Fall baking!

Gingerbread and Nikole's feathers

I wish I could slow down and enjoy the fall season a little more. The leaves are changing and dropping so quickly, but my weekly allotment of free-time is shrinking in proportion to the assignments that are piling up.

Nonetheless, I'm still taking some time to relax and bake my favorite fall treats.
I finally put my new Herriott Grace feather cookie cutter to good use making gingerbread cookies. I wait all year to break out the gingerbread (it doesn't really feel right to me in the spring or summer), it's my favorite kind of cookie!

Mini Pumpkin pie

This is one of the pumpkin pies I ate for breakfast.

Lastly, this is my favorite hot chocolate in the city.
It's from La Merceria, all they do is steam milk and break off a piece of Lindt chocolate and melt it in. So simple and perfect with some of their delicious alfajores.

This made me realize that I don't have a "best hot chocolate in the city!" I never buy it! I like it at home, I guess! With nice handmade marshmallows, yum.

(Still totally addicted to David's pumpkin chai, though!)
