Apple Cider Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

I found this yummy recipe on AllRecipes. I’d recommend substituting 1/2 cup brown sugar for 1/2 cup of the white sugar though. The 1.5 cups of just white sugar just isn’t enough in my opinion. I’m going to do that the next time. I changed the glaze a bit, too. I’m sure the glaze listed is fine and it is a typical glaze, but I wanted something with a bit more, zing to it. So, I used a good apple cider from a local cider mill instead of milk, and instead of adding vanilla I just added a bit more cider. I also sprinkled in some pumpkin pie spice. Just keep tasting until you like what you have 🙂 I highly recommend these cookies. You can find the recipe HERE

Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter

Image 

This stuff is quite possibly one of Trader Joe’s best kept secrets. I had a friend recommend it so I decided to try it. Had I just found it in the store I probably wouldn’t have bought it since it is pretty much gingersnap cookies. I mean, I like gingersnap cookies, don’t get me wrong, but an entire jar of creamy gingersnap cookies? Hmm, probably not. OMG, everyone from my kids to myself LOVE this stuff. Seriously, it is really, really good. Unfortunately, it’s not that nutritional. With peanut butter you are at least getting protein, but not with this stuff. To be fair I haven’t checked out the nutritional chart on the bottle, but based on what is in it I’d be willing to bet that it is pretty much a sweet-addiction that I can add to my list. If you get the chance to try it, don’t pass it up. We’ve had it on bread, crackers, heated up and put on ice-cream, and everything in between, including just scooping out of the jar 🙂
