Carrot Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Cinnamon tends to give me the distinct feeling that fall is in full swing. Yeah, apple and pumpkin flavors do as well, but if there is cinnamon in something, I get an autumn vibe. These cookies are spiced with cinnamon and are helping me ease into the cooler months.

I made these cookies before I went on vacation and had the audacity to think I would actually blog while in Florida. That obviously didn’t happen. I stuffed the cookies into my suitcase and gave them to my family when I arrived. I never saw them again and took it as a compliment.

Now that I’m home I have accepted that it’s time to break out my gloves, scarves and sweaters; I will begin to embrace fall and all of its flavors.

Let’s begin the soup making.

The apple picking and pie baking.

Let’s begin with these cinnamon-laced Carrot Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

    Cinnamon just about screams fall and comfort to me also! I love it. As I’m sure I would love these cookies. They wouldn’t stand a chance here.
