PUMPKIN-CHOCOLATE COOKIES: not as nutty as you think...

(bear jar by Gary Rith)
I was making this bear the other day, trying to do a panda, right?  I did not manage a panda and will try that again sometime...but this bear was so much fun I quickly made a cookie jar for it.  I usually make the cookie jar THEN the knob figure and maybe this is the first time a sculpture has asked for a pot ...

I was getting rice pizza crust recipes off the web here Sunday and I saw this woman's recipe for pumpkin snickerdoodle cookies, gluten-free!  I started to make them and realized "the heck with the spice, let's add a cup of chocolate chips instead!" and it was BRILLIANT.  The wife was like "these are so light!" and I was like "sooooo moist and rich"....

Finally, you can see the cat and dog helping the wife make curtains (for our neighbor) while I was baking....have a great Monday!

We just saw another recipe for something made with pumpkin and chocolate. It's a new food trend. I think I would have included the spice also.

Yes, pets are ever so helpful. Whenever I work with any kind of papers, Homer is sure to sit on them to keep them from moving.

I left the spice IN but did not roll them in sugar and spice :)

Well, when you do finally come up with a panda, that will be the end of me for I will die of fabulous pottery overload. This bear jar is great! Pumpkin and chocolate also great!

That bear definitely needed some cookies. Good choice! :)
