Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Spiced Glaze

Our dear friends have hosted many Muggle Quidditch games on their property.  They are moving soon 🙁 , so last night was the last game.  I usually help run the “Three Broomsticks” where we have all kind of treats from butterbeer, licorice wands, chocolate turtles, every flavor beans, popcorn, etc.  I decided to make pumpkin cookies to add to the offerings.  I love the flavor of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but not the texture.  They are usually to cakey for me.  So I decided to add oatmeal to the mix and see what happened.  The results are wonderful!  I made 9 dozen cookies they are all gone now.  The teenagers LOVED them!  I had originally thought to make a chocolate glaze, but decided to go with a spiced glaze.  These are a new family favorite!

Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies

This is a just a review for these lovely cookies.  I made these without any alterations to the original recipe, so I am simply linking you to the source!  The Cooking Photographer came up with a delicious way to combine apple cider and caramel into a cookie.  She uses apple cider drink packets in the dough and wraps it around a caramel.  I could not find the actual square caramels so I used caramel bits.  These are best eaten warm, but are yummy anytime!

The basis of this recipe came from this cake at A Hint of Honey .  I really only make cakes for birthdays, and I wanted  to be able to put it in the kids lunches.  So I made some alterations to make it work for me.  The results are really very yummy.  Such a nice recipe for Fall when apples are in season.

Blueberry Streusel Rolls

Oh my, these are good! I wanted to make a treat using some of my blueberries so I tweaked my cinnamon roll recipe and came up with this lovely dessert. The streusel and blueberry filling is a nice flavor and texture combination. These are now my son’s favorite dessert.  He requested it for his Birthday instead of cake!
