Cranberries tend to be a great staple for the fall season especially around thanksgiving. The great tart flavor and the vibrate red color makes it very appealing to the eyes. This Cranberry Streusel Cake is a great addition to your thanksgiving table for a dessert option, it even makes a great breakfast cake option too. It has a great combination of sweet and tart from the cranberries and orange in the cake.
The first thing is you make the base cake, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and soda and salt. Cut in the butter to the flour mixture until a course meal like texture. Using a hand held mixer on low speed is an easy easy of doing this, you can also use a pastry blender or two knives.
In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks, sour cream and vanilla extract together until smooth.
Add the egg mixture to the dry ingredients just until all dry is moist. Scrap the batter into the prepared cake pan.
In a medium bowl, Stir the cranberries, orange juice and zest, granulated sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Top the cake batter with the cranberry mixture until evenly covered.
In another bowl, mix the flour, oats, brown sugar and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. add the butter and cut in with a pastry cutter or two knives until well incorporated and small chunks are formed. Add the streusel topping onto of the cranberries. Cook for about 1-1/2 hours until a knife comes out clean and cranberries are bubbling. Let cool completely and remove from pan.
In honor of the National Apple which is today, October 21th I made these Apple-Walnut Cream Cheese walnuts. For me, the best art of apple pie is the last bite with all the crust and the last of the apple pie filling. These tartlets have that bit in each of the 2-3 bites these tartlets take to eat and they are quite easy to make, taking about 30-40minutes for start to finish.
Using a 2-1/2" to 3" biscuit cutter or a cup with same size, cut out 12 rounds for each of the tartlets. If you are going to use homemade dough, try to get the thicken to about an 1/8" thick for the crust. Place each of the rounds in the bottom of a greased muffin pan pressing them tight against the bottom.
Make the apple filling by cooking the apples, sugar, walnuts and spices until almost tender and the liquid has mostly evaporated into a thick syrup. Make the cream cheese filling with a spoon or a mixer if needed. Add a teaspoon of each of the filling to the pie crust rounds, I just got each portions of the apples in each of the rounds and added the cream cheese on top.
Bake the tartlets for 15-20 minutes until the crust around the edges begins to brown and the cream cheese mixture is set into the apples. let them cool for about 5mins in the pan before removing gently.
The two best breakfasts in my opinion is cinnamon rolls and Apple pie, yes pie for breakfast is the best way to start the day!! The combination from the apple pie filling in the soft and flaky cinnamon roll is great, plus topped with cream cheese icing. The whole process talking about two hours you wont be spending your whole day on the rolls.
For the apple pie filling you can go easy and get the pre-made can kind, but if you are going through making your own rolls mind as well make your own which is easy. Both will come out with the same texture and similar flavor, but homemade always tastes better to me.
As the rolls bake there will be extra sugar syrup on the bottom that makes the both carmalized so if I see this when the rolls are done I like to flip them over while baking, i know the presentation is the prettiest but the caramelize drizzle that seeps back into the roll is worth it.
As the rolls are warm enjoy them as you deserve it after making the rolls with your favorite people and will last for a few days if the rolls are still around to be claimed.
Its again that time of year where the leaves are changing and the air is getting cooler. These cranberry pumpkin scones are perfect for that morning that has a great tart flavor of the cranberry with the sweetness of the cinnamon glaze that coats the moist pumpkin flavored scones. They are best when they are still warm from the oven but still have great flavor for days to follow.
You want to start with ice cold butter, I tend to cut the butter into small bits and place in the freezer while I get all of the dry ingredients measured and sifted into a bowl. you want to use a pastry blender or two knives to make the butter and flour mixture look like a course panko bread crumb texture.
Once you have the butter mixed in you want to add the cranberries, milk and pumpkin and mix into a soft dough. You want to roll the dough out on the counter top to a 1" thick circle.
Cut the dough into 12 equal size pieces, I like to use a 3 inch biscuit cutter to make nice circle shaped scones. then bake in a 350F oven for 20-25 minutes.
While the scones are baking, prepare the glaze by mixing the powder sugar, melted butter, milk and cinnamon. Mix until smooth. When the scones are done remove and let cool for 5 minutes then drizzle about 1 tablespoon of the glaze over each scone. And serve warm.
As fall comes in with the cool air and the leaves starting to change everyone starts to love the smell of fall desserts baking in the kitchen. The wonderful taste of pumpkin desserts from pies to this great tasting pumpkin-cherry upside-down cake makes fall so much better especially after doing all of the fall activities like going to apple orchard or finding that perfect pumpkin in the patch.
One of the best parts of the recipe is the cherry sauce that goes on the bottom that carmelizes as it bakes in the oven. It is super easy to make as all you do is add all of the ingredients for the cherry sauce in a sauce pan and let it come to a boil stirring frequently. Let simmer for 2-3 mins and pour into the bottom of the cake pan. let cool as you make the batter.
For the best part, the pumpkin cake. This recipe makes a cake that comes out super moist and has the classic taste that everyone loves.

A praline is a confection the has sugar, cream, and some form of nut, with pecans it would be classified as an an American praline. The praline topping is very simple to make and turns out fantastic for the topping for these cookies. For the praline topping add the cream and brown sugar in a small sauce pan, stir until all of the sugar is mixed in smooth. let the mixture boil for two minutes then pull off the heat and mix in the powdered sugar until a smooth caramel brown sauce is made. I let it cool for about 5minutes before adding it to the cookies. Top with the chopped pecans and the cookies are ready to be enjoyed. Once the praline topping as cooled completely you can stack the cookies up and store for days and they will stay nice and chewy.
