Thanksgiving + Fall Cookies

November 24, 2020 in cookies - No Comments

So my husband and I moved from Portland, Oregon to Charlotte, North Carolina in August, and, as one might imagine when moving, one of the biggest differences is the weather. Fall in the Pacific Northwest is beautiful, but short. The leaves change color and then fall off the trees in…
