Apple Crisp

apple crisp

Mmm…baked apples and cinnamon. Is there a better flavor combination for a chilly Fall day?  We made our annual trip our favorite apple orchard a few weeks ago and desperately tried dream up ways to use up all of our apples. We ended up having to toss the last few, but recipes like this delicious apple crisp are a tasty way to use up a lot of apples. Add a scoop of vanilla or butter pecan ice cream and this is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Are you loving Fall as much as I am? We are trying to make the most of the season this year. This month’s Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge ingredients were pumpkin and cream cheese. Last year, we made these pumpkin cream cheese wontons for this challenge (far more creative than cheesecake), but this cheesecake is out of this world good.

The filling is wonderfully creamy and the perfect combination of Fall flavors. I opted for my favorite gingersnap crust (the same recipe I used for the blueberry cheesecake we made this summer). Heaven. Run! Don’t walk to the kitchen and whip this cheesecake up for yourself so you know what I’m talking about.

…and if you’re getting a little tired of pumpkin recipes around here, sit tight. We’re planning our annual trip to our favorite apple orchard this weekend. Get ready for apples, sugar, and cinnamon…Oh my!

Blueberry Cheesecake

Prepared to be in blueberry heaven with this cheesecake. The blueberry topping is so fresh and delicious, but I have to say that the consensus is that the gingersnap crust really makes this dish. The combo of the blueberry topping and gingersnap crust just take this ordinary cheesecake recipe out of this world. Make this while blueberries are still in season and you won’t be disappointed!

How cute are these for Spring? So cute. I am notoriously horribly at making anything cutesy or crafty, but I promise you these are almost idiot-proof. They are so quick, easy, and would be a great recipe to make with kids. Enjoy!
