November Baking, Posting in December

My friend and I decided to have a baking day in celebration of all things holiday related. The themes of the season which included cranberries, pumpkin, and, of course, chocolate, could not be denied.

Cara's contribution:
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter & Honey Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies (from the back of the oatmeal container!)

My contribution:
Cranberry Orange Bread with Walnuts (made muffins)

The Best Snickerdoodles Ever

Apple Pumpkin Bundt Cake

We also had the fun occurrence of a freak hail storm!

But it is all part of living in the Northwest.

  1. the peanut butter & honey cookies actually came from the Betty Crocker Cooky Book. Here's the recipe i used:

    1/3 cup butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup honey
    2/3 cup peanut butter (i used crunchy)
    1 egg
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup chopped peanuts (only if using smooth peanut butter)

    preheat oven to 400F. mix butter, sugar, honey, peanut butter, and egg thoroughly. blend dry ingredients; stir into wet mixture. it helps to wet your hands and form these into balls. place about 1 inch apart onto a greased baking sheet, and use a wet fork to leave prints. bake for 8-10 minutes, one cookie sheet at a time for overall goodness!
