It kind of feels like I'm cheating. Or using Cliffs Notes instead of reading the book. I'm sliding by with a C-. But fortunately, I've always been able to plead my case convincingly. Take these cookies for example.
They are soft without being cakey, and studded with bits of pepitas, toasty pecans, and tart dried cranberries. Plus, they have oats. Oats means that they are totally acceptable to eat for breakfast. And that beautiful orange hue? It comes from the addition of pumpkin. Also healthy.
You can find the recipe for these over at Sally's Baking Addiction. I didn't change anything except for the spice (I omitted the plain cinnamon, and upped the pumpkin pie spice to 2 teaspoons). My add-ins were pepitas, toasted pecans, and dried cranberries.
Eats Well with Others, again this year. We'd love it if you'd cook/bake along with us over the next
