Coffee Milk Cookie Sandwiches

Coffee Milk Cookie Sandwiches

After much anticipation, I finally watched Chef’s Table Pastry on Netflix.  I waited and waited and waited for the April release date to finally arrive, and then when it finally did my husband went on a bunch of trips and told me I had to wait for him to watch!  So here we are.  We finally watched!

Shipyard Pumpkinhead Iced Cookies

You wouldn’t know it from this heat, but fall is almost here! Fall is my favorite time of year.  And to be honest, (unpopular opinion coming…) I’m not a fan of the pumpkin stuff.  I don’t drink the PSLs, I don’t eat pumpkin pie, I just really don’t care for pumpkin anything.  But Shipyard Pumpkinhead is a super popular fall beer here in Boston.  And it’s served in a glass with a cinnamon sugar rim.
