Tarte Fine

The weather has finally decided to give us a break from the 90 degree temperatures and it is starting to feel a lot more like fall. I love it. Sweater weather. Soups and stews, and best of all apples.

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie is a wonderful apple dessert, Tarte Fine. It's super easy to make and it is great served warm or at room temperature. I made a mini tart using about half a sheet of puff pastry and one large golden delicious apple. It made about 4 yummy servings. Thanks to Leslie of Lethally Delicious for picking this great recipe.

Coffee Break Muffins for TWD

Coffee in muffin batter, I just wasn't so sure about this recipe. I'm not a big fan of coffee flavors in baked goods so, I was a bit hesitant to try this recipe. Turns out that I had nothing to be worried about. These muffins are different but, really very tasty. I'm sure they would be great with some chocolate added to the batter, or maybe even a little glaze might be a nice addition. Thanks to Rhaini of Chocoholic Anonymous for picking this recipe.

Banana Upside-Downer

I have been part of the Tuesdays with Dorie group for almost two years. I love the thrill of making a new recipe every week. There is one thing that I rarely do though, I very seldom change anything about the recipe. I usually don't even make the variation of the recipe. I just like to get a feel for the recipe before I change things around. Yes, I'm boring like that. This week I put all of that aside and got a little crazy. Woo hoo. I couldn't find cranberries and I didn't want another peach dessert so I decided to use bananas.

I was very happy with the changes. I also added walnuts for crunch. Bananas, walnuts, and the cinnamon cake made a great flavor combination. Sometimes change can be good. Thanks to Sabrina of Superfluous for picking this recipe.

Peanut Butter Crisscrosses

This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie is Peanut Butter Crisscrosses. I love peanut butter cookies but, I feel like I should apologize to them. I am sorry that I always overlook you when it's time for cookie baking. You are quite tasty and super easy to make so why don't I make you more often? Dorie's recipe is sweet, light and slightly crispy. I promise that I won't forget how good you are again.

Thanks to Jasmine of Jasmines Cuisine for choosing this recipe. It is a great start for the fall baking and tailgating season. You really should try these cookies.
