I’ve been culling through my recipe files. Found some old favorites in the cookies, cakes, and pies sections.
Apple Crisp complete on one little handwritten 3×5 card:
(translation found at: Apple Crisp)
Also, Peppermint Pattie Brownies (sure, you could just add the candies to a boxed mix of brownies, but once you make these you won’t want to . . .)
and Apple Cake with Cream Cheese Icing. I’m not much on baking cakes, but this one, courtesy of my grad school friend Janet Davidson, has remained a favorite. Similar to carrot cake, but without the vegetables 🙂
None of these are very appropriate on a day when it’s supposed to reach 90°F, but keep them in mind for autumn.
