Pumpkin Pie Cookies on Thanksgiving


I was getting a little stir-crazy when I got home on Tuesday for Thanksgiving. So I made these pumpkin pie cookies, something I had pinned on Pinterest a while ago and never thought I would actually get to. Here’s the result!

The instructions by Sweet Sugar Belle worked perfectly, even with a first-time royal icing user like me. They look pretty much like slices of pumpkin pie, right?!  I didn’t have the special icing tip to make the crust, so I just did a straight line. The cookies were total sugar bombs, and the kitchen was left rather sticky…but they were pretty darn cute.

Pie day, pie day!


Thursdays have become Pie Days in B’s apartment.

This has led to several weekly occurrences, one of which being pie appearing in the oven every Thursday, and another one of which being me running up and down the hallways singing “Pie day, pie day, gotta get down on pie day!” to the tune of Rebecca Black’s Friday.

The first Pie Day was celebrated with a wonderfully mediocre pumpkin pie with a lattice crust. Last week’s Pie Day featured apple pie with a lattice crust, which created some divisions in the house. B likes his apple pie with Braeburn apples. I am a Granny Smith apple + one-cup-of-sugar-to-counter-the-tartness purist. I actually detailed this argument in a job interview last week. Not really sure if it was appropriate or not, but it got a chuckle. And I’m great about talking food. As you all know. 

What should this week’s pie be, Tumblr-verse?!
