My food brain dreamed up these shortbread cookies with creamy pumpkin caramel back in June when the rest of you were thinking about watermelon and Jell-O shots, and bikini tops, and summer sunsets, and all of the amazing summer things. I was sweating it out in my kitchen, covered in pumpkin puree, completely confused by the smell of holiday spices.
It’s about time these cookies make sense! I mean… I’m wearing a scarf for goodness sake. A scarf!
I made these cookies back in June for this month’s Better Homes and Gardens magazine. These cookies are just one of a good handful of pumpkin recipes that fill the pages.
All I’m saying is… this is really good news on the pumpkin front. Because there is a pumpkin front…. we’re looking right at it.
