Reading all the entries for the Starbucks giveaway has me thinking of all the yummy fall coffee drinks. Last year I found this recipe and made it for our Ladies’ Cookie Exchange. Everyone loved it. I multiplied everything by four to have a big batch. And the smell was outrageous.
I have another amazing giveaway coming tomorrow. You don’t want to miss this one. I am so excited! If you haven’t entered to win the Starbuck’s gift card and beautifully designed card from Melissa at Kaufman’s Cottage there is still time. Just click here.
