Hi Friends. I watched "The Sound of Music" last night with Carrie Underwood performing the broadway version. The music and scenery completely get me in a holiday mood and I enjoyed watching it. As I watched it I checked twitter and realized there were many tweeters/viewers who had never seen it before. It is based on the von Trapp family and if you've not seen it, well, you can watch it tonight with Julie Andrews. If you're a fan of singing, love stories and stories of war you will like it. It's helpful to know the story is based on a real family but separating fact from fiction about the von Trapp's can be looked at in the archives. Anyhow, with all the singing about "My favorite things" I had a cookie craving and needed to bake.
This recipe is a version of the civilized cavemen pumpkin spice cookie and is probably better with chocolate chips but since I had none I improvised with coconut flakes. The chocolate chips probably make a huge difference. The house filled with the scent of spicy pumpkin cookies baking in the oven and it was relaxing. Hope you have a great day!
