These cookies are a holiday must make! Pumpkin spice pudding cookies with white chocolate centers

I’ve been sitting here trying to decide if I should post this recipe and if I do how to break the news to you that it’s another pumpkin recipe. I feel like I’ll be blocking punches for posting about pumpkin again, but then again, ’tis the season, right? Right?! Come on guys, it’s just a cookie. And it really doesn’t taste all that pumpkin-y (that’s a word. I’m pretty sure it is.) plus it is stuffed with white chocolate. Just say the name and I know you’ll be on board with me, Pumpkin Spice White Chocolate Cookies. And only use one white chocolate disc or it wont melt down properly. Ok, now doesn’t that sound delightful? We are having a little blogger cookie exchange again and I just couldn’t resist busting these out. Make sure you scroll down for the rest of the cookies!

These cookies are a holiday must make! Rolo stuffed Pumpkin spice pudding cookies with white chocolate centers

Ahhhh, delightful. Isn’t that such a lovely word? We’ve been laughing about the way people say things lately and that word is just awesome. This “delightful” cookie is actually adapted from Sweet Treats and More Rolo Stuffed Pumpkin Cookies which are the Have you had them? My gosh they are good. Hop over and pin them right now before you forget.

White Chocolate Stuffed Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies!

Anyway, let’s get on with the funny stuff. Our kids have a few words that they say incorrectly which helped us discover that us adults are a little ridiculous as well. The oldest still calls guacamole, “Mockamolee” and the youngest says, “Weehooo” instead of, “Woohoo” when having fun. We don’t correct either as it’s just too cute. In fact, the youngest also told Cade his “red was neck” twice tonight without even realizing she was saying it wrong.

And then there’s Cade and I. Do I even admit what we have messed up? I was pregnant, PREGNANT, in case you didn’t catch that, and pregnancy gives permission for all sorts of mistakes. Anyway, I was pregnant and taking a test in my final semester of school. I came home and told Cade the only question I got wrong was something about a “para-dig-em” or as you may call it, “Paradigm”. Yup. Then today Cade, and he claims he was “tired” read a sign as, “Save-uhg”. Confused? I was too. It was SAVAGE. BAHAHAHAHAHA!! I almost died laughing. Obviously we both need a night off with these pumpkin spice white chocolate cookies. And in case you did take the time to read this loverly post, please do tell us any funny words you or your kids have said!
