This morning, Maggie's Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread just went in the oven. YUM -- can't wait. It's been too long :) I thought I'd share the recipe since it's always nice to stumble upon a good recipe. I remember the first time I had this when Simon (now 12) was a little toddler. I think it might have been the year Jon made pumpkin stew -- was it pumpkin?? I don't think I'll share that recipe.
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread
from Maggie Rother
1 c. cooked pumpkin (I use Libby's)
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 2/3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. flour
Store bread in the fridge.
:: And while I'm at it, another great, simple, easy, delicious fall recipe. Had this at a friend's house this fall and luckily stumbled across the recipe on Pinterest the very next day.
Layered Caramel Apple Dip
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
16 oz caramel apple dip from the store (we had to make ours from scratch, but it was real simple)
1 cup Heath bits (sold next to the chocolate chips)
Apple slices -- granny smith was awesome
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar. Spread in the bottom of a small platter or dinner plate. Spread caramel dip/sauce on top. Sprinkle Heath bits on top. Arrange apple slices around the edge.
So simple and tastes just as good as it will look :)
:: The last and sweetest thing to post today-- both figuratively and probably literally -- this year we will be trick-or-treating on Lincoln Street. :) So Nebraska folks get ready... Where's the closest pumpkin patch?
Oooh, I'm starting to smell the pumpkin bread right now...
