Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Cookie Bars!

Phew what a week, school started Tuesday for the boys and we are all still trying to get used to the new schedules. The earlier bedtime has been the trickiest. I have to admit, it’s been 7 years since I’ve had 4 hours to myself in the mornings. I hardly know what to do with myself, ok that was a joke. It’s great and I’m finding plenty to do. Once September hits, I seem to go into “Fall” mode.

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti. Pretzel Bread. Baking bread, whether as an occupation or as a hobby, is extremely satisfying.

Pretzel Bread

Bakers have almost complete control over their bread, requiring little more than some very simple ingredients, time and the willingness to get his or her hands a little messy. Pretzel bread is not quite a simple as flat bread or dinner rolls, but the loaves come out of the oven with a deep, brown pretzel crust and a slightly sweet, tender center. This particular recipe should be treated as a base to which other ingredients may be added.

Cinnamon and extra brown sugar can create a sweet pretzel, or garlic and other spices can create a more savory pretzel. The loaves can be baked into mini-loaves, sandwich loaves or just cut into chunks and served as a snack. But now for the bread. Makes : 2 small loaves. Prep time : 3-4 hours (including rise time). Ingredients : Iced Tea with Cider, Mint and Honey. In the game of food, you win or you wash... Bake It in a Cake & Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes With Cinnamon Cream Cheese...

Bake It in a Cake & Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes With Cinnamon Cream Cheese...

That’s not very surprising when you consider that pumpkin pie is the second most popular pie in America. To save time, you can make the miniature pies up to 2 days in advance — just store them in the refrigerator until you’re ready to make the cupcakes. The pies can also be prepared quickly with premade pie crust—as I’ve said, there’s no shame in taking shortcuts. Though they sound like the perfect Thanksgiving dessert (and they are), I’ve done plenty of research and am happy to confirm that they taste just as good at any time of year.
