Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies
Omg out of this world made these today,only thing I added was a half cup of crushed bran flakes. Gave the cookies some crunch, other then that I followed the recipe. I did bake for thirteen minutes. They are crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. I used a two and a half tablespoon cookie scoop. I have a bunch of bakery sized cookies that hubby just loves. This will be my forever peanut butter cookie recipe. Delish! I did put the cookie dough in the fridge while a batch was baking!

Easy Apple Crisp
I made this recipe this afternoon, I used Apple cider rather then water, and did put oats and also raisins in the topping. I used eight med. Granny Smith and gala smelled wonderful. Hubby and I tasted it out of the oven, delicious! Will have it for dessert tonight with vanilla ice cream and warmed caramel sauce drizzled over it. My new Apple crisp recipe, I did use a white cake mix if I had a spice or caramel mix I would of tried that! Great recipe! Will make often!

Apple Cinnamon White Cake
I have this baking now, house smells great, followed the recipe almost, after reading all reviews I added two tablespoons oil and used two chopped apples that I let sit in cinnamon sugar mixture. We can hardly wait! I did sprinkle some raisins on top..set timer for forty five minutes! I made a drizzle and this cake is delish! Did bake for almost an hour. This cake is very moist and with the added Apple and cinnamon it is a keeper. Next time I will make it in nine inch round pan...I cannot imagine anyone not loving this cake! Great job jingle bells! Yummy with fresh brewed coffee!
