I've been ichin' to do some fall baking.
Since I can't find canned pumpkin right now on island, I figure apples are the next best thing. Besides that, I love baking with apples. The aroma that fills the house is wonderful.
Apples just scream homemade goodness. There's so much you can do with them.
Fritters, streusel, cobbler, pie, candy apples... take your pick.
I figured I would try and make scones with them, but after pulling these lovelies out of the oven, they resembled more of a poofy, airy cookie. Very similar to the pumpkin cookies I would like to share with you...... if only I could get my hands on some canned pumpkin!!!
Anyway, baking these cookies really helped me get over my canned pumpkin frustrations... somewhat.
So, as I anxiously await the days leading up to Thanksgiving and
I mean, not only do they act as an air freshener, they also taste great!
