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.

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…

Exclusive Pumping - why I did it twice, and some tips & tricks

This is a story I've been wanting to share for several years, in fact one of the reasons I decided to make the switch to more of a life blog versus a food blog. So bear with me here!

I have two children. I tried breastfeeding both of them, and was unsuccessful with both, for different reasons. One wouldn't latch. One my supply was too fast and plentiful. I tried a few things because I really really wanted to breastfeed, but it was stressing me out, so I looked in to other options, which is where I learned about exclusive pumping. 

 What is exclusive pumping (or EP)? It's when a mother expresses her milk to feed her child, rather than feeding "straight from the source". Prior to having Tyler, I knew very little about pumping, but I knew that since I planned to breastfeed and planned to work after maternity leave, I would need a pump. But that was about it. I remember the weekend before he was born sitting on my bed playing with the pump and thinking the manual was…
