Illumination + Pumpkin CookiesSaturday, October 23, 2010
It is after 3:00 a.m. again, oh well. The good news is, I made some wonderful pumpkin cookies at like 1:00 a.m. this morning! :D They were delicious! I like middle of the night baking, it can be quite fun!
My boyfriend had mentioned that he wanted cookies, and I thought "hmm, yeah... cookies would be really good..." and since we had the ingredients for these, I had to make them. I will include a link for the recipe. Man, do they ever smell wonderful! Perfect for fall.
I did however change a few things, I used light margerine instead of butter, I substituted 1/2 cup of the white sugar for brown, and I added only 1/2 tsp of cloves and added 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the nutmeg. It turned out so good! Plus, I used an extra large egg. Sometimes I find the cookies can use a bit more time in the oven, so just keep an eye on them. Also, I find that these cookies are not so much "cookie"-like, as they are cake/top of muffin-like. So good.
(My sister likes them, and she hates pumpkin). The taste is reminiscent of spice cake. <3
Here are some photos of my first illumitated letters. I got some gilding supplies for my birthday from my family, and I made this piece in August for my sister.
