I call it tree porn because all of a sudden overnight the trees are naked. They have have shed the reason fall makes you glad you are not blind and become hideous gray naked trunks with a thick layer of their former beauty crumpled into leaf crumbs on the ground looking like someone forgot to sweep the forest floor. I am devastated.
Liv and I had no choice but to move on. We decided to make the most of fall by making two fallish treats, chunky applesauce and molasses cookies. We used the molasses cookie recipe from ourbestbites.com and we are converted. Completely. Supreme quintessential fall cookie delight. If you want to get your own cookie testimony then try it out for yourselves. Experiment upon the recipe.
