The ranger cookie history goes back to the 1930’s Texas rangers. The cookies are very similar to the cowboy cookie, which I grew up on all my life. These cookies were a typical dessert for the Texas ranger’s dinner since they were handheld and packed with energy packed ingredients that were perfect for the Texas rangers to keep them going.
Today they make the perfect snack for keeping you going on a hike in the wonderful fall weather or a snack for your mid afternoon energy boost. The cookies come out moist and packed with sweet and delicious flavors. The nuts or chocolate chips can be replaced with raisins for a healthier option.
The pumpkin pie is a fall classic custard pie that is found almost everywhere. In this walnut crumble pumpkin pie, the classic pie gets a new twist with a crunchy walnut streusel topping and walnut-graham cracker crust. The addition with the walnut, it gives the pie another level of flavor to the pumpkin that makes it amazing. The pumpkin filling is silky smooth and delicious while the walnut crumble topping gives it a great sweet crunch.
The classic pound cake is one of those things ever baker wants to master. the structure of the cake makes it a great foundation to a ton of different varieties once you get a hang of it. Trust me, its not hard to master at all. In this brown sugar and chocolate chip pound cake, the cake is speckled with chocolate chips and topped with a sweet and bitter espresso glaze that goes amazing together. The cake comes out moist, dense, tall and of course delicious.
For birthdays , I enjoy making people some of their favorite desserts or meals. I feel like its a more personal gift that they really enjoy. With my moms birthday this week I decide to make one of her favorite deserts a pecan pie. This time I decided to make this bourbon pecan tart to make it something different. The sweetness of the filling and the smokiness of the bourbon really bring out the flavor of the pecans. I mean who doesn't like a little bit of booze in there dessert!! The tart can be made booze free with the substitution of apple juice for the bourbon.
I know the sound of potato chips in cookies does sound a bit odd, but they are a classic old fashion cookie that pack a great balance of flavor with every bite. The preparation is very easy and only a few ingredients that are even easier to find. Potato chip cookies have a great sweet and salty flavor that will please everybody. The cookies are full of butter flavor and crunch from the walnut and potato chip pieces.
If there is one baked dessert that defined summer, the peach cobbler would be a strong contender for that spot. The fresh peaches baked into a soft tender cake served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream is picture perfect on a hot summer night. In this classic peach cobbler, the peaches are tossed in a cinnamon sugar spike with bourbon that really brings out the flavor of the fresh peaches. then the batter wraps around the peaches hiding them in every bite.
Looking for a great easy dessert on these warm summer nights. These chocolate dipped frozen banana bites are the perfect kid-friendly treat. when the bananas are frozen they become very sweet making it a great alternative for the person with a major sweet tooth. The toppings are endless with your favorite candy bars, nuts, coconut, cookies and cereals making each person in your family have their own special treat.
When it comes to cookies, there is two sides you can be on, the soft and chewy or then thin and crispy side. Me personally, I love the thicker and soft cookies that are chewy. These old-fashioned oatmeal chocolate chip cookies come out chewy and stay chewy for days after you make them. The cookies are packed with chocolate chips and rolled oats (doesn't that make these healthy). The cookies are extremely simple to prepare and make in minutes. I am not a huge sweets person, but I love these cookies!!
During the summer, the last thing you want to do is be baking with a hot oven heating up your house to have a great dessert. These No-Bake White Chocolate Lime Cheesecake Bars are the perfect solution to eliminating that problem with no need for that hot oven. The cheesecake bars come out with a great mixture of sweetness from the white chocolate and tart from the lime juice and zest. These are perfect for the next backyard barbecue or just to enjoy on a hot summer day. The preparation takes about 15-20 minutes then let the bars set up in the refrigerator for couple hours.
Here in Minnesota, it seems like every barbecue or party, you will always see some type of bars on the table. They are very easy to make and are typically delicious. These chocolate mud hen bars don't have the best sounding name but they come tasting really good. They are pretty much a s'more type bar that has a cookie crust with walnuts, chocolate and marshmallows topped with a brown sugar meringue. The bars some out chewy and sweet.
