Fall is here!

It's an enigma to me how to reconcile my love for the autumn season with my extreme loathing of being cold. There's nothing wrong with cold weather, but that invariably means that I personally am cold. However, I am putting aside thoughts of lower temperatures in favor of thoughts of oranges, reds, yellows, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, apple cider, pumpkin pie, sweaters, and Halloween candy. So, in honor of the first day of Fall, Gingerbread Cookies! I made lots of batches last year, and I think I've finally perfected a recipe I'm excited to call my own. They are spicy, but not overwhelming. Soft, not crispy. Cute, but not time consuming. All five of you who actually read this blog, I hope you're excited to decorate gingerbread cookies in a couple weeks!

Rolling out cookies is one of my favorite tactile experiences ;)Some "creative" cookie decorating

I am SO excited to decorate cookies! Much more excited to EAT said cookies, but still. I like your pumpkin cookies, especially the little leaves at the top.

Those look like some sweet cookies Christi. I have an extra set of decorating tips and bags, if you think we need them.
