I’m sitting here this morning as the first real snow of the season coats our lawn while it’s still softly falling.
It’s winter. The kids are cheerfully welcoming the snow and though I feel like there simply isn’t time to do all that I want to do, I do so enjoy baking when the weather is cold. Like I’m getting two things done at once – making something special for my family while the heat from the oven warms our chilly home.
I always loved pouring through cookbooks, even as a child. And at Christmas I loved choosing new cookies to bake. There were old favorites, of course, but I remember one Christmas in particular when I made a huge variety of cookies and made up plates to give as gifts.
I just love gifts from the heart that are made at home.
Maybe these yummy (and healthy) cookies will make it onto your Holiday baking list.
Please join me over at The Nourishing Gourmet where I am sharing this wonderful blend of pumpkin with an old favorite, the Snickerdoodle. And you’ll even find out where the name comes from . By the way, Kimi’s blog is really something special. I think you’ll like it.
Happy baking! I’d love to hear how you like these! Stop back here to let me know or you can comment on Kimi’s blog.
You can read the rest of the recipe here.
