There’s really not much to say about these little delights except: You. should. make. them.
TODAY. On the day that is now. Ohh, now would be even better!
And you should sit outside by a fire (since it’s actually getting cool enough for that, yay!) and drink some hot coffee or cider while you eat them. Just sayin’.
I’m ready for fall to be in full swing, can you tell? :)
