Fall. I have a love and hate relationship with it. I hate it cause it tells you that winter is coming, and winter in Wisconsin is brutal. I love it cause bugs go away, temps are warm in the day, yet cool off at night, and most importantly PUMPKIN EVERYTHING comes back around. I originally planned to make this a snickerdoodle theme but pumpkin just kept calling! Moist, light and fluffy, served great warm or cold! Enjoy!
