CPT: Getting in the Mood for the Fall Season

CPT: Getting in the Mood for the Fall Season

The days starting to get shorter, the leaves falling and changing color, apple picking. These are all things that are usually associated with Fall (or, Autumn - if you prefer). And, what better way to get in the spirit than with a pumpkin-themed dessert?

Technically, we’re a bit early - Fall doesn’t officially start this year until September 22nd. But, we at Directive LOVE the Fall - being located in Central New York has its perks!
