well, hello fall treats.

like so many of you.
i wait for the fall season to greet me each year.
simply for the sincere joy of over-indulging in pumpkin goodness.
{i may or may not have already had three pumpkin spice lattes this season}
i just savor the spicy scents. tastes. warmth. that fall always promises to bring.

so tonight i treat you to the first of many fave autumnal treats to come. 

now. i totally blame one of my besties for this little treat tonight.
i give all of you permission to totally indulge in this treat & blame her for it. too.
she made us do it.
big. bad. treat. eating. bestie.

we went walking yesterday in the not-so-crisp-florida-fall-evening-air.
& spent a good part of our time chatting about pumpkin treats.
pumpkin milkshakes & pumpkin lattes.
pumpkin bars & pumpkin cookies.
pumpkin anything & pumpkin everything. 
oh. and the twelve cookies she indulged in the night prior.

i don't know about you.
but if someone else is bad on their healthy eating plan.
that gives me total & uninhibited permission to be even worse.
{i tend to be a one-upper on treat eating skills}
hence. my evening was spent baking. eating. & enjoying these
pumpkin & white chocolate chunk cookies. 
best. bad. decision. ever. 

these cookies are just a breeze to bake.
the perfect mix of pumpkin & white chocolate. 
not too sweet. & terrificly cake-like.
{so crispy-cookie-lovers steer clear}
these are crumbly. soft. & just downright delish.
simply divine & totally lovie approved. 

and what is best.
you likely have all of these ingredients in your pantry right now.
late night cookie party? i won't judge you. 

grab your pencils. ladies. you will want to write this down.

2 1/4 cup flour {gluten free if you wish}
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon {i added a bit more}
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp salt

mix all dry ingredients in a bowl & set aside.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar {packed}

cream butter & sugar.
then slowly add in dry mixture.
then add the following.

1 can pumpkin
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla {i added a bit more}
2 cups white choc chunks {naturally. i added a bit more}

using an ice cream scoop. 
scoop heaping spoonfuls of cookie dough onto 
a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. 

bake for 12 little minutes in a piping hot oven set at 350.

the quickest & sweetest way to welcome fall into your homes.
