It’s my favorite time of year once again- autumn is in the air and the season of harvests, festivals and spectacular changes are upon us. I think I love this season so much because it embraces my need for change. While most people avoid change at all cost, I crave the need to mix things up. Autumn is all about change. Change in temperature, change in clothing, a change in the colors of leaves and a change in my morning routine. As the weather gets cooler it’s a time where I take a moment to pause and savor the richness of Autumn. Quiet mornings of reflection are somehow more awe inspiring in the fall with pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and aroma of rich, warm coffee.
As soon as fall arrives I start baking batches of these easy and delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I’m 100% in the autumn sate of mind and there is no turning back. Pumpkin cookies, making Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Caffe Latte K-Cup at home, harvest scented candles, apple pie, chunky sweaters, boots and my fall inspired Pinterest boards light my soul on fire. This truly is the best time of the year.
Mornings aren’t my favorite. But when you wake up to the perfect pair, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and coffee, you know it’s going to be a great start to the day. These cookies truly are the best way to start the day, especially on a crisp cool morning. I like to snuggle up with a good book and take a few moments to really savor and enjoy everything around me.
It’s a good thing my kids love these sweet, soft and chewy cookies too, because I make them all season long. We can’t get enough of them. They are so easy to make and I can whip up a batch in just a moments notice. I’ve been making these cookies for years for neighbors, teachers and friends and they are always a huge hit.
Paired with your favorite Starbucks Fall Blend, Pumpkin Spice Caffe Latte K-Cup® pods, or Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa it’s easy to savor every sip and flavor of fall. Make a batch of these yummy cookies and then head to the Walmart Hub to take a short quiz to get your personalized flavor recommendations for your morning coffee. And, with the Starbucks Reward offer it’s even easier to savor fall flavors, get 75 Stars when you buy (3) qualifying Starbucks products at Walmart.
So this Autumn, bake a batch of these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, embrace change, take a moment to slow down, and savor everything this season has to offer.
