Fall


pumpkins, originally uploaded by annieoakleaves.

Fall is my favorite time of year. I really miss all of the color changes and it always seems like with the passing of each new season you get to start off with a clean slate. Now that I live in sunny southern California it's hard for me to get that feeling of renewal and being able to wipe the slate clean.Im thinking maybe every season we should take a drive north to experience it.
Anyway I thought Id leave you with my most favorite cookie recipe ever. Whenever I make them they are gone quickly and we never seem to have enough. I like to put them in the fridge after I make them and then have them with a huge glass of milk. Let me know if you try them!
