    Cinnamon Roll Bars

    Thanksgiving! It’s soon! Do all the things!! Today I made a list of all the food I’m making. Then I made a grocery list. Then I made myself a schedule to reference the day of so that I know when I need to prep and cook everything. Overthinking things? Yes. Unnecessary? Very likely. I make a lot of things complicated that don’t need to be. It’s in my nature. BUT: these Cinnamon Roll Bars are quick, easy, and not at all fussy!

    Maple Cinnamon Cookies

    I’ve got these little mummies dressed up for Halloween, but you’re going to want to make these Maple Cinnamon Cookies all season long! They’re soft, chewy, and delicious! The warm flavors of maple, cinnamon, and brown sugar are perfect for the season! The finishing touch is the maple vanilla glaze, which I suggest you apply with abandon. πŸ˜‰

    Chocolate, Cinnamon, & Hazelnut Thumbprints

    Every Christmas, I make a million sweets to gift to neighbors and friends. Okay, not a million, but a LOT. Usually around twenty different varieties, and at least 3 dozen of each. So, in reality, *only* hundreds of cookies. Each year I make a list, and the usual suspects that I ALWAYS make go at the top. Then I add my new ideas at the bottom. Last year one of those “new” cookies has been promoted to an “ALWAYS” cookie: Chocolate, Cinnamon, & Hazelnut Thumbprints.

    Cinnamon Brioche Wreath

    Brioche is an amazing thing! You take some basic ingredients, and with some time and some love, it turns into something extraordinary. This is especially true of this Cinnamon Brioche Wreath! It also doesn’t hurt that it would be the perfect addition to your holiday festivities!

    Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

    The Fallstravaganza continues! Hey, I made a few recipes that weren’t pumpkin or apple… Recently I gushed about how much I love Fall and complained how Texas does NOT have Fall in my post for my Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie. Fall and comfort food go hand in hand, but when you’re homesick it’s just a necessity. As such, it was *necessary* for me to make the reciprocal baked good: Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls with Cinnamon Browned Butter Glaze.

    Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie

    We’re a little ahead of the first day of Fall (10 more days!), but I’ve officially allowed myself to start including fall flavors in my baking. Baking seasonally means that you’reΒ  working with the best flavors, and Fall flavors are amazing! In honor of apple season, which is now in full swing, I bring you this Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie. Good ol’ apple pie topped with cinnamon rolls and drizzled with a cream cheese glaze.

    Cinnamon Honey Scones

    Have you ever have one of those weeks? The kind that the weekend just isn’t long enough for you to recover? I think we all have. This past week was one of those for us. Ugh. When the weekend came, I chose to ignore the fact that my children were being total slugs in front of the TV. I ignored my messy house. Instead, I took the time to make these scrumptious Cinnamon Honey Scones.

    I’m so glad I did. πŸ™‚
