Pumpkin Spice Obsessed: Single-Serving Pumpkin Spice Microwave Cheesecake

Pumpkin spice. That’s probably the first thing I would think of if you said “fall.” Seriously, America is pumpkin spice crazy (and I am proud to admit that I am too)! Pumpkin spice everything, from the quintessential latte, to the humble bagel, to the sweet little donut, and to any and every cookie around. Pumpkin spice has contaminated everything (and yes, go to the store; I repeat: everything), and I couldn’t be happier!  But I’m going off topic. So let me swerve back on track.

We Love You Trader Joe’s: Molten Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter Microwave Mug Cake

Just yesterday I raided Trader Joe’s of all the pumpkin foods they have for pumpkin season! And the greatest thing ever created I finally found (I know, I’m pretty behind in the world’s advances). It was like it was slow motion. The wind blew in my hair, an angelic light made my face glow. It was just me and … Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter? Yes. Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter. For those of you who don’t know (but I’m pretty sure you do know), Trader Joe’s cookie butter is like heaven. It is sweet, creamy and just plain dreamy. But they outdid themselves. Trader Joe’s has sprinkled that pumpkin spice magic all over their already perfect cookie butter and made it perhaps one of the best things that will ever hit your tongue.

And naturally, as soon as I laid my eyes on this Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter, the first thing that popped into my mind was “mug cake.” So here it is, Molten Pumpkin Spice Cookie Butter Microwave Mug Cake.
