ive been slacking on re making the pumpkin cookie recipe i came up with last year. i wanted it for october 1st. way off. so i decided it has to be out by halloween at the latest. less than 2 weeks away now.
i made the cookies last night. and i dont like them.
the spice is off. i think i made giant batches of pie spice last year and didnt keep good notes on what ratios i used. what i had written on the recipe wasnt enough. chris even ground me fresh cloves! and still they are kinda dull.
i used light brown sugar instead of turbinado because thats all i had in my house in the middle of the night. it may have carmelized way too much. they seem super sweet and too moist.
at 18 minutes the big jaws were pale and kinda doughy still.
did another pan for 20 and still whack.
kept them in for 23 all together, a bit overdone by then.
the second pan i did a wild experiment of glazing them in apple butter for the ultra fall cookie
i also made small thumbprint cookies w/ gingered apple butter
ive decided the cookie is to close to ginger molasses already so adding apple ginger butter is dangerous; it wants to be gingerbread so bad.
ill try different spicing and less sugar and maybe the snickerdoodle trick...
