‘Tis the season for apple pie ANYTHING wouldn’t you agree? This has certainly been a year unlike any other I have personally experienced, but I am determined to get in as much festive fall fun as I possibly can.

That means I’m baking and baking a LOT! Nothing makes me feel more in tune with my favorite seasons like baking my favorite seasonal recipes. 

And while pumpkin recipes have definitely been on repeat in my house the past couple of months, apple recipes are just as high on my family’s “please make this” list.

Cookies have been particularly popular. We usually wait for the holiday season to do the bulk of our cookie baking, but this year waiting just didn’t feel right.

So, I’ve been gathering as many tasty fall cookie recipes as I possibly could! And this one is particularly special…

Of course, I’m a sucker for anything spiced. It evokes such a cozy feeling! And as I have been living in athleisure and slippers since March, clearly I dig the cozy vibe. Bwah!
