Last week I mentioned how good a Vanilla Speculoos Cookie would be with a Pumpkin Pie Spice Latte. Well I am here to tell you that it is a match made in heaven. This homemade pumpkin pie spice latte’s subtle pumpkin flavor complements the Speculoos spice cookie perfectly. I just polished off one of each on the front porch. What a lovely fall afternoon indulgence. And, it was so easy to make. With my method, it’s all done in the microwave. I think it turned out every bit as good as Starbuck’s but I didn’t have to make the 45 minute trek there. This is so easy, I just bet you’ll be doing the same thing, even if your Starbucks is much closer.
Fall is finally in the air. I think it is my favorite season. It has finally cooled off enough so that I can do some baking. These Vanilla Speculoos Cookies are perfect for fall. They are a bit lighter than my Speculoos Biscuits. A little less gingerbready, more of what you would think of with anything pumpkin. Perfect with a pumpkin spice latte.
This recipe for Spicy Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken was inspired by Fit Slow Cooker Queen’s Instagram post for Slow Cooker Cilantro-Lime Chicken. My recipe is just for the chicken because I wanted to make a big batch to be able to freeze. You could certainly add corn and black beans like she does if you like. I like the idea of adding some onion and bell peppers to bump up the low carb vegetables. For now though, this recipe is just for the chicken.
