Enjoy! Caramel Apple Dip Recipe. Apple Pie Cupcake. Bloggers Cheryl of Cupcake Bakeshop and Garrett of Vanilla Garlic are hosting a second cupcake round-up event. I submitted my chocolate espresso cupcakes for the previous round-up back in January. To keep us cupcakers focused, Garrett and Cheryl have chosen the theme of "Re-Invention" for this round-up. Both bloggers are cupcake masters and they re-invent and re-interpret classic desserts into cupcake form on a regular basis. They also love the bounty of autumn and suggested that we should take advantage of the seasonal produce.

Like I do with most blog events I was running late. Even though this is not an original recipe of my own, I hope it still qualifies for the round-up. To make the cupcake more "pie" like, I wanted to top the frosting with a little wedge of baked pie crust as an accent.

In between there were many other pull apart breads . There had been a can of pumpkin puree ( that Damaris had sent ) in my pantry for a time. I had kept it for a pumpkin pie, to celebrate fall days, but those plans were thrown away when I saw this pumpkin bread. Plus, that butter rum glaze was too good to give a miss. As Julie puts it: This sticky, sweet pumpkin pull-apart loaf is irresistible. Since I planned to send it to V’s office on Thursday, I decided to make pull apart muffins (kind of like monkey bread muffins), so that it would be easier for everyone to have a muffin to themselves. {*style:<i> 1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon salt.

First of all, what is sherbet, and how is sherbet different from sorbet? It’s easy to confuse the two. In a nutshell, though, sorbet is a fruit-only frozen concoction.
