See above picture if you need a good laugh! I got this recipe for Jumbo Pumpkin Cookies from my Mother-in-Law almost ten years ago, and I have never attempted to make them before. The ugly truth: I am AWFUL at baking. Not only am I awful at baking, I’m also really bad at reading a recipe. Even though I’m aware of that, somehow I still manage to mess it up. I have pretty much come to terms with the fact that I’m not a good baker, but I’m still going to try! This time – and every time – I thought maybe I’d get it right. I’m a mom now, I must be a little domesticated, right?? WRONG. And while the cookies taste good, they are uh-gly. BUT THAT’S OKAY. It’s not like I’m catering an event!
I am, however, ashamed to admit that as I was reaching across to frost the cookies my 8 month pregnant belly dipped in to one of them. Whoopsie! Here’s the recipe:

Ha! Nailed it! GAH I can’t believe I’m even sharing these pictures. I’m actually dying laughing looking at them. I think I should probably just stick to store bought frosting… or better yet, leave the baking to my MIL! But I promise, they really do taste good! Please share a pic if you decide to make these, they’ve GOT to be better looking than mine! Thanks for reading! XO – S
