Chocolate Chip Duo

I just wanted to share a picture of the cookies I made last night. I did both white and milk chocolate chips and they were jam packed with flavor!

Chewy Walnut Squares

This afternoon I whipped up these delightful little treats for the ladies at church that I visit teach. I cut this recipe out of a fundraiser book and while I was in the middle of it, I realized some typos in it. I pieced it together the best I could. So I'm not entirely sure if I got the recipe right, or even what they should have been like in the end result. They aren't the prettiest thing, but I tasted them and thought they were delish, and since they fit in perfectly with my lesson, I decided to go for it! I'm looking forward to eating a few tonight with a bit of vanilla ice cream!

Chewy Walnut Squares
1 egg
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C flour
1 C brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 C chopped walnuts

Stir together egg, baking soda, and vanilla. Quickly stir in the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Add in walnuts. Spread into a greased 8x8 pan. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.

Apple Pie

I just thought I would share a picture of my apple pie. I was given a box of apples from someone Travis works with, and ice cream was on sale, so we had the perfect storm for apple pie! It was delicious! I debated between an apple pie and an apple crisp, so I went with the pie and did a crumb topping instead of the double crust. Yummy!

Dessert Pizza

Last night I made a dessert pizza. I always enjoy them when we've been to pizza buffets and thought I'd give one a try. My pictures make it seem like not much to look at, but it was a real tasty treat!
I just baked my dough as normal (although I rolled it a little thinner than usual, and I wish I had kept it thicker), then rubbed a little butter on it, sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar, and topped it with a glaze made with a little powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Yum!

Caramel Apple Muffins

Last night I made these caramel apple muffins. I got the idea from a magazine page and we all loved them.
First, you make your favorite apple muffins. I actually just made my favorite oatmeal muffins and used applesauce instead of oil. Then you beat cream cheese with a little vanilla for an icing. Stick a Popsicle stick in the middle. The original recipe has you then dip them into nuts next, but since my recipe has nuts in it, I skipped that step. Then you chop some caramel pieces and sprinkle them on top. We really enjoyed these!

Halloween Bark

The other night I made some white chocolate bark to send to Travis' class for their Halloween party. I thought it turned out cute and yummy!
