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

    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?

          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

                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

                            The Importance of Making a Camping Checklist

                            Camping can be hard work, but it’s the preparation that’s even harder. There are usually a lot of things to do in order to make sure that you and your family or friends have the perfect camping experience. But sometimes you might get to your destination and discover that you have left out one or more crucial things.

                            There is no dispute that preparation and organization for a camping trip can be quite overwhelming, but if it is done right, you would see at the end of the day, that it was worth the stress. This is why it is important to ensure optimum planning and execution. For this to be possible, it is advised that in addition to a to-do-list, you should have a camping checklist to remind you of every important detail.

                            Why You Should Have a Camping Checklist

                            Creating a camping checklist makes for a happy and always ready camper. It also prevents mishaps.  A proper camping checklist should include every essential thing you would need for your camping activities, organized into various categories such as shelter, clothing, kitchen, food, personal items, first aid kit, informational items, etc. These categories should be organized by importance. However, it is important that you should not list more than you can handle or more than is necessary for your outdoor adventure.

                            Camping checklists vary depending on the kind of camping and outdoor activities involved. You should not go on the internet and compile a list of just any camping checklist. Of course, you can research camping checklists, but you have to put into consideration the kind of camping you are doing. It could be backpacking, camping with kids, canoe camping, social camping, etc. You have to be specific and take note of those things that are specifically important to your trip, and those things which are generally needed in all camping trips no matter the kind of camping being embarked on.

                            Here are some tips to help you prepare for your next camping trip.

                            1. First off, you must have found the perfect campground that best suits your outdoor adventure. If you haven’t, then you should. Sites like Reserve America can help you find and reserve a campsite.
                            2. Find or create a good camping checklist that would best suit your kind of camping adventure.
                            3. Make sure the whole family is involved in making out the camping check list or downloading a proper checklist that reflects the families need and ticking off the boxes of already accomplished tasks.
                            4. You should make out or download a proper checklist months ahead of your trip to make room for adjustments and to avoid too much excitement and the addition of unnecessary things.
                            5. Checkout Camping Hacks that would make for a more fun camping experience and prepare you for different situations.
