Did you guys catch Martha Stewart on Oprah last week? That girl cracks me up. Near the end of the show, after making the most delicious grilled cheese sandwiches known to man, she gifted O with a huge gift basket filled with crafting products, homemade apricot preserves and a tiny jar of honey extracted from her own bees. It's like she wants SNL to do another skit about her.
Despite sometimes feeling like Martha is from another planet, one where women grow seven types of lettuce in their backyards and handcraft their wedding gowns out of doilies, most of the recipes from her magazine, website and cookbooks are actually pretty down-to-earth and utterly do-able. Take these pumpkin whoopie pies, for example. Just the fact that she says whoopie makes Martha feel more like a citizen of Earth.
All of fall's favorites represented--cinnamon, allspice and ginger.
Pumpkin, brown sugar and vanilla...it's starting to smell good in here!
Drop cookie dough in even amounts since they'll be pressed into little sandwiches later.
I didn't have any official pastry bags around, so I just used a ziploc and cut a hole in the end to fill the cookies. It was a mistake. My arm is still sticky two days later.
These are perfect for any Halloween gathering, fall feast, or as I can attest...breakfast. Is that wrong?
Continuing Halloween Week, tomorrow I'll show you how I've decked out my apartment for the holiday. It's super scary...and not just because of the growing mound of clothes beside my bed.
