Pumpkin Spice Kiss Cookies

It’s a classic… the peanut butter cookie with the Hershey’s chocolate kiss on top.  Around here we call them, Peanut Butter Blossoms, and they are one of my all time favorites.  So when I saw that a good friend of mine posted this pumpkin version on her Facebook, I instantly began drooling.  A pumpkin cookie with a pumpkin spice kiss on top…. YUM!  My favorite part, besides the pumpkin, is the fact that they are rolled in cinnamon/sugar before baking.  It almost gives it a snickerdoodle type texture, which I also happen to love, but that’s for another day!  These pumpkin cookies are a great fall cookie to add to your regular rotation!

Snickerdoodle Apple Dessert Pizza

Snickerdoodle Apple Dessert Pizza | Crumbs and Chaos
We’re celebrating apple season with Snickerdoodle Apple Dessert Pizza, made using Walmart Produce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars.

One of my favorite smells in all the world, besides freshly roasted coffee beans, is the smell of a bag full of fresh apples.  Absolutely heavenly!  When apple season rolls around, you’d better believe I will get my hands on just as many as I can.  They are so versatile and delicious – from cookies and cinnamon rolls to applesauce and danish pastry bars, apples are a family fave!

Today I’ve paired them with one of their favorite partners – cinnamon!  Warm and inviting, Snickerdoodle Apple Dessert Pizza totally screams fall.  Snickerdoodle cookie crust spread with tangy cream cheese cinnamon topped with fresh chopped apple chunks and sprinkled with a little more cinnamon and sugar.  Super amazing!…

Top 5 Pumpkin Spice Treats to Enjoy This Fall

Top 5 Treats using International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer | brought to you by Crumbs and Chaos

You guys, fall is {actually} here!  Did you hear me?  I said, FALL IS HERE!!  I have been so stoked by the weather here in Southwest Michigan the past week or two, it has been absolutely gorgeous.  I love having to turn on the fireplace first thing in the morning for a bit to warm up the living room and then go out in the afternoon later wearing a short sleeve t-shirt.  I seriously can’t get enough.

Caramel Toffee Grape Bites, a fun party snack, were created using Walmart Produce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars.

Raise your hand if you’re excited to see all things fall appear at the stores?!  I’m especially excited as grapes, apples and pumpkins are starting to make their way into Walmart Stores across the country.  Oh, the eating and decorating possibilities.  When I was thinking about grapes, I remembered a family reunion a few years back where grapes dipped in caramel and peanuts made an appearance.  Well, I decided to dip these babies in toffee bits…which turned out to be a great choice!…

Glazed Apple-Oat Cookies are a super way to enjoy fall’s fresh apples!
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 ;)

  • ¼ teaspoon GROUND ALLSPICE
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) BUTTER, melted and cooled slightly
  • ½ cup BROWN SUGAR

  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.

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….
