Cinnamon Sugar Sheet Cake

Cinnamon Sugar Sheet Cake…say that five times fast! It’s my daughter Rachel’s birthday and she is far away from me in another state. The only way I know to feel better about that situation (without getting on a plane), is to bake a cake.

Cinnamon Sugar Sheet Cake

Cake:
1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
2¼ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 375°, spray 12’x17″ sheet pan. In large microwave proof bowl, heat butter and water for about 2½-3 minutes on 50% power in the microwave; whisk until butter is melted. Add sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; whisk until smooth. Add eggs, vanilla, and sour cream. Whisk until well combined and smooth batter. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, test center with pick. Make frosting right before cake is baked.

Frosting:
1/2 cup butter
6 Tbl milk
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
cinnamon sugar
crystal sugar

In saucepan, heat butter and milk to melt butter and just after mixture starts to boil remove from heat. Whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla. Spread evenly over warm cake. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar and crystal sugar evenly over frosting. Garnish with chopped pecans, walnuts, sprinkles, white chocolate curls, if desired.

Pumpkin Milk Chocolate Blondies

One of my favorite treats in the whole wide world! I am a dark chocolate fan, I will choose dark chocolate everyday over milk chocolate. But, there is something about the creamy, smooth subtlety of milk chocolate with pumpkin that works so well. Don’t get me wrong, I would totally jump in and eat my share if this recipe were made with semi-sweet or dark chocolate. I am always willing and ready to do my part! Happy October!

Pumpkin Milk Chocolate Blondies

Pumpkin Milk Chocolate Blondies 2

1/2 cup butter, room temp
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce, room temp
1 Tbl oil
1¼ cups sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1 (11.5oz) bag milk chocolate chips, divided

Preheat oven to 350°. Line 9″x13″ baking pan with foil, leaving overhang on each end. Spray with non-stick spray.

In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter, applesauce, oil, and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and pumpkin; mix well. Add Flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and cloves; mix just until combined. Stir in milk chocolate chips, reserving 1/2 cup. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Sprinkle reserved milk chocolate chips evenly over top of batter, gently press down a bit. Bake 30 minutes. Cool completely. Lift blondies out of pan using foil to grab onto as handles. Place on cutting board, peel foil away from blondies and cut into 24 squares. Using applesauce instead of all butter reduces the calories per blondie from 225 to 190, so have another!

Spiced Pecan Cookies

I am all for loading a cookie with pecans, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice. Perfect cookie on a fall day, plus your kitchen will smell wonderful. Bake some and have a nibble!

Spiced Pecan Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl vanilla
2 Tbl cream or half-and-half
2 cups flour
1 Tbl pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp corn starch
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
2 cups pecan halves

Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar with electric mixer. Add egg, vanilla, and cream; mix well. Add flour, pumpkin pie spice, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until combined. Mix in pecans, the mixer will break them up a bit but leave large chunks (you can chop them if you want smaller pieces).

Original recipe at averiecooks.com says to scoop into balls and refrigerate at this point, click on link if you want to go that route. I am a rebel, not really, just wanted a cookie faster, and baked them immediately. Scoop onto silpat lined or sprayed baking sheet. I baked them at 375° for 8-9 minutes, don’t let them brown if you want a soft cookie. I smashed mine with the spatula as they came from the oven. Let cool.
