I love these cookies!  They are soft and sweet.  When the autumn weather begins to have that chill in the air, these cookies are a must on my baking list!  With real maple syrup and a dash of maple extract, they have a wonderful autumn taste.  The spices enhance the flavor and add to how yummy they are.  If you are looking for a new cookie recipe for your fall baking, I highly recommend these spiced maple cookies.  My family and friends absolutely love them!  I'm sure yours will too.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

With most cookie recipes, I like to add the flour to the creamed butter mixture in two to three batches at a time to ensure all the ingredients are mixed well.

As a way for the cookies to have a nice look to them, refrigerate the cookie dough for an hour before baking.  This is an optional step.  The cookies can be baked right away, but I prefer the way they look when I've refrigerated the cookie dough.

Always keep a close watch on your cookies while baking!...

This is a delicious and lovely fall cake that features pears.  Upside-down cakes are wonderful, because they are very easy to make and at the same time look like they were made by a master chef.  One of the ingredients that sets this cake apart is the addition of cardamom.  If you have never used cardamom in a recipe before, I encourage you to give this recipe a chance as the cardamom in it is subtle but really enhances the flavor of the cake.  If you love pears and the taste of fall spices, give this yummy pear upside-down cake a try!

These wonderful cookies are a perfect holiday treat!  They are sweet with a subtle ginger flavor.  The spices add to the flavor and compliment the ginger in the cookies.  The dark brown sugar and molasses in these little gems add depth and richness to the taste.  I found this recipe in People magazine from the kitchen of Dominique Ansel, a pastry chef in New York City.  If you are looking for a light and sweet flavored ginger cookie this autumn, I highly recommend this recipe!

Bon Appetit

Tips:

If you prefer a stronger ginger flavor, try adding 3 teaspoons of finely grated fresh ginger.

These cookies are a soft cookie...not crisp.

They freeze great!  I put the baked, completely cooked cookies in gallon size freezer bags.  They should be good up to a month.

Preparation time is 20 minutes.  Total time is 40 minutes.

Pumpkin lattes are one of the things I love about autumn.  American coffee lovers look forward to this seasonal treat each year.  I found this recipe in the September 26, 2016 issue of People magazine.  The recipe is by Jeni Brittan Bauer.  You can save some serious money by making these lattes at home as well as impress friends and family with your barista coffee house talent.  With the falling leaves and crisp autumn nip in the air, you now have a good excuse to indulge your sweet tooth with caramel pumpkin spice lattes.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

If you live in a part of the world that does not have pumpkin flavored ice cream, you don't need to worry!  You can use a rich vanilla ice cream (or whatever you ice cream you think might work) and make your own pumpkin-pie spice by mixing the following spices together: 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves, and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger.

Latte preparation time is 5 minutes.  Whip cream p...

Despite the title, these muffins are great any time of the day!  They are sweet with a hint of spice and go perfect with a cup of coffee.  There is a rustic quality to these muffins.  I tried many recipes before I created this one, and I worked to incorporate the best of each recipe.  My family helped with the development of my own 'French Morning Muffins' and commented on each recipe I tried.  I have worked to combine all the feedback I got into this recipe, and they turned out amazing!  For an extra indulgence, split the muffin in half and spread some butter on it.  Try out these wonderful French morning muffins and let me know what you think!

Bon Appetit!
