  2. Love this!! Is it acceptable if I make this for myself and keep it handy whenever I’m craving pumpkin bread 😉

  3. This is so cute!! I love this idea– and have never thought to do a bread mix because you always see cookies. Pinning.

    1. Thanks, Kristina! I think bread mix is a little easier on the recipient because bread is easier to bake than cookies. 🙂
