punkin’ honey (a recipe).

you know how there are certain foods that trigger memories?  maybe it’s a dish that was served at your wedding, or the first time you tried sushi on a first date, or the taste of tequila that will forever remind you of a certain cinco de mayo party (ahem).  for me, pumpkin & chocolate chip cookies is one of those foods.  they will forever make me think of the first play date i attended at my friend rebecca’s house.  the combination of chocolate and pumpkin was so heavenly i wondered where they had been all my life and then proceeded to devour the majority of the plate.  (keep reading for the recipe)

i was hoping to get rebecca’s recipe to share with y’all, but she just had baby no. 3 and i didn’t want to bug her for it.  instead i did some digging around the web and found a taste of homes recipe that looked good and made some changes (not a fan of oatmeal in my cookies).  the dough is goopier than normal, but it bakes like bread and is delish.

hope you enjoy!
