With the cooling weather just now upon us, I am always compelled by certain fall flavors which I like to have. My baking switch also gets turned on, and remains stuck in that position until the end of December.

Just today I went to a harvest apple festival, visited an apple orchard and shopped for antiques. You might think that antiques don’t fit in there very well, but Autumn for me is a time of reminiscing of years past, growing up as a child with new school years, and over time to the school years of my own child.

Scoops of Dough

I always like cooking with things with apples, nuts, cranberries, pumpkin, squash, wild rice….the list goes on! Peanut butter may not always be welcome at schools anymore due to allergy risks of other children, but we can still enjoy at home.

These cookies make a small batch so will disappear quickly and you can be on to the next thing on your list.  Perhaps a homemade PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte)? How will you take yours? I like mine Grande, triple shot, half syrup, full milk. It’s my definition of it. Paired with a few of these nutty cookies and I am all set.

So onward and upward to baking, shall we? And don’t forget to check out the other Fall Flavor recipes this week from Sunday Supper.
