I made these cookie bars. It’s like baking a piece of autumn in your oven. It’s that intense.
The smell of these delicious bars in the oven brought back childhood memories and a warm fuzzy feeling. Is this post getting a cheesy? Probably.
The smell of pumpkin and cinnamon for some reason remind me of going for walks during the late autumn afternoons with my Dad. He made jokes, talked to me about life, and just enjoyed spending some quality time together. So besides these cookies smelling and tasting absolutely delicious, they also made me smile. :)
The only alteration I made to this recipe was excluding the ginger. I am not much of a fan and thought it will be all right out to leave out. I love the turn out but if you enjoy ginger you should probably add it in.
What foods or smells bring back old memories for you?
