Welcome To Day 4 Of Baking With Pumpkin!
Today was a beautiful day! We headed up into the mountains and to Takko Town for the Beef & Garlic Festival.
I had hoped that the leaves would have changed more than what we ended up seeing. It is so beautiful out there. It is a 2 hour drive from base and very worth every minute of it too.
In all honesty, we did not spend too much time there. The beef was practically sold out when we got there, so we just walked around to all the different vendors and purchased all of our beef & garlic sauces and oils. We are now stocked up for a while!
On the way back home we stopped at several different produce markets. I was itching to buy apples and pears but have decided to hold off till we go apple & pear picking later this month.
I know there are a lot of cookies I’ve been making so far but I really do have a lot of different things planned but love to include cookies because they are fairly simple and make a good amount, especially because I give my goodies to others.
I’ve never had these cookies before and I certainly will be making them again. They are scrumptious and just so tasty! Oatmeal cookies with an awesome twist! They even taste amazing the next day.
