On Friday we had a pumpkin themed potluck in my office. A number of people asked me what I was making, to which I replied “pumpkin snickerdoodles”.

The transition from summer to fall is always a bittersweet moment for me. I’m never ready to say goodbye to long, warm summer nights, but I also can’t wait to start baking fall recipes, like this scrumptious apple cobbler.
