Make These 13 Types Of Cookies For This Fall

Make These 13 Types Of Cookies For This Fall
What’s better on a cold, crisp, fall day than baking cookies? My grandmother and I used to bake all of the time in the fall. The scent of the cookies filling the air, flour all over my clothes, and by the end, we had delicious cookies and milk! Want to recreate some of those memories with your own kids or even grandkids or heck, your parents? Fall is the perfect time for mixing up some new recipes and recreating some old ones. Below are some of my favorite recipes that are not only easy, but scrumptious!

1. White Chocolate Pumpkin Cookies

    These are jam-packed with white chocolate bits, chewy and absolutely the perfect fall cookies. White chocolate and pumpkin in a super moist cookie? That sounds like fall perfection!

    2. Caramel Apple Cookies

      These cookies not only have the perfect taste of fall – but the frosting? It’s delicious! They are packed with Granny Smith apples and apple juice that’ll bring you right to the apple orchard.

      3. Oatmeal Pumpkin Creme Pies

        Whoopie pies have been all the rage, and these look so, so delicious! The oatmeal, the cream, the fact that it’s a sandwich – what could be better?

        4. Candy Corn & White Chocolate Cookies

          Do you love candy corn? Do you love white chocolate? These cookies are definitely for you. They are soft-baked, too, which means they are gooey on the inside. These are sure to become a staple in your family during the fall months.

            I’m down for anything that includes cinnamon and frosting, and that’s exactly what this cookie is all about! If you are looking for a cookie that has fall written all over it, it’s this one.

            6. Caramel Apple Snickerdoodle

              These cookies are not only a bit spicy, but they feel like fall when you bite into them. I absolutely love them and they are totally on my list to make every single fall.

              7. Pumpkin-Spiced Shortbread and Apple Cider Frosting

                This cookie combines two of my favorite things: buttercream frosting and shortbread. Add in a bit of pumpkin spice, and you’ve got a cookie that encompasses everything you love about fall!

                8. Candy Corn Cookies – Finally!

                  While I did reference different candy corn cookies earlier in this post, this cookie is designed for the candy corn haters! It is shaped like candy corn, but doesn’t taste a thing like it. So cute for a Halloween party!

                  9. Cinnamon Crumb Pecan Sandie

                    Who doesn’t love a crumbly, nutty, cinnamon cookie to have with their tea or hot cocoa during the fall? Sandies are the perfect fall cookie for you to indulge in. They aren’t too, too sweet, which is refreshing!

                    10. Pumpkin Apple Snickerdoodles

                      Pumpkin takes a back seat when it comes to this cookie, the apple is really the star! The chunks of apple are so chewy and the small hint of pumpkin just makes it. No need to choose #teampumpkin or #teamapple with this cookie.

                      11. Salted Caramel Coconut Thumbprint Cookies

                        You can’t go wrong with salted caramel, right? These cookies mix in refreshing coconut and the beauty of rich salted caramel. It tastes like autumn in the form of a cookie. I eat these while I’m around a bonfire at night – so good!

                        12. Soft Gingersnap Molasses Cookies

                        Chocolate-Chip-Gingersnap-Cookies

                          You probably are already making gingersnap cookies this fall, right? Well, have you thought about adding some chocolate chips? The perfect addition to cut a bit of the spiciness of the ginger!

                          Advertising

                          13. Oreo Funfetti Cookies

                          Oreo-Funfetti-Cookies-31

                            These cookies are ideal to hand out instead of candy!  Make up a batch and you’ll be the most popular house in the neighborhood. Personally? I eat the entire batch myself

                            35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

                            35 Anniversary Ideas to Bring You Closer Together

                            Every mature relationship has had a less-than-memorable anniversary. Maybe one of you forgot, or both of you got busy with work, kids, family issues, or something else. Whatever happened, the day came and went without fanfare. And neither of you seemed to notice or much care.

                            But for the health of any relationship, it’s important to make important days feel special. Anniversaries offer the wonderful opportunity to relive beautiful memories, practice gratefulness for your partner, and to show your love and strengthen your bond. Make this year’s anniversary with your significant other something special  — one that will bring you closer together.

                            Advertising

                            The best way to create a memorable anniversary is to do something new and different together as a couple. Stretch yourselves a bit.

                            Advertising

                            While boredom can silently kill a relationship, new experiences reinforce the shared bond you already have and create strong new memories. Just think back to the most significant memories you have right now with your spouse and imagine what new ones you can create!

                            Advertising

                            While you enjoy your chosen anniversary activity, be sure to keep a positive attitude and make your partner happy too on that day. Leave all arguments and day to day detail behind. Just celebrate your relationship. Whether you’re going to spend the day together at home, getting away, or having a wild and crazy new experience together, you can have your best anniversary yet!

                            If You’re Staying In

                            1. Spend an evening with no technology, just the two of you and maybe a board game. It’s hard to keep ourselves away from our computers and smartphones long enough to have a meaningful conversation. Make a rule not to use your tech and you’ll rekindle your relationship!
                            2. Make wine or beer together. If you enjoy drinking together, this is a fun activity to try together. Just remember to buy the necessary equipment ahead of time.
                            3. Learn something new about each other. With an open mind, try asking some of the New York Times’ 36 questions that lead to love. They’ll help spark intimacy and will lead to some really honest moments.
                            4. Have a lazy day. Breakfasts in bed, spend all day in bed talking and napping. Follow breakfast with champagne and dessert! If you feel like getting more active, cook together or play some games. Here’re some simple breakfast ideas for you.
                              • Learn to dance at home. This is best for those active couples who work out together and also enjoy learning something new together. Just go on Youtube to find any music with dance tutorials and learn together.
                              • Visit model homes or open houses and plan your dream home.
                              • Have a special dessert – champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Having an unusual treat makes a day feel extra special. If you want to make the dessert really special, try these tasty dessert recipes.
                              • Create a playlist of your favorite songs as a couple. Choose songs that tell your story, and songs that you bonded over throughout your relationships. Here’re some love songs ideas for your inspirations.
                                • Write your love story. Write it together or ave each of you write your own and then bring them together in an interesting, both sides of the story format.
                                • Get a fondue pot. Fondue is a fun way to enjoy melted cheeses (for savory items) and melted chocolate (for sweeter treats).
                                • Decorate! Turn your home into a dressed-up french cottage, a sophisticated restaurant, or simply with flowers. The different ambience will immediately change the feel of your home and make it feel like a staycation.
                                  • Talk about the future together. It might sound simple and everyday, but imagining how you want to spend your retirement together, or planning future trips can be exciting and romantic.

                                  If You Want to Get Away

                                  1. Take a day trip together to your favorite spot. If you live in a city, it can be incredibly refreshing to get away for an afternoon and drink in the outdoors.
                                  2. Go on a scenic drive and stop at a wine and cheese bar. Or, if you’re lucky enough to have lots of options where you live, try a brewpub. There are tons of small craft breweries with fantastic food options too.
                                  3. Go camping. Relatively affordable and, if the weather’s right, beautiful and romantic.
                                    • Take an overnight backpacking trip. For the more adventurous couples, backpacking is an even more intense way to challenge yourself physically while becoming one with nature.
                                    • Take a wine tasting tour. If you live on the West Coast or in the Northeast, take a drive to the nearest winery. Many offer relatively inexpensive tastings and deals if you purchase a certain amount.
                                    • Take a scenic train trip. Taking the train means less stress traveling: nobody has to drive, you don’t have to stop for breaks every few hours, and you can sleep if you need to!
                                    • Save up for a destination vacation. What better time than your anniversary to enjoy the beach at a beautiful resort?
                                    • Explore a new city. Whether you’re on a budget or have a lot saved up, you can have a great time just exploring an unfamiliar town.
                                    • Rent a cabin for a weekend away, in the woods or next to a lake or ocean. If you like the outdoors but can only take so much nature, try glamping.
                                      • Go on a retreat. Yoga retreats, meditation retreats, beautiful natural surroundings … they’re all the rage. Search for centeredness and calm with your partner.
                                      • Spend a day at a food festival. Many cities have fun and affordable food festivals, occasionally based on a theme. Check out your town’s (or a nearby city) calendar for inspiration!

                                      New & Exciting Experiences

                                      1. Go spelunking. Dark, damp, and utterly exciting!
                                      2. Go on a hot air balloon ride. Because the basket is relatively small, this can be a romantic and deeply personal – and yet thrilling –
                                        experience.
                                        • Try sky diving. If you and you S.O. are real thrill-seekers, sky diving can really push you to the edge!
                                        • Explore the underwater world by snorkeling or scuba diving. This may take you far away from where you normally live and work, which is an added bonus.
                                        • Experience white water rafting.
                                        • Drive or hike to the highest spot nearby for a new view of the world. America has tons of beautiful mountains where challenging hikes (or drives) can deliver breathtaking views.
                                        • Take a craft or cooking class. Up your craft skills or food  making skills, and enjoy something new!
                                          • Take a wine and painting class today. These classes are easily found these days and even a beginning painter can create a nice painting. Challenging but relaxing, fun, and you get to go home with some artwork!
                                          • Learn to salsa dance. Dancing is a fantastic way to actively get closer and coordinate physically with one another.
                                            • Visit a nearby festival you’ve always wanted to go to. Have fun and let go with fellow audience-members!
                                            • Spend the day at an amusement park together. Laugh and carry on like teenagers.
                                            • Meet new people! At a restaurant, concert, or class, make it a point to meet new friends. Striking up conversation with someone you don’t know – but with whom you have shared interests – can be an adventurous and rewarding experience.

                                            Whether your budget is big or small, and whether you have a little or a ton of time together, focus on each other. There are tons of options, in terms of location, level of physical activity, and cost. You can make the day special in a way that’s right for you!
