Muffin Tin Caramel Apple Pies are special because of their size – like a mini apple crumble pie, really. This recipe uses two major shortcuts, refrigerated pie crust and a jar of store-bought caramel sauce. From there, it’s just sauteed apples and an incredibly delicious crumble topping – these are heavenly served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
These Apple Butter Hand Pies are a grown-up version of the toaster pastries you loved as a kid, but way better. They’re perfect to serve as a casual dessert for parties, and are extra delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

When I was a kid, the holy grail of “breakfast” was Strawberry Pop Tarts.
With frosting and sprinkles.
And make that two, please.
Always, always heated in the toaster.
This recipe calls for apple butter instead of strawberry jam, and while I’d still love to eat it for breakfast, it’s definitely a dessert.
This amazing Apple Upside Down Cake was inspired from Cooks Illustrated and proves that an exceptional tasting apple cake can be gorgeous and a cinch to put together too. The apples are quickly sauteed before being covered with an easy hand-whisked batter that’s made extra tender with sour cream.

I’m delighted and relieved we’re talking about cake and not another summer tomato salad.
Nothing against tomatoes, but I’m sort of over them right now.
Thoughts of pumpkins, warm spices and fall flavors are dancing in my head.
Also, apple cake has been on my mind for like, two weeks and I’m ready to get started on the fall baking season.
I love the fall months, and I really love a good homemade apple cake.
If you’ve never had a Melon with Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce, well, friends, you may be missing out. There’s nothing better for dessert when it’s hot outside, and everybody just loves it.
Summertime is the best time, isn’t it?
There are melons in all the farmers markets and grocery stores, just waiting to be eaten.
This is an easy and absolutely delicious recipe – Melon with Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce!
This Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar is a fun and easy dessert, that’s no-bake and and easy to put together too. Use the prettiest berries you can find, which isn’t difficult this wonderful time of year.
My first attempt at Strawberry Cheesecake in a Jar was awful.
For one thing, there was entirely too much crust….
This recipe for California Fig Banana Bread is courtesy of the experts over at Valley Fig Growers (who generously supplied the figs too.) It’s super easy to mix together and has amazing flavor and texture. I’ve added a fresh lemon-spiked cream cheese frosting to swirl on top because, why not?
For anyone out there who can’t find the new Onion Salt at Trader Joe’s I’m very, very sorry.
They are all right here in my cupboard….
If you’ve never tasted White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, its time to change that. This is a fantastic riff on the old milk chocolate standby. You can make these smaller by using a mini muffin pan, but why would you want to?
I just ate two giant cookies from yesterday’s all-day baking session.
I fear this is a problem since it’s just 7:00 am and there are at least twelve hours until bedtime….
The secret to this amazing Pumpkin Spice Milkshake is it’s simplicity. There aren’t many ingredients here, but they are magic when blended together.
I don’t know about you, but I crave pumpkin spice this time of year, in it’s many, many forms.
The stuff is out in full swing as you’ve probably noticed, everything from pumpkin spice peanut butter to pumpkin tea bags and cookies, even jars of spicy pumpkin pasta sauce.
October makes me nostalgic, which got me thinking about why random memories stick with us our whole lives.
Like when I was 14 – that awkward stage when you’re not old enough to do anything….
These Easy Little Blueberry Lemon Pies are pretty, delicious, and fun to make. Pack these in your picnic basket to make the most of your summer days.
It’s only the first week of August, and I already feel a twinge of fall.
The shadows outside are changing, and there’s coolness in the air.
It was downright chilly on my walk by the river this morning….
This Summer Fruit Crisp is everything you want in a dessert. It’s easy to put together with whatever combination of fruit you have on hand, and the crisp topping can be made in advance and stored in the freezer.
Here’s a new thing I just learned.
If you leave a bunch of random papers in a pile long enough, they don’t matter anymore.
Isn’t that great?…
