Once the batter was scooped and topped with as much streusel as possible it was time to bake and enjoy!

I love fall!
The last few days my friend and I have been all over Dollar Tree and Michaels buying stuff to craft with for our “Pintrest craft day” and it turned into lots of fall decorating and fall decorated sugar cookies.
