After more than two years baking out of Baked Elements, we’re down to the last three recipes. I love all of the Baked books, but I’ve had more misses in this book than the rest. And I’m really excited to move on to Baked Occasions, releasing in just two days.
The pumpkin chapter of the book is my least favorite, but Larry’s very much in favor of it. There’s one more pumpkin recipe left after this – hurrah! That said, these aren’t overly pumpkin-y, and they’re nicely spiced. They’re soft, meant for dunking in milk or coffee (or hot apple cider? Tea?). Not just like a soft cookie, but oddly soft, resembling a cross between a soft cookie and a muffin.
I resisted the urge to replace the dried cranberries with dried blueberries. I think it would be a nice match with the cinnamon.
Most of these went to work, and they got a good reception. Larry liked them a lot, too. I think they improved after a day or two in an airtight container.
For the recipe and to see how the other Baked Sunday Mornings bakers fared, head over to Baked Sunday Mornings.
