Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It’s already halfway through September and I am so so ready for fall, despite the current weather hanging onto summer with all its might. I’m the kind of person to make pumpkin foods year-round, so it’s nice when it’s seasonally appropriate. If you’re looking to dive into the leaves of fall, try out these pumpkin pasties. The crust is nice and flaky and the filling is rounded out well with a medley of spices. It’s all topped with a sugar and spice mixture to give it an extra crunch. I recommend listening to the Harry Potter soundtracks while making these. It ads a certain, dare I say, magic to the whole experience.

From my understanding, it’s a cake-like cookie sandwich and is easier to make than pie.

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! I wanted to try to make something I haven’t made before – shortbread. Shortbread is a firm favorite of my mother and brother. I only really remember my family making it from scratch one time in my life, and I didn’t really remember what it entailed. I just remembered it was a crisp and wonderfully buttery treat.
