Mini Pumpkin Pie Bites

Cute, easy, and disappeared fast!  These were a fun Halloween dessert, but could also be great for Thanksgiving if you don’t want to make a whole pie.  I would say don’t skip the butterscotch topping – really made it!  Also really portable – great for pot lucks!  I really liked these.

Pecan Pie

Although I am not much of a dessert person, I do try to have something on hand for our parties – and a pecan pie seemed just right for our Kentucky Derby party this year.  Easy and it makes a pretty pie, too.  This comes from Smitten Kitchen.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Any time these appear on a cookie tray, I have to restrain myself from eating all of them.  So I decided to go ahead and make them myself this year – definitely will be a regular addition in the cookie tins.  This is from Joy of Baking.

Mint Chocolate Cookies

This may be one of my favorite cookies I’ve ever done – but I love all things mint.  Definitely a popular one in this year’s cookie tins.

Cherry Chocolate Blossoms

Another new cookie in this year’s holiday cookie extravaganza, this one was cute and went over well.  A twist on peanut butter blossoms.

Holiday M&M Bars

One of the cookies for our yearly holiday cookie tins – as much as I am not a fan of chocolate, I really liked this one.  Simple and makes a lot, too.

Cinnamon Streusel-Topped Pumpkin Pie

This is a Cooking Light recipe I’ve always used for pumpkin pie, because it’s really excellent.  I make no changes to it except sometimes I will make the crust instead of buying crust.  Really excellent pie, easy to make, and it’s pretty. 🙂
