It’s finally Friday! Yay! It’s been a busy week at the Two Peas and Their Pod household. We’ve been playing catch up from our fun California vacation. Catch up is never easy or fun-laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, emails, and doctor’s appointments. Caleb had his one year checkup which meant five shots. Luckily, he is a brave boy and did just fine. I had to get my flu shot and I don’t think I was as brave:)
I did take a break from all of the catch up to bake Biscoff Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies. A cookie break is the best kind of break…and I needed a good break!
My Biscoff Oatmeal Cookies are one of my all-time favorite cookies. I decided to make them with a fall twist. I added pumpkin puree and fall spices to the mix. Our house smelled amazing while the cookies were baking. I want to bottle up that smell and create a candle…or better yet a perfume. Ok, maybe not a perfume because then I would be hungry and craving cookies all day long. Not a good idea for a cookie addict:)
The cookies are super soft and chewy. The Biscoff Spread (a sweet and creamy spread made with Biscoff cookies) and pumpkin are a match made in heaven! I love the simplicity of this cookie recipe. You can go crazy and add in chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, dried cranberries, or pecans, but I really liked them plain and simple.
Take a break from your everyday “to do” list and bake a batch of Biscoff Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies. And did you know October is National Cookie Month? So you pretty much HAVE to take a cookie break. I think it is a law.
If you are in the mood to do some major cookie baking, check out my post at Cafe Zupas. I am sharing my top 10 favorite cookie recipes. How did I pick only 10? You caught me. It is impossible for me to pick favorites when it comes to cookies, so I just picked 10 cookies that I am currently craving. The list might change in 5 minutes, but I promise the 10 recipes I picked are all winners! Check them out!
