The Brownie That Will Change Your Life Let me start off by saying that viewer discretion is advised for today’s post. OK now with the story that preludes possibly the greatest brownie I have ever sunk my teeth in thus far in my life. Last Saturday Mrs. I knew time was tight and I didn’t want to spend all night Friday night to prep a dessert.

Mini Fruit Pies | Simple Organized Living I love pie. I love eating pie, I love making pie, I love nearly all vartities of pie! The only problem with pie is that the crust always seems to get soggy before we can eat it all — there are just 2 of us you know. So today — as I was contemplating whether or not I should make a pie (and knowing that my husband would definitly want me to make a pie) — I decided to try something new… … mini pies! I figured that if I made mini pies, I could make as many as we needed and I could customize the filling so everyone got their favorite pie. Not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner? Anyway, mini pies are extremely easy and take less than 20 minutes to bake (half that of most full pies) Ingredients: Pie Crust Dough — I used store bought refrigerated crust but feel free to use homemadeFilling — choose your favorite pie fillings and make mini batches of each one (or use canned filling) Directions: Use a biscuit cutter to create mini pie crusts — cut as many or as few as you want What is your favorite pie?
Cheesecake Bars I was in the mood for something cold and lip-smackingly sweet. Something I could sink my teeth into. Something to maintain my weight. So I made this treat with a few of my favorite things. Cheesecake. Chocolate. and these cookies. If you ever fly Delta, then you’ve probably had them before. They’re a crunchy, no-frills, sans chocolate type of cookie. So I thought they would be great to use for the cheesecake crust. Throw the cookies into a food processor and chop them up into beautiful golden brown cookie powder. About 1 1/2 cups worth. Then add 3 tablespoons of brown sugar. Don’t you love how packed brown sugar looks? To make the crust, mix the cookie crumbs and brown sugar together. Mix up the cheescake ingredients and pour it on the crust. Oh yeah! Then bake it at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes. And let it cool. And try not to eat it. Then whip up some chocolate ganache to pour on top. Oh yeah. Spread the chocolate evenly on top of the cheesecake and then refrigerate overnight.
