I love pumpkin. I also love having pumpkin puree on hand at all times. I have loved pumpkin flavored foods since I was first introduced to the magic of pumpkin cookies. Growing up I never really liked pumpkin pie and so I assumed that I just didn't like pumpkin. Then one day I had a chance to try a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. I realized that I LOVE the flavor of pumpkin, I just wasn't every crazy about the texture of pumpkin pie.
Once I knew that it wasn't the flavor as much as the texture that I had a problem with it opened a world of opportunities for me to enjoy.
