If you read often you probably know where I do the majority of my blogging. I am sitting at Panera drinking an awesomely good pumpkin latte writing about pumpkin chex mix...told you I love me some pumpkin.
(I love it here, but Panera probably hates to see me coming...I stay forever...this blogging stuff takes a lot of time...and I just guzzle the tea the whole time...ha...money saving at its best!)
Anyways, my mom brought me over a bag of this wonderfully, addictive stuff recently. It is almost like pumpkin crack. Believe me, I wouldn't really know, but you know people say that about Chipotle...so I thought I would steal, or borrow, the saying...because it is addictive!!
If you get a chance make sure you try this recipe out. Fall is going by way to fast, before you know it we will be so past pumpkin season and on to cookie season!

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
