Why, hello there! We’ve been trucking along through summer/fall, and I’ve happily settled into a routine of batch cooking, shopping just a few days ahead, and not planning out a whole week at a time. But here we are again. Because I have dessert goals.
- Pumpkin pie. It’s been requested by the 7-year-old-dear-God-where-has-the-time-gone-he’s-gigantic. It’s his favorite, he’s been asking politely for weeks, I have ALL the ingredients, and there’s just no excuse to not make it.
- Apple crisp! I made an apple pie last week (or maybe before then), and while it was well received, I personally was underwhelmed. On to apple crisp, which I will eat any time of the day or night.
- All the cookies. It’s the time of year when I love having frozen (but still homemade) cookie dough on hand. I make them into the proper sized little disks, freeze them, and then can bake off however many I want to at a time. I’m definitely making both chocolate chip, and chocolate with peanut butter chips, but I may add in another variety as well.
- Cheesecake! I received an Instant Pot, which is an electronic pressure cooker. Very stable. Very reliable. Very good at making cheesecakes. I even have mini mason jars for individual servings and gifting. I just need to DO IT, and then eat all the non-gifted cheesecakes.
That’s it for now! What desserts on your to-make or to-eat list? Tell me, or better yet, share some with me.
