Autumn Day All the Way


Having lived in Wilmington for 7 years, I had almost forgotten how beautiful autumn can be. On the way to the grocery store this morning, I spied this beauty at the end of our driveway:

At the grocery store, I purchased the items needed for this week’s menu":

Funnily enough, it’s only day one and we’re already off schedule…but for a good reason! Parrish’s sister-in-law Liz is celebrating her birthday today, and so we’re heading over to their house for supper. :)

Since I was off today, I decided to try a recipe in the new issue of:

this cute little recipe book that Pillsbury publishes. The recipe that caught my eye:

I can’t post the recipe because I didn’t change many items. But if you’re a cookie lover, I highly recommend purchasing this publication.

I left the ginger powder out of my batch and substituted the all-purpose flour with 365 Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Mix. The ingredients are pretty simple:

Crystallized Ginger :) Sweet and Spicy!

Most gluten free cookie dough comes out super sticky, but this was a very pliable dough.

The cookies cooked great, and I was pleased with each batch. But let me tell you the best part.

Browned Butter Icing is the BEST icing I have EVER tasted. EVER. Super easy to make and absolutely scrumptious!

Little bites of autumn…and heaven!

I made an extra batch to take to the birthday girl. :)

However, the icing on top of today was an autumn walk Parrish and I took complete with fall inspired flannel:
