We’ve been receiving many, many baked goods recipes for the Forum this fall, and with good reason: As our days grow colder and darker, few things sound better than creating warmth in your own kitchen with freshly baked pies, cakes and cookies.
These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are spiced with cinnamon and are a fall favorite for Leanne Snowden and her family.
“My mom, Jan Janzen, makes these every year and it is a sure sign that fall has landed,” Snowden wrote.
