CELEBRATE FALL WITH PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP BRIOCHE



The first day of fall snuck up far too quickly for my liking this year. Each year I try to do something special for the family to usher in this special season. With little time, but the itch to create, I came up with this delicious pumpkin chocolate chip brioche. The house smelled heavenly from the autumn spices, and the girls could hardly wait for the molten chocolate chips to cool before snagging one! Fortunately, I was able to squirrel-away a few to share with friends, teachers, and neighbors, before they were all gone!


And, just for fun, here are the "Happy Autumn" gift tags that I made for the occasion using some French sheet music (Aquarelles d'Atumne:  Autumn Watercolors) and a vintage squirrel background from The Graphics Fairy.  I got a kick out of the phonetic similarities between the French word for 'watercolors', Aquarelles, and the French word for 'squirrels', écureuill.


Enjoy!

  3. First of all, I read Squirrel Nutkin when I was 5 and became enchanted with squirrels ever since, so thanks for the images. Second, I love chocolate chip pumpkin muffins, and your brioche sounds even more heavenly than that!
