Ok…Well maybe I have a little more than a sweet tooth. As the weather gets colder (call me crazy, but I’m really enjoying it) I get more urges to bake and make hot dinners.
I found a few recipes that were really great and turned out pretty well. They’re also super easy.
I basically had a muffin day and made the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Muffins (I messed up a little…I put in butter. But they still tasted amazing) and muffins donuts. YUM
Let’s start out with the Cinnamon Donut Muffins with homemade glaze.
Here are some that have their first coat of glaze and some that don’t.
It makes a bit of a mess, but with the big cutting board I didn’t have too many issues.
They were pretty popular. The peanut butter ones were more popular though. Ha
Now for the Double Chocolate Chip Muffins.
Seriously…These were so good. I’ve been sending treats to work with Peter for his co-workers. These ones didn’t make it.
Hmmm…I wonder why?
I really love it when the ingredients separate. So cool.
Anyway-Back on track.
I decided to skip the sprinkling of chocolate on the top. Maybe next time.
Next we have the Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread.
This was A-Ma-Zing. I kid you not. Next time I think I’ll try Banana Bread or Chocolate Banana Bread. But this was a great treat for the start of fall.
It looked a bit like hummus (someone guessed that when I posted this on Facebook).
I went ahead and just dumped the whole bag (it was the smaller size) of semi-sweet chocolate chips in.
As some of you probably know, because the pumpkin puree is so wet it takes longer for this to cook. Just follow the recipe and check frequently while baking. Mine actually took over an hour to cook where it wasn’t super wet. I just waited until only chocolate came out with the fork.
Also-As I didn’t have it, I didn’t put in the cloves. It was perfectly fine. 🙂
I brought this one home when I visited family and it only lasted about five minutes from the time I cut it up and put it on the table. Peter really liked eating it with a glass of milk.
And last but not least is the Double Chocolate Chip and Butterscotch Cookies.
So these are actually supposed to be triple chocolate chip, but I didn’t have the white so I just put in two. They’re still pretty awesome.
With the first batch I cooked them at 9 minutes and they were great. I didn’t smoosh them down like I did with the second batch (see photo above). Because of that the first set ended up being more of a chunk of cookie (no complaints though) since there is so much chocolate inside.
The second batch I cooked at 10 minutes and again they were perfect. I think the difference here from my other cookies is that I used the Silpat.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
Happy Fall! 🙂
