This past Sunday was our church's annual Thanksgiving potluck lunch. Everyone signs up to bring a dish and we celebrate together a pre-Thanksgiving dinner as we share in fellowship. I was in charge of taking sign ups and decorating. We resued some decorations we've accumulated and this is what the general table layout looked like.
Simple. I liked how it turned out.
I signed up to make mashed potatoes but I HAD to make dessert.
Thinking about pumpkin desserts I thought it would be cool to make some pumpkin cookies. When I used to work at Ralphs I remember absolutely loving the pumpkin cookies that I had to put out in the bakery section. It was moist and cake-like with semisweet chocolate chips.
I found this recipe on the Food Network's website. It got an average of 5 stars and really great comments so I was pretty sure it was going to be good.
It was... ok. Lots of people at my church loved them but it wasn't the same as what I was expecting. The recipe said not to use semisweet chips.. but I did anyway. Most of the cookies came out really flat. Maybe it would have helped to refrigerate a bit before baking... or maybe adding more baking soda...
... or maybe I'll go to Ralphs and pick me up some pumpkin cookies in the bakery section.
