It’s felt like fall time here in Wyoming. We have had 60 degree weather all week this week. It’s kind of nice for it to cool down a bit. My husband took out window air conditioner out of the window yesterday, the space heater are going at night. One of my favorite things about fall time is all the desserts and fall themed dishes that are served at this time of year. Pumpkin is added to almost everything. It’s the best! I have this great new recipe that I want to share with you all, and of course it has pumpkin in it. These Pumpkin Oat Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best sweet treat you need this fall.
