One of my favourite things about Autumn is the food and flavours that suddenly opened to us. No need now for light meals, the coolness this season brings welcomes in warm, hearty meals and spicy seasonings.
Spicy doesn’t mean hot, I am talking about all those spices that replicate that warm feeling. A great example of this is the holy pumpkin spiced latte. No actual pumpkin is used in the drink, but the spices that season the coffee are the reason this drink is much loved when the leaves start to turn.
Last year I gave my hand at making a pumpkin spiced smoothie, now I am turning my hand at this delicious recipe. Pumpkin spiced cookies anyone?
Flavoured with spices and chocolate chips, these are so soft and delicious that they make a cosy night in with a cuppa that even more special.
Pre heat your oven to 180C. Line a tray with grease proof paper.
Sift together your flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt.
Spoon smallish balls of the batter onto your baking tray. You should be able to fit six onto a tray at a time. Pop into the middle of the oven for 10mins.
Leave on a cooling rack until slightly warm.
