.

Have a happy Halloween and eat lots of candy!
