About two weeks ago, I went to visit my family in San Antonio for a couple of days. My mother's kitchen is just so much better than my own. For this reason (and the seemlingly endless supplies), I always feel the need to cook while I am there. I will have to post of picture of my small kitchen sometime soon so that you guys can see the tight quarters that I am working in. Going home though, reminds me that I hope someday I will have a kitchen as nice as hers except with gas appliances. Maybe this doctor thing will eventually pay out after all of these sleepless nights and countless hours in books? LOL. Anyways, to celebrate the wonderful weather that we have had in Texas this October and the feeling of fall, I decided to make Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing from the Martha Stewart Cookie book.
Above: My mom decided to take a picture of me icing the cookies.
Given the fact that I have already posted several of her recipes on my site. I am only going to post a link to the recipe that I found on her website for the recipe. Pumpkin Cookies with Brown Butter Icing Recipe
Overall I give these cookies 4.2 out of 5 stars. They were simply delightful and I couldn't help eating them even if I tried to stay away from them. My favorite thing about these cookies was how incredibly soft they were! They simply broke apart... I am not going to lie...this characeristic was slightly magical. The brown butter icing tasted a little like cinnamon roll icing. It was really sweet...almost too sweet alone. However, it melded well with the cookies when I put them together and the cookies balanced the sweetness. When I make this recipe again, I may try to cut the recipe in half. The recipe produces TONS of cookies. I was overloaded with cookies afterwards that even after giving away half of them, I still had cookies to eat a week later. Craziness! I highly recommend trying to make these cookies especially in the spirit of the fall season. Enjoy!
