I don’t know about you, but I’m getting all antsy and excited for Fall. Cooler weather, cozier clothes, leaves changing color… but best of all… apples and pumpkins. Oh my! I’ve had a ton of fun coming up with ice cream recipes and other desserts over the past handful of months but cool weather comfort food is what I really enjoy. Are you as excited for all things Fall as I am? Because, I’m super excited. This is my absolute favorite time of year. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that Winter is right around the corner. And that brings cold temps and even worse… snow and ice. Brrrr. So let’s try to savor Fall for as long as humanly possible. I’ll be kicking things off in full gear the second September hits, so be ready.

Only just when I’ve given up on Summer, ready to put it all behind me and move on… we get a few hot days again. What gives August? I’m doing my best to try and live up Summer for the last week or so until school starts back up for us. Fingers crossed we can squeeze in one more pool day and lots of outdoor time. And … maybe a trip to the apple farm for some early apples. I can’t help it! ;)

Something else I’m obsessed with lately is cookies. These ones in particular are freakishly delicious. They’re a nice blend of a bunch of my favorites only better. They’re a classic chocolate chip cookie, full of flavor and super soft… that stay soft. No need for a slice of bread to keep these babies soft. They’ll stay that way on their own. These are absolutely one of my favorite cookies. They’ll be made over and over again. I promise you’ll agree and do the same.

The great thing about this dough, since you have to chill it ahead (which might seem like a pain, but trust me it’s worth it), you can pull it out to bake fresh cookies right in time for the bus to drop your kids off in the afternoon. Or bake some up while you enjoy dinner, so you can enjoy a warm cookie for dessert. Because not much beats a warm freshly baked homemade cookie.
