Easy Sugar Cookies
My 12 year old son made these - quick and easy peasy. In my stand mixer, he creamed the butter and sugar together first. Once it was well creamed, he added the egg and vanilla. He measured and mixed the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and added them to the creamed mixture. Realizing he forgot half the butter, we added softened butter at the end. It turned out just fine. My whole family enjoyed this spur of the moment treat.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
I tried a similar, well-rated pumpkin bread recipe but prefer this one. Great texture, not too sweet, and very flavorful. Changes I made? Nothing major. I subbed half the oil with applesauce and chopped up semi-sweet and dark chocolate chips because I didn't have minis. My boys liked it and are asking for more as I type. I'm sure it will all be gone in 24 hrs. This one goes into my recipe box!

Peach Cobbler Dump Cake I
Turned out amazing. Will make it again, and again. I used fresh peaches left over from canning. Ladled in some left over simple syrup, spread the dry cake mix evenly over the top, thinly cut and placed butter over nearly every inch. I only had to use a wee bit more butter than called for to cover it well. I left out the cinnamon because I didn't have any. This was not a problem. I was unsure about how liquid the juicy part was after baking but realized soon enough that it thickens up as it cools. Ate it warm and had seconds. Okay, maybe it was thirds. Don't judge me.
