First Day of Fall

Today is the first day of fall, my favorite season of all! I love it when the leaves start to turn and fall off of the trees this time of year. I’m from New England originally, and this season was the most beautiful up in the North. The cool air was welcomed in NY just as it is in GA. What better to do on the first day of Fall than to bake spicy fall cookies? I’ll tell you what: Nothing. That’s right. There’s nothing better to do.. Except maybe *eating* spicy fall cookies.

Spicy Acorn Squash Cookies

3 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp Sugar
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup winter squash
1 eggs
3/4 cup AP flour
3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp freshly ground ginger

Cream the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the Squash and the eggs and combine until well mixed. Slowly add all the dry ingredients (Sifted first, of course!!) into the wet batter. This should all come together quite nicely, and smell even nicer.

Form into tablespoon-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 for about 12-15 minutes or until done. Cook on a cookie sheet and serve as you like them!

Enjoy these treats with applesauce, or even better, some apple cider. I cut mine open horizontally and filled them with a thin buttercream to add some sweetness.

Happy Baking, Folks!
