top 5 baked treats for your loved one
by MK Burnell
There's nothing like baking up a batch of cookies or cupcakes to keep you warm on a chilly autumn afternoon. Nothing, except maybe sharing them with your sweetheart later on! Here are five of our favorite cool-weather baked goods: simple to make, and simply delicious.
CHAI PUMPKIN SPICE THUMBPRINTS by PassTheSushi
Hershey's makes a seasonal Pumpkin Spice Kiss, and one creative baker found the perfect cookie to complement them. Mix up a batch of these for your Thanksgiving table to impress the in-laws!
The warm, inviting flavor of French Toast and maple syrup, condensed into a delicate cupcake garnished with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Yes, please.
MINI APPLE PIES WITH CHEDDAR by Eating Well
These bite-size pies put a charming twist on the much-beloved apple dessert. A small wedge of cheddar cheese melted on top (we recommend local cheese if it's available) adds an irresistible tang. C'est magnifique!
ZUCCHINI BREAD by SimplyRecipes.com
An autumn classic. Add walnuts and cranberries for some added texture and flavor. Whip up a loaf and spend the next few days indulging in some warm zucchini bread for breakfast - you'll never want to go back to toast.
PUMPKIN SPICE CAKE WITH HONEY FROSTING by Martha Stewart
This time, the pumpkin flavor is the star of the show. The delicately sweet honey frosting is a perfect complement to the rich pumpkin spice. Easy to make but hard to resist.
Whipping up a batch of goodies is a delicious way to show someone you care - and it fills your home with that tantalizing warm-cookie smell! Anybody can bake, so go ahead and indulge a little this autumn.
