ChocolateChipBars

There’s something about Fall that brings out the baking in me. I’ve been craving pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting. I was thoroughly distressed to find out that there was a bad crop of pumpkins, therefore, no canned pumpkin. Which means no pumpkin baked goods for us… At least until someone in my family hits the jackpot on the MIA canned pumpkin and buys a case for me.

But I find the baking bug is still strong, so I pulled out my trusty KitchenAid and we made our favorite chocolate chip cookies. However, we did something wrong and the first dozen came out incredibly flat. I pulled out the baking dish and turned the dough into chocolate chip bars instead. Yummy!

I’m a coffee drinking, book reading, laundry procrastinating, husband and children loving, mess of a woman who believes that chips and salsa can fix anything. We have chickens running around the backyard, a mountain of dishes in the sink, and on any given morning, I have at least 10 school forms that need my signature or initials. It’s a crazy life {I prefer to call it controlled chaos}, but its ours.

That looks delicious! I've had the itch to bake lately too. I made banana bread on Sunday.

I've got a few cans of pumpkin left from last year... too bad we don't live closer or I'd give you some!
