spring pumpkins

i know that pumpkins and spring and heat don’t really go together, but since heat is always part of life down here, i’ve come to think of pumpkin as season-neutral. there is also ginger in these cookies, and ginger is tropical so there you go. but i still try not to overdo it because i like to pretend there is fall down here. perhaps i’ll impose a no pumpkin for july-august rule and then when the pumpkin products and recipes start popping up it will feel like its been ages since i’ve had any.
