Fall Baking

Happy November everyone!!!! Welcome to the coldest month of the fall. I’ve been waiting all year to bake a fall pie, and last weekend I was finally able to find the time. This is my very first pie and I have to say, it turned out quite well. Maybe it was luck, or maybe I just underestimated my baking skills!

I found this recipe on Pinterest of course. If you would like to follow the recipe, click on the link below.

I love most pies… but, there is no pie like Pecan Pie.

My First Attempt At Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

Imagine this. You’re twenty two years old and have never made chocolate chip cookies from scratch by yourself. I know what you’re thinking…. Sad and pathetic right? Well, other then the occasional licking the spoon full of cookie dough while I was supposed to be learning how to make cookies, this is the case. I’ve never made homemade cookies by myself.

I decided I would try it out the other night. So I went on Pinterest (because how else would I find the perfect cookie recipe) and pinned a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe. I made a list of items I would need, and went shopping!

As I started to read the directions on mixing the ingredients together, I thought to myself, This seems easy enough. Well, turns out I was wrong. Making something for the first time can be challenging.

For example, I didn’t read ahead and so I stumbled through a few steps. But all in all… Those cookies turned out delicious!!

One thing I would’ve done differently?? I would’ve skipped the wax paper on the pan. I ended up pealing wax paper off the bottom of my cookies before I ate them! Lol!

This is the recipe from Pinterest if you want to give it a go!
