Welcome to the new year, 2013. I hope you had a good New Year’s Eve and that you will have a wonderful new year. May all you wish for come true and that you stay healthy and happy.

First of all: I am sorry. It’s been 8 days since my last post and I am truly sorry. It’s been so busy here lately that I had no time to either photograph or write. I am baking but I am also baking old recipes that I’ve already posted. For example, I made 15 dozen Raisin Cookies, which left me with 20 egg whites.

Wild Serendipity, a local baker in Saskatoon, was kind enough to share her Macarons recipe with the world on her blog. Click here for the original post.

Pumpkin Spice Autumn Sandwich Cookies

 

The other day I thought about what to make for Autumn. My mind wandered around my kitchen and what type of tools and things I have there. I know there a bunch of things for Halloween, but I am not there yet. However, I wanted to make something, something that’s not pie for that matter. Finally, I remember that I have leave cookie cutters, as well as a pumpkin and acorn. They are originally for pie but great for cookies too. Now all that I had to decide for was a recipe.
