I am just returning from a sudden out-of-town trip and my house and children are overloaded with needs I must attend to. So in that vein, let me simply state that if you need a midweek pick-me-up, these quick and delicious treats are for you. I love the ease of bars versus cookies and this chocolate chip variation manages to be chewy, buttery, studded with the perfect amount of chocolate…and utterly fantastic.
Caramel Apple Scones Caramel apples aren’t a big deal in my house for a few very-good-reasons.
1/2 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup cornstarch 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg pinch of salt 7 to 8 cups of peeled, sliced apples (I like Granny Smith & Braeburn) 1/2 cup dulce de leche (canned or homemade ) 2 Tablespoons apple cider 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract double crust for 9-inch pie (purchased or homemade) egg white mixed with 1 teaspoon of water coarse sugar for top, optional
These caramel apple cheesecake bars made their way around the food blogging sphere not to long ago and they certainly caught my attention!
Be still, my beating heart.

I understand that when a website but 5 11/12 years old boasts not one or two but eleven brownie recipes that it’s possible, perhaps, or at least worth considering that the brownie category: it’s been exhausted. The brownie beat reporter can retire.
