It is finally starting to cool down in Florida. Last week was in the 80’s and now it is in the 50’s and we are beyond thrilled. I’m actually wearing a sweater! The cooler weather puts me in the baking mood and we’re starting to think about the holidays.
I always host Thanksgiving at my house and we invite our family and some friends. I make a big turkey, have some seafood, and ‘all the fixins.’ This year my youngest daughter will be charge of the desserts since that is her thing but I’m going to make a snack for everyone to eat on while we cook and visit.
This year I’m making these Fall Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters. The sweet and salty combination is perfect for everyone. I found a recipe for Peanutty Pie Crust Clusters on the Pillsbury website and decided to tweak it and make it my own.
What you need –
1 package white chocolate
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 1/3 cup of salted peanuts
cinnamon to taste
nutmeg to taste
How to make it
Unroll the Pillsbury™ Pie Crust and lay it out. I sprinkled it with cinnamon and nutmeg.
They are a little puffy when they come out. While they are baking I start melting the white chocolate and butter on low. Once melted I then add the peanut butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and dark brown sugar.
When the pie crust squares are cool I add them into the mix as well as the peanuts stirring it all together. Then I put them in the freezer to chill for about 15 – 20 minutes. This is a super EASY and quick treat!
When I was at Sam’s getting my pie crust I found some AMAZING Member’s Mark French Bread. We love this stuff. It is so big and fluffy. A lot of times I make french toast with it and it is OH, so good!
Today I decided to have it with some whipped pumpkin butter. It is super easy and only takes a couple of minutes but with a big impact.
What you need
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 stick unsalted butter
1 tbsp canned pumpkin puree
All you have to do it mix it all together and spread it on the bread for a yummy treat!
