Glazed Apple-Oat Cookies | recipe on www.crumbsandchaos.net

According to the calendar, fall is still a week away…but according to the cool, gentle breeze outside, fall has arrived.  I was absolutely ecstatic to put on jeans, socks and slippers the other day while cooking up some good ol’ comfort food.    And after my monthly stack of magazines arrived last week (I’m always excited for fresh reading material!), I was flipping through Food Network Magazine and spied their list of an entire month of apple recipes.  Then my Friday afternoon turned into a loaf of applesauce granola bread and a batch of these little beauties.

If you’re a fan of soft, cake-like cookies, these are for you.  Full of spice and grated apple, these cookies are just begging to be made on a cool, fall afternoon.  Don’t skip the glaze, it’s the icing on the, errr, cookie ;)

  • 1 teaspoon GROUND CINNAMON
  • ¾ teaspoon BAKING POWDER
  • ½ teaspoon BAKING SODA
  • ½ teaspoon SALT
  • ¼ teaspoon GROUND ALLSPICE
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) BUTTER, melted and cooled slightly
  • ½ cup BROWN SUGAR
  • ½ cup WHITE SUGAR

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line baking sheets with Silpat mats or parchment paper.
  2. Combine flour, oats, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt and allspice in a bowl.
  3. Stir together butter, sugars and eggs in a large bowl. Add grated apple and vanilla, stir well. Add flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  4. Use a cookie scoop (mine was 1½ Tablespoons) to scoop dough onto baking sheets. The cookies can be fairly close together because they don't spread out too much.

  6. Stir together powdered sugar, milk and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Spoon onto cooled cookies.

Pumpkin Butterscotch Squares

Pumpkin Butterscotch Squares | recipe on www.crumbsandchaos.net

Creamy and delicious, Pumpkin Butterscotch Squares are a great way to welcome fall!

Fall = cooler weather, sweaters and boots, colorful leaves for crunching through, apples, cider and, of course, P-U-M-P-K-I-N.  Since, the weather isn’t all that cool yet, let’s start things off with a creamy, cool dessert.  I found this one when flipping through an old church cookbook that had been given to me and I knew it was a must try.  A graham cracker crust, topped with a cream cheese layer, covered in a pumpkin butterscotch pudding and crowned with creamy whipped topping…oh, and the little dusting of pumpkin pie spice makes all right in the world.  If that doesn’t entice you, maybe you aren’t a pumpkin lover?!  I guess we can still be friends, that leaves more for the rest of us ;)…

Mini Caramel Chip Icebox Pies | recipe on www.crumbsandchaos.net

Let’s talk for a minute about no bake desserts.  Could there be anything better?  Getting your sweet tooth fix without even turning on the oven?  I think not.  Mini Caramel Chip Icebox Pies take a little bit of planning ahead, but there’s nothing difficult about them.  They make a cool, creamy treat that’s super easy to love.  There’s a layer of ganache in between the filling and the crust – making ganache is a simple process that takes two ingredients and elevates this little dessert to serve-me-after-dinner-with-friends status.

Cinnamon Streusel Peach Pie Bars | recipe on www.crumbsandchaos.net

This incredible summer dessert was created using Walmart Produce as part of a sponsored post for Social Stars.  

Cinnamon Streusel Peach Pie Bars are sure to be a hit at your next gathering!

There are so many things to love about each and every season…summer’s fresh fruit is one of those things, especially here in the Midwest where we really endure winter.  This year I’ve been practically hoarding enjoying all of the fresh produce I can get my hands on, I’m not sure if that’s because last winter was ridiculously harsh or the fact that it’s already August (!) and I’m not ready for summer and all of the fruits and veggies to end. #probablyboth

Cinnamon Streusel Peach Pie Bars | recipe on www.crumbsandchaos.net

I wanted a rather portable dessert to take to a picnic over the weekend and pie bars were the way to go.  I grabbed fresh peaches from the Walmart Produce section, which shine when combined with just a few simple ingredients.  Stone fruits, like peaches, plums, cherries, apricots and more, are ready and waiting for you at your local Walmart.  Did I mention their 100% money back guarantee on all their produce?  It’s true, they’re all about happy customers….

Favorite Brownies From Scratch

Favorite Brownies From Scratch | recipe on www.crumbsandchaos.net

My Favorite Brownies from Scratch – the batter is ready in the time it takes to preheat the oven!

One evening, my husband was searching through the pantry.  He doesn’t cook so it was weird.

Me: What are you looking for?

Him: A box of brownie mix or something.

Me: Seriously?!  It’s like you don’t even know me!!

It’s not that I have anything against boxed brownie mix, I usually don’t buy it because I prefer this recipe.  I mean what’s better than a warm, fudgy brownie?

This recipe for Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches is brought to you by International Delight.

Lately I honestly find myself wanting to be far, far away from the kitchen.  I guess it’s just the summer itch to be outside soaking up the sun and making memories with my kids.  But summer also brings the desire for all things cold and frozen.  So this is my solution to heading out of the kitchen, but still having a cool treat ready to enjoy at any time.  Feel free to personalize them by using your favorite store bought cookies.

Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet

Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet | Crumbs and Chaos

Tart and tangy, Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet is cool, creamy and refreshing.  If you love lemons, this simple 4 ingredient dessert is for you!

I want to know how many of you can’t pass a thrift store without taking a peek inside?  We have that problem {we = me + my husband}.  Seriously, we can’t help it.  Awhile back a Goodwill Boutique opened up near us, it’s a smaller version of a Goodwill store with a slightly different variety of goods.  On our first trip there we spied this adorable vintage table…price tag $99.  We didn’t really need it, so I talked him out of it :)  Fast forward two weeks later, my sister and I stop by while she’s in town.  Sitting right inside the back door, the very same table we needed marked down to $20.  Sold!  I called my husband at work and we loaded it up on his lunch break.  Right now it’s in our garage, so I used it for taking the pictures of this creamy Lemon Sherbet.  I’m super in love with the black and white star burst design on the table top – it’s so vintage!!

Lemon Buttermilk Sherbet | Crumbs and Chaos

On a hot day, you’ll be hoping you have some of this sherbet hanging out in your freezer.  It’s both tart from the lemons and tangy from the buttermilk and makes a super backdrop for fresh sweet berries.  It’s really a cinch to make, although you need some time to chill the lemon syrup and then, of course, actually freeze it.  But it won’t be long before you’re in a lemon lover’s heaven ;)
