It's here! The Ween! Trick or treaters are literally coming to my door right now, Halloween is playing on the TV, and I'm baking a pumpkin pie. It's awesome.
In honor of Halloween this is a "brownie" recipe modeled after one of my favorite Halloween treats, caramel apples!

I have loved it ever since I was a kid. I don't know why...spooky stuff, it's awesome! Sure Christmas is the obvious winner in the holiday favorites game, but Halloween...gosh it's close. Candy, spookiness, staying up late, tricks, costumes...scary movies of COURSE. Love it.
Frankenberry was even my favorite cereal! If any of you out there were 80's kids maybe you recognize this cereal:
It was basically neon pink cardboard flakes with strawberry crack-mallows, and I'm not sure how it ever passed as "part of a balanced breakfast"...in my opinion it's up there with that whole "the greatest trick the devil ever played convincing the world he didn't exist" thing.
Anyway my point is...monsters.

So I dunno if maybe you've picked up on a theme yet, but I really like to make pumpkin stuff in October. It just seems right to me. That said, you'll never see me eating pumpkin pie before November. I mean...I'm not a savage.

To me, nothing is more perfect on a chilly fall evening than a nice warm dinner. And of course, chicken pot pie is the mother of all comfort foods.
But...nobody every said it was particularly photogenic. Then again, when it tastes that good...no one ever said it needed to be. I did the best I could, and I think that if you're a fan, these pictures will look delicious to you.
If not...well. Sloppy may or may not be fitting here. Anyway.

So maybe you know about my love affair with Black and White cookies from this, and also this.
I'm pretty sure I've enumerated in many ways how delicious these are, the amazing blending of flavors they offer, and even probably gone so far as to wax philosophical about how they represent the American spirit. Whatever.
This time I made them pumpkin-y.

How is your October going? Mine has been fantastic. I'm burning my cinnamon, fall flavored candles, I'm enjoying the brisk weather, and my scary movie-watching has escalated to crazy person standards. I've been watching one each day in the month of October, as many other weirdos are wont to do, and it's been a lot of fun.
I haven't been baking quite as much as I ought to be, but I'm keeping busy. I did manage to find time somewhere between "Insidious" and "The Pact" to bake these up.
