These candy cane cookies would be a lot of fun to take to a Christmas party and the peppermint flavor gives them a fresh and light flavor! Start by making some basic sugar cookie dough with a bit of peppermint extract:

This recipe is kind of like the one for Chess Cake: it has been around for decades and lots of people make it but call it by a different name. I got this one from my grandma and the name is a little misleading because you can actually make it with any pudding flavor you want. She always made lemon because it was grandpa's favorite. It is also amazing with chocolate which I have seen some people call Chocolate Cream Cheese Delight. Someone else made it with coconut cream pudding and called it Texas Delight. We aren't from Texas though so I thought about calling it Southern Delight but in the end I decided to go with my grandma's "Lemon Lush".

A couple of months ago I tried a recipe for cake batter cookies that included pudding mix. They were okay but I thought the pudding made them taste overly processed so I continued searching. This recipe turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for! Full of cake batter flavor but in cookie form. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this cake batter craze? :)

Oatmeal raisin cookies are one of my husband's favorites but I have to admit that in our eight years together this is the first time that I have ever made him any. I never really liked them because I prefer super soft cookies and it seemed like they were always kind of crunchy. So I decided that it was time to look for a new recipe. I did a search for *chewy* oatmeal cookies and saw one that caught my eye. It was from The Girl Who Ate Everything and I have tried a few of her recipes before that they were all amazing! This recipe is no different. They are large, chewy, bakery-quality cookies. I think I have eaten more of them that my husband has!

The traditional version of this is often called puppy chow or muddy buddies. Since Halloween is approaching I am calling this awesome pumpkin spice version werewolf kibble. You could also go with graveyard gravel or something like that. Whatever you want to call it, this stuff is highly addictive. I am going to be really disappointed when the pumpkin spice kisses are no longer available.

This awesome fudge tastes just like a creamsicle! The orange and white marbled color makes it great for a Halloween treat too. The original recipe said to put it in a 13 x 9" pan but I thought it came out a little thin so next time I will probably use the 9 x 9" pan that I usually put fudge in. Other than that, I love this recipe!

Once September rolls around, I have to break out the apple recipes. It just isn't fall without them. First up were some baked apples on pancakes since that is my favorite thing to order from Cracker Barrel. It took three tries but I finally came up with a recipe that I really like! These would also be awesome on some vanilla ice cream or you can just eat them with a fork. YUM!

Fellow cake batter lovers - rejoice! It is time for another batter infused recipe and this one is even better than the last. These little truffles are easy to put together and highly addictive. Next time I make them I am going to have to send most of them to the office with Shelby because I couldn't stop eating them. They have all the flavor of cake batter with the texture and richness of sugar cookie dough. Delish.

Soda pop cupcakes were the first thing that Shelby ever cooked for me. We were still "just friends" at that point and he apparently had a huge crush on me so he may have been attempting to woo me with his mad baking skills. ;) If I remember correctly, he made them with Fufu Berry Jones Soda that night.
After making these using a bunch of different flavors, we have decided that orange soda is our favorite. It has the most flavor and is something that you don't hear of everyday. You can use any flavor of pop that you like though and try mixing it with different cake flavors like chocolate cake mix with root beer.

I always loved eating cookie dough as a kid. However, as I have gotten older my fear of food poisoning has curbed my desired to eat anything with raw eggs. So I was thrilled when I found this recipe for safe cookie dough. Now I can eat to my heart's content with my only fear being a sugar overdose!
