What has happened to TV shows? In the “olden” days TV shows used to have theme songs and openings. Everyone knows “Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your naaame do do do do and they’re always glad you came” and what about the original 90210 “snap”, “I got in one lil fight and my mom got scared and said “You’re moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air”, the annoying show from Dawson’s Creek and the gang frolicking on the beach. Now you get a 5 second intro that is boring and unoriginal. No cool songs, no frolicking just the title of the show. It’s not like the intro has been replaced by more show, just more commericals.
Unless you are watching HBO, they know how to do an intro.
Just a thought, but I totally want my own theme song. Then every time I want into a room I can play it on my ipod, have dancers appear from outta nowhere. Like a theme song flash mob everywhere I go.
I can’t decide what my theme song would be though. I need a song about butter and sugar and flip flops. Somebody should really write that song. I would buy it. What would your theme song be?
Anyways I made these Pumpkin Cookies because I had a can of pumpkin staring at me for like a month and I needed it to stop glaring at me every time I opened the cupboard. I’m all about glaze lately so I had to put a glaze on these too.
The glaze was a good thing. These cookies were fluffy and cakey but not flavor packed. The texture was there for sure but then you add that maple cinnamon glaze and they are elevated to something worth making. So the cookies with glaze are great, the cookie without glaze alright, glaze by itself awesome. If you wanted a cakey cookie with a light pumpkin flavor and without the glaze I would bump up the spices.
Pumpkin Cookies- makes 32 – adapted from allrecipes
1/2 c butter – room temp
1 c granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg – room temp
1 c pumpkin puree
2 1/4 c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tbs orange zest
Glaze – from howto-simplify
1 tbs melted butter
1 c confectioners sugar
2 tbs pure maple syrup
1 tbs cinnamon
1-2 tbs water
Preheat oven to 375 F and move rack to middle of the oven. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
In the bowl of a standing mixer cream together butter, sugar and orange zest until fluffy (a couple minutes).
Beat in egg, vanilla and pumpkin until just combined.
Stop the mixer add your dry ingredients and mix on low until just combine.
With a small cookie scoop drop cookies onto the parchment paper. The dough will be sticky and they don’t spread much so you can put them pretty close together.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until the tops spring back or a toothpick comes out clean.
Mix sugar, butter, maple syrup, cinnamon together, slowly add water until it’s a slightly runny consistency.
Once the cookies have cooled, using a spoon slowing run glaze over the cookies.
Will last about 3 days but not any more in a air tight container.
