Totally gonna make these cookies!

So I found what seems like a good recipe for Pumpkin cookies. I’m going to try it out tonight with the addition of some delicious cream-cheese frosting on top πŸ˜€ . Also I’m not going to add the pecans or walnuts just because I don’t think they need them. Maybe I’ll add some orange food coloring to the frosting to make them brighter too πŸ™‚ . I hope they aren’t too soft seeing as how there’s pumpkin puree in them. It’s not that much so I wouldn’t think they would be, but who knows. I’m excited that this batch makes 3.5 dozen but knowing my fiance’s cookie portions, it’ll probably make closer to 2 haha. The picture of them looks really good and it’s making me super hungry. I’m about to go get dinner and then go swimming so it will be awhile before I can make them. When I get back and finally make them I’ll probably post about them πŸ˜€ and let you know if they’re good or not. Here’s the recipe if you want to try and make them too πŸ˜€ .

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 Β½ cup ap flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
pinch nutmeg
Β½ cup butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 c chocolate chips or raisins
Β½ – 1 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment.
Whisk together flour, leavening, salt and spices.
In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugars. Beat in egg, then vanilla, then pumpkin. Add flour mixture and stir until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, if using.
Drop by tablespoons and bake for 12-14 minutes at 350F. Bake them until they’re lightly browned at the edges, but not dark.
Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

I had planned to have a special post today but while I was playing around with Gimp yesterday it froze up and lost my drawing 😦 .Β  I’ll probably get the chance to work on it later today but until then here’s something fun to look at.

Ok so in case you couldn’t tell I haven’t had lunch yet.Β  I was stumbling and found some really awesome looking food and that’s what I’m going to use to replace my lost drawing 😦 .

Anyways the first is this amazing cake.Β  It’s called “… Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze, though it is actually a Sour Cream-Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Peanut Butter Frosting and Chocolate Peanut Butter Glaze, but all you really need to know is that if you know a chocolate-and-peanut-butter lover, you must make this cake,”-smittenkitchen. This cake looks absolutely amazing and considering it’s a cream cheese cake it probably tastes amazing too.
Next a chocolate chip cookie from Levain Bakery. I found it on Cookie Madness. It makes me want chocolate chip cookies really really bad. In the review it says that the thickest part of the cookie was close to an inch and a half. That’s an amazing cookie plus the fact that it looks fresh and melty *drool*. If I ever go to New York I’ll have to hit that place up definitely. Even though they have cookies by mail I doubt they’d be that good after sitting in the mail. Plus it looks like they’re really expensive. For just 4 cookies it’s $22 whoa! It says that amounts to almost 2 lbs. so I guess it’s worth it.
I choose you Pikachu!

Yay I love sushi, well veggie sushi anyways. I like the ones with avocado a lot. I found this site with 8 pieces of sushi art πŸ˜€ . Check out the site for yourself because it’s got some more fun sushi pictures including 2 pictures of dragon/caterpillar rolls yay! That koala is super cute too!
Next, Pacman sugar cookies! Omg they are so cute haha. I would make these all the time. Maybe I should look for that ghost cookie cutter. Apparently guinea pigs love them too; if you check out the site you’ll see it haha. I mean who doesn’t like sugar cookies? πŸ˜€

I think that’s enough food surfing for now otherwise I’m going to die of hunger pangs! Hope you enjoyed the list. I might have to make food the regular Saturday topic πŸ˜‰ .
