Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
I was definitely in the baking mood this weekend. Here’s my 2nd cookie. One of Todd’s best friend came over for dinner and the Seattle vs. New Orleans football game so I made these for dessert. I couldn’t make them fast enough! They kept asking me for more! :)
(Recipe from www.allrecipes.com | photos from me!)

One more picture from fellow foodie bride, Nikki. She wasn’t my SB but I was so proud of my cookies I had to send a couple to my “mentor”. :)
