Trash Compactor Reminder
It has been brought to our attention that items are being left outside of the trash compactor or being put inside the compactor that do not belong causing the compactor to break and not be operable to our residents. This causes the trash to be backed up and look very unsightly. If you notice the trash compactor isn’t working properly and the trash is piling up after hours please call 843-379-5110 option 2 and leave a message on the emergency maintenance so that we can resolve the issue. Please take any large bulky items to the local dump that is located right up the street on Castle Rock Road. Thank you for your cooperation.
Just a friendly reminder, that we’ve been noticing a pet waste issue around our community. Please be reminded that we do fine $60 for anyone who is caught not picking up after their pet. We want everyone here at Ashton Pointe to enjoy their home. Let’s work together on keeping the community looking beautiful!
Fall Recipe: White Chocolate Pumpkin Snicker doodles
- 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup (50g) packed light or dark brown sugar
- 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar, divided
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 Tablespoons (86g) pumpkin puree (use the rest of the can in any of these recipes)
- 1 and 1/2 cups (190g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice1
- 1/2 cup (90g) 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 days2. Chilling is mandatory.
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 the cookies for 8-10 minutes. The cookies will look very soft and underbaked. Keeping them in the oven for longer may dry them out. Remove from the oven and press a few more white chocolate chips onto the tops, if desired. If you find that your cookies didn't spread much at all, flatten them out when you take them out of the oven.
6. Allow the cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to a wire rack. The longer the cookies cool, the chewier they will be. I let them sit out for at least 1 hour before enjoying. I find that their chewiness and pumpkin flavor is more prominent on day 2.
7. Make ahead tip: Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week. You can make the cookie dough and chill it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Allow to come to room temperature and continue with step 3. Baked cookies freeze well up to three months. Unbaked cookie dough balls freeze well up to three months. Bake frozen cookie dough balls for an extra minute, no need to thaw.
