In the past I have avoided the pumpkin portion of fall time. I never would’ve considered pumpkin crinkle cookies. Because pumpkin is honestly not my favorite flavor in the world. Pumpkin Spice Lattes didn’t excite me, and I definitely wasn’t going out of my way to make a pumpkin pie! My favorite was, and still […]
