Fall Weather brings....

I absolutely love this time of year! The air is crisp and cool, beautiful colors surrounds me, the leaves start to change. I LOVE IT!! And with cooler weather, brings a cooler home. And what better way to warm it up, than to bake.

It all started with me thinking it would be nice to bake cookies for all the guys that my husband works with. And when I say " All" I mean 22 MEN!!! I'm kind of scared to take on this task, so... I have baked for my family instead :)

I've been scouring the internet, looking for different cookie recipes, and I came across Peanut butter cookies. They sounded perfect! Kyle got home from work early today to my surprise, so I thought it would be the perfect time to bake.

I get on-line to find the perfect recipe. Got it, a recipe of someones grandmother, that everyone in their family loves. So that means it must be good. So I write everything down and go to the kitchen and start to gather my measuring cups, bowls and mixer. As I search the cabinet for the ingredients, I find Hershey Heath bits. Hmm... I look on the back to see what kind of recipes would be good using the bits. And to my suprise, there is a Heath Bit Peanut butter cookie recipe! So I throw out dear old granny's recipe and get to work on the Heath bits. I think I should have stuck with the 1st one. They were okay, but nothing wonderful.

I've also been eying Apple Crips recipes. So tonight when I went to the grocery store, I passed the apples, and they were one sale!! Score. So tomorrow, I do believe while my mom is here, I will be baking some yummy Apple Crips. Yum, I can't wait!!

I'll leave you with this:
