I don’t typically make a lot of Halloween themed baked treats. I never get invited to Halloween Parties (do childless adults have those?) and you can’t really give away homemade stuff for trick-or-treaters. This year I did see these cute witches hats though, so I thought that I would make them just to giveaway. They are just sugar cookies with Hershey’s Kisses on top, then prettied up a bit. They are small, so just a bit of a witch, so to speak.
Well, it’s getting closer to that food extravaganza that the US calls Thanksgiving. I really like Thanksgiving because while I know there are other things behind it, it is mostly about the food. So, if you are planning to feed a crowd and you are the one pegged with making dessert, this recipe might be for you. It feeds +/- 24 and is made in a half sheet (18 x 13 inch) pan. That’s pretty big. It also weighed about 8 pounds. 🙂 but it was delicious — the spices gave it a nice warm taste.
So, this is what happens when you can’t decide on whether to make apple pie, cinnamon rolls or muffins…. you make these hybrid Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Muffins. They take all day but they may just be one of the best things on earth.
More apple recipes! 🙂 Yes, ’tis the season and seeing I love baking with apples so much, I thought that I would make this tart. Also, my dad will be here this evening, and he loves these French custard-style pies / tarts a lot. I browned the butter for the custard first, which gives it a lovely nutty flavor. Yum!
It’s apple picking season in New England. Definitely an autumn activity. I didn’t go this year, but I did find some amazing little heirloom apples at the Farmer’s Market last weekend. I love little apples. Not necessarily crab apple sized, but 2-3 inches. Perfect for snacking and baking. You don’t need heirloom apples for this recipe (plain old granny smith will do), so don’t think that you have to find a farmer’s market near you to make them — though in general, I think that you should always go to farmer’s markets if you can. These blondies are a little fragile, so be careful when cutting.
