Girls Night : Pumpkin

Hey Everyone!

With Halloween right around the corner, we thought it would be fun to show you one of our favorite facial mask and desert reciepe in honor of October.

One of our favorite Fall Facial Mask comes from Bethenny Frankel!

Made with pumpkin and honey, this mask will not only help slow down aging skin, but will also cleanse and hydrate for a fresh, dewy glow.

 What you will Need: 

2 cups canned pumpkin

4 tablespoons Greek yogurt

4 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Directions:

Simply mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Once that is done, its time for the fun part. Make sure you wash your hands before applying to your face! Dive in and smooth all over the face! Like Bethenny recommends, apply over wood or tile floors! We too don’t want to be responsible for stain carpet! Once you have an even amount applied, Leave on for 10 min, then rinse the mask off!

Don’t just stop at the face mask!

Make a fun girls night in by doing a little baking as well!

We recommend using the rest of your canned pumpkin to make these tasty cookies.

What could be better than pumpkin AND chocolate?!

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

 Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Whisk together pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla and egg in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Add the flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir until combined.

3. Stir in the chocolate chips.

4. Take large tablespoons full of dough and drop onto cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. When finished, try to shape the dough to resemble a cookie. The dough will be sticky and wet and hard to shape. The cookies dough should be round and flat and smooth, resembling close to the finished baked product because the cookies don’t spread much during baking and will rise up. It helps to work with the dough if your hands are freshly washed and slightly damp.

5. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes until cookies are firm to the touch and can be moved off silpat mat without bottom sticking.
