    White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles
    HDi White Chocolate Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

    Makes 18 cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 Tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1.Melt the butter in the microwave. In a medium bowl, whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup granulated sugar together until no brown sugar lumps remain. Whisk in the vanilla and pumpkin until smooth. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, toss together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together with a large spoon or rubber spatula. The dough will be very soft. Fold in white chocolate chips. They may not stick to the dough because of the melted butter, but do your best to have them evenly dispersed in the dough. Cover the dough and chill for 30 minutes or up to 3 days. Chilling the dough is imperative for this recipe.
    3. Take the dough out of the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
    4. Roll the dough into balls, about 1.5 Tablespoons of dough each. Mix together the remaining 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Roll each of the dough balls generously in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and arrange on 2 baking sheets. Slightly flatten the dough balls because the cookies will only slightly spread in the oven. The photo above shows what the cookie dough balls should look like before baking.
    5. Bake for 11-12 minutes or until the edges appear set. The cookies will look very soft in the center. Remove from the oven. If you find that your cookies didn’t spread much at all, flatten them out with the back of a spoon when you take them out of the oven. If desired, press a few white chocolate chips into the tops of the warm cookies. This is only for looks!
    6. Cool cookies on the baking sheets for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. The longer the cookies cool, the even better they taste! The flavor gets stronger and the texture becomes chewier. I usually let them sit, uncovered, for several hours before serving. Chewiness and pumpkin flavor are even stronger on day 2.
    7. Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    Liners 101

    Stop wasting your time and money on the wrong liner!

    HDi Measuring can for liner fit

    Too small= Possible tears and the liner falling into the can. Too large= Wasted liner and wasted money.
    To find the bag width:
    Use ½ of the outer circumference of the container
    To find the bag length:
    Use the height of the container plus ½ of the diameter of the container bottom, plus three inches (for overhang)
    For square or rectangular containers, use the diagonal of the container bottom rather than the diameter.

    HDi Liners

    Now that you know the size, what strength is needed?
    Linear Low Density Bags: A stronger bag more resistant to tearing, recommended for rough objects under tough conditions. Lower load capacity.
    High Density Bags: Can handle a higher load capacity, but are less resistant to tears once punctured. Great for paper, rags, office trash, refuse without rough/sharp edges.

    Joanna Gaines’s Weeknight Salmon with Baby New Potatoes and Dill
    HDi Joanna Gaines’s Weeknight Salmon with Baby New Potatoes and Dill
  • 1 pound baby new potatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets, 1½ inches thick (about 8 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Meyer lemons (or regular lemons)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. In a large bowl, toss together the potatoes, olive oil and ½ teaspoon each of the garlic salt and kosher salt. Arrange the potatoes on one half of a baking sheet. Roast until the potatoes are tender and golden on the bottom, 13 to 15 minutes, turning them once with a spatula during cooking.
    2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the pepper, paprika, onion powder and remaining ½ teaspoon each garlic salt and kosher salt.
    3. Cut two 1-inch-long, ¼-inch-deep slits in the fleshy side of each salmon fillet for the butter and seasonings to seep in. Place the salmon fillets on the empty half of the baking sheet, skin side down. Drizzle the melted butter over the salmon and potatoes. Sprinkle the garlic salt mixture over the top. Cut one lemon in half and squeeze both halves over the entire sheet pan, capturing the seeds in your hand. Bake until the salmon flakes with a fork, 10 to 12 minutes.
    4. Cut the remaining lemon into 4 wedges. Sprinkle the salmon and potatoes with the dill and parsley and serve with the lemon wedges.
