Fall only means one thing in girls ages 15-25 eyes: pumpkin spiced latte. Seriously, the fuss about it takes over my life: Instagram–or all social media for that matter, buzz on the streets, & don’t even think about standing in line at Starbucks as it’s all you’ll be hearing. So it may come as a surprise to you all that a 23 year old, pretty basic person such as myself has never even tried the drink. Yet even though I’ve never had it & I cannot hear one more person talk about it, I do like it for one reason: all this talk keeping it so fresh in my mind inspired my latest cookie creation! Enter the pumpkin spice nutella stuffed cookies!
After all, what’s a better basic pairing than pumpkin spice in fall & nutella? Seriously, nothing. There is absolutely nothing more basic. BUT! Good news is, there’s nothing more delicious either! These cookies took me by surprise; seriously I tried one & then look down & oops, they were all gone! Their solid exterior filled with a creamy center of both nutella & batter makes them the perfect bite. Topped off with some more fall flavorings, this is one cook you better make asap as you’ll be wanting it all fall long.
