Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies


Have you ever had something so many times that you don't realize that you haven't shared it?  That's what these Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies are for me.  This is a recipe that my mom makes every year, the one reason I always make sure to have cinnamon chips in the pantry.  The applesauce in these cookies makes them so incredibly moist that it's almost unreal; plus, I love anything with cinnamon!



So simple and easy, but so deliciously good.  Give them a try - you'll thank me later!

Cinnamon Applesauce Cookies
Ingredients:
For the Cookies
1 cup softened butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup applesauce
10 oz. package cinnamon chips
For the Glaze1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
milk or water to desired consistency

Directions:
Beat butter and sugars until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla, beating until thoroughly mixed.  Add flour and baking soda in intervals on low speed.  Stir in applesauce and then cinnamon chips.

Drop by teaspoon 1" apart on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.

To make the glaze, add milk or water to desired consistency to powdered sugar.  To drizzle glaze, make a thin mixture, and to frost cookies, use a thicker glaze.

When cookies have cooled, drizzle or frost with glaze.  Allow to harden before storing.

These cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to 2-weeks, but also store very well in the refrigerator and stay softer that way.  They also freeze very well.

Makes approximately 5 dozen cookies.

The Best Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

A fabulous vanilla cupcake recipe is something everyone needs. EVERY.ONE. Not just bakers. Not just parents that host a lot of kid parties. Everyone. I've tried several, and many have been phenomenal. Then I tried Amy Sedaris's after finding the recipe online, and it was above and beyond the best vanilla cupcake I've ever made. It was an easy batter to make, baked up beautifully, and most importantly - tasted amazing. Regardless if you have never made vanilla cupcakes and need a recipe to start with, or even if you think you have the best - give this one a shot. You will not be disappointed! Vanilla Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 cups flour 1 1/4 cups milk Directions: - Preheat oven to 375 degrees. - Mix butter at medium speed until smooth. Mix in sugar until well blended. - Add eggs, mixing until fully

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz. White Chocolate, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla Directions: Beat softened cream cheese and vanilla with mixer until well blended and light (a few minutes). Beat in pudding mix until fully incorporated. Stir in melted white chocolate. Fold in thawed Cool Whip Allow to set in fridge for a few hours, but don't let it get

Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker Beef Chili

I don't experiment much with chili because it rarely goes well for me and my family. I've slowly adapted my chili recipe over the years, but I've still always used canned chili beans, with a flavored sauce. I've been wanting to try regular beans (whether canned or dried, I wasn't discerning, just didn't want the sauce), so off to the Googles I went rather than trying to recreate the spice blend from my normal canned beans. Because I was originally planning to make chili in the Instant Pot, that's where I focused my search. Thankfully the recipe I decided to try was adapted from a Slow Cooker recipe, because life got in my way and I wasn't able to make the chili the night before as planned, and I wouldn't have had time to use the pressure cooker with my schedule that day. What drew me to this recipe was the simplicity of the ingredients. And lack of jalapeno. Because somehow nearly every time I plan chili I forget to buy a jalapeno, even if it
