Dutch Apple Cheesecake + Pumpkin Tiramisu {Thanksgiving 2011}

My thanksgiving was so bright I had to wear shades. And it was delicious. See that jell-o? It’s a rainbow under that green. My nephews love it. My niece can’t get enough of it. There was also┬áThe Pioneer Woman’s sweet potatoes, in that blue dish back there. They taste like what sweet potatoes should taste like as dessert… but as a side dish. On each plate there are two kernels of indian corn. Every year…

Baked Apple Pancake

There’s this restaurant that has an apple pancake similar to this. I order it sometimes. And let me tell you, I’m a champ. I’ve finished the whole thing. With that said, I’m trying to be a lady. So I’m saying this serves four. Four ladies such as myself that don’t consider a sliver of this enough, but can’t justify eating this whole pancake on a Sunday while watching the Law and Order SVU scare-a-thon. I…

Applesauce Cake

Consider these the hip cousin of the petit four. Or just consider it tasty, and slice it into big pieces instead. Laura over at┬áRather Be Baking knows what’s up. I believed her when she said to trust her on this cake. She’s totally right; it’s the best. This is just the perfect weeknight cake. It comes together quickly, in one bowl and bakes up in only 30 minutes. Chances are you’ll want to keep eating…

Crumb Apple Pie

Mix up and refrigerate the pie crust. Run to the store and get more butter. Maybe get some heavy whip for vanilla whipped cream. Maybe the sales associates will assume you’re a very unhealthy person. Maybe they think you’re weird for getting giant bacon dog treats along with the fatty goodness. For sure you get home and finish the making home made pie and the joke’s on them. Don’t forget to “cheers!” your first bite.…

Apple Crumble Bars

I am really loving fall. My three top reasons are the following: 1. Anything pumpkin 2. Boots of all varieties 3. Anything that contains both apples and a crumble topping They are REALLY good. I recommend making them promptly. And, don’t worry, they’ll be done before Mad Men. These are so good that even the most prim and proper lady is likely to curse aloud exclaiming the goodness of these for all to hear! Apple…

Pocket Apple Pies

I’m sick of sandwiches. I had them for lunch and dinner pretty much all week. I’m never sick of apple pie. I am pretty happy that tonight Jacob made a huge dinner instead of my lazy sandwiches. I decided to make these pocket pies for dessert. They turned out delicious and perfect one person portions. I baked two out of the eight pies this recipe made and froze the rest so that at any time…

Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping & Brown Sugar Glaze

I remember this episode of Garfield from when I was a little girl where there was free ice cream in the park, and he kept going back for more by wearing a fake mustache, a hat, sunglasses, or other various disguises. Speaking of disguises. This is a dessert disguised as breakfast. Make it for house guests this lovely Labor Day, and you’ll be glad you did. People might even put on fake mustaches when they…

Mini Dutch Apple Galettes

Every fall, the trees along the sidewalk place the prettiest of their leaves in my path for me to find! Sometimes I put them in my pocket and bring them home. It’d be rude not to! They were gifts after all…but it’s not fall yet is it? It’s August! …but today feels like fall, and to be honest, I’m having a hard time embracing it. But this recipe (and maybe a new pair of boots)…
