Two Easy Baked Treats

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I so enjoyed the comments this morning about the Hallowe'en Exchange, and I thank you!!  It was a fun project from the start to finish.  Probably the hardest part of the whole process was making a decision on what colour purple to paint the box.

I thought today I would catch up the last couple of baked things  -   The first was from two weeks ago.  I was in the mood (and still am) for  Fall things, so I turned an old stand by "All Recipes" and found a recipe called "Easy Apple Crisp" - and it was so super easy!!!  After getting all the stuff together...

... Instead of a large single crisp, I chose to make two of them, I didn't double the recipe I just broke it up into to dishes.

I sent the larger of the two to work with Rico and kept back the smaller one for us to enjoy.  You can go HERE to get the recipe.  I did change the topping a bit with the addition of pecans and oats, and of course added some nutmeg, but other than that I followed the recipe.

The second treat I made was from a great Blog called Six Sisters' Stuff.  I stumbled on their recipe called "Samoa Brownies," a  great twist on the Girl Scout Cookie (which is a favorite of mine BTW).

Once again I got the stuff together to make them....


I toasted the coconut...

... which made the house smell really good!!  .....and after following the few easy steps they came together really fast.  These went over really well with both Rico's and my co-workers.  The recipe can be found HERE.


So there you go - two easy treats for Fall.

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks again for stopping by, do stop again!

Take care,

Hey, your post is making my mouth water!! BUT, the thing that caught my eye more was the blue cornflower corningware. I love it!! Every where I turn thrift stores are selling it and of course it jumps into my cart "take me". :) A real blast from the past. Do you have more pieces?

Oh, man, where do I apply to become a co-worker of you or Rico? Yummy! I suppose I could make things myself, but yours look so much nicer! (Besides, we could stitch at lunch.)

Well, I wasn't hungry... Seriously, I knew I shouldn't read this post. Now to go munch on something that does not compare. So, where does Rico work?? I need to get a job there if you send such yummies to the office!

Oh yum! Both look so good! I'm off to look at recipes. :D

Minnie said...

OMG both of those treats look so good. I know I can't eat them but nobody said I couldn't look and drool. Oops Does anyone know where I can get one of those rubber keyboard covers?

Akila said...

Oh wow, they look absolutely delicious. The brownie definitely is a must-try. Oh I have so many of the must-tries piling up, am building up recipe stash!!

Both treats look so yummy..... hummmm... I've to resist the temptation of baking them now, as I'm trying to do some diet....

Impressive. I may have to try the coconutty one once the husband is able to eat sugar again.

I baked a pecan pie. :) From scratch. Even the crust was from scratch.

Parsley said...

YUM! As soon as it cools off a little here, I'm going to do some baking too!

Deb said...

Both recipes look really, really good. I love toasted coconut, so I know I have to make that second recipe!!

Looks yummy in your neck of the woods! I would like to try to make brownies because I love the Girl Scout cookies.

Edgar, but OF COURSE you added pecans(pronunced correctly, of course) you are a southerner!!

I'm in Minnie's boat ... can look but not touch. Well, I guess I can touch but I definitely can't eat. Luscious looking though!
