Today is BAKING DAY! We are not dividing our time driving across the states of illinois and missouri to appease our parents this year. This year, because my husband and I are having rough times, we decided to make our family a priority. We are going for lunch to my sister in laws house and then having friends over in the afternoon for deserts and drinks 🙂
So today I bake. I thought I’d share the recipes I am using today.
Yum! I don’t make the topping though – never have and there recipe is wonderful. The other thing – I’ve never used the maple sugar, only brown sugar.
Sweet potatoes already baked and out of the oven to cool –
Trying this recipe this year – my husband requested cherry pie – I will be using frozen cherries instead of canned.
Another husband request –
Best gooey butter cake ever – and I don’t think she’s from St. Louis!
Also in the making –
Apple “dumplings” – simply apples peeled and cored, covered with cinnamon, sugar , maybe some brown sugar, and then wrapped in pie crust.
Homemade whipped cream –
Baking in progress!
