That beautiful yellow and orange and red and golden time of the year.
There are trees like this one to marvel at!
And pretty leaves that look like magic.
It feels orange everywhere you go, and I love it.
Fall is also the time of pumpkin spice everything. Seriously, read this article to see what I mean.
Pumpkin pie though – that’s a classic.
I added pumpkin spice chocolate chips to make it extra pumpkin-y!
Creamy pumpkin filling flavoured with warm spices and baked in a graham crust until golden and slightly wobbly and perfect.
A slice of warm pumpkin pie is probably the food equivalent of fall.
So here’s the fastest and easiest way to make some and get that pumpkin-spicy goodness in your mouth :D
