Sometimes it’s really hard to decide on an apple cider doughnut, a pumpkin muffin, a ginger cookie, or anything cinnamon-y when it’s fall. How are we supposed to choose between all of these delicious, warm and cozy fall flavors? The answer is we’re not. Choosing is too difficult, which is why I made this epic skillet cookie that combines all of our favorite autumn flavors in one pan. Make it now, thank me later.
