A very good friend got married a few weeks ago on October 1 and the week before was stressful event after stressful event! She took it all in stride and I offered to treat her to a relaxing minimal-wedding-talk night, her choice! An easy night in and the bride-to-be wanted to bake pumpkin goodies [I was expecting manicures or Big Bang Theory]! It was so fun to bake with a friend and didn’t hurt my motivat|er goal!
We started with pumpkin snickerdoodles, noticed after our grocery trip that they had to refrigerate for over an hour! so while they chilled we whipped up a batch of pumpkin muffins which turned out great! [full disclaimer:I lost both recipes in the depths of her computer.. but the links are similar ones.]
