If you're one of the people who can't stand pumpkin spice, this post is for you!  I actually love pumpkin, but sometimes I get a little tired of that flavor for fall.  Two of my favorite flavors for fall are apples and pecan pie.  So, I decided to join in Mars' Bake In the Fun sweepstakes by combining my favorites in a delicious treat, using only a few simple ingredients.


I was thrilled to see all the seasonal goodies out for baking on my recent trip to Walmart.  Everything I needed for this recipe was easy to find!


This recipe makes a fluffy, flavorful cookie perfect for fall!

Now, even though it's fall, it's still super hot here in Phoenix!  It was 102 degrees yesterday!  So even though the baking cookies made me think of falling leaves and sweater weather, in reality I had to drink an ice-cold beverage with my cookies to cool off!  I love Snapple® Apple.


I'm so jealous of everyone who is actually experiencing a real fall right now.  Send some cool weather my way!
