Jenn of Jenn & Food, Perfect Together
from New Jersey
Double Crust Apple Pie
What’s fall without a slice of Apple Pie? Jenn shares with us a Food Network recipe for Apple Pie which is perfect for the fall weather. Using a 10 inch pie plate and a cookie sheet, her entry features 2 pieces of essential bakeware. Check out her blog for links to the recipe and additional mouth watering pictures!
Nancy of Gaga in the Kitchen
from California
Stuffed Baguettes
Move over Hot Pockets (and the like)! Nancy’s got an even better snack with her Stuffed Baguettes. These baguettes are stuffed and baked with your favorite sandwich fillings baked right in. These can be made using a baking sheet, baking stone or peel. Check out Nancy’s blog for the recipe & details on creating the perfect dough for these and what she stuffed her baguette with!
Oggi of I Can Do That!
from Virginia
Hokkaido Milky Loaf
I have been a fan of Oggi’s blog for a few months now… and her entry probably gets the “Coolest Bakeware” award. Using Pullman bread pans, she creates these delicately soft, yet sturdy loaves of bread. Check out Oggi’s blog for details on the bread pans she used and for the recipe!
Karen of Loves To Eat Weblog
from Florida
Caramel Bars
Karen is such a fabulous cook & baker that all her entries to my blogging events are so tasty. This one was no exception, especially since I’m a big fan of caramel. Her Caramel Bars were made using an 8×8 Pyrex pan and to prevent a big mess and easy removal from the pan, she uses foil! (Such a great tip, by the way!) Check out Karen’s blog for the recipe!
Jaime of Good Eats ‘n Sweet Treats
from Texas
Peanut Buttercups with Peanut-Penuche Icing
Another one of my fave blogs is Jaime’s. This time she makes me crave something peanut buttery with her entry to Tasty Tools. Using her muffin pan, she creates these Peanut Buttercups… and if that wasn’t enough, she tops them with a Peanut-Penuche Icing. YUM! Check out Jaime’s blog for the recipe and more drool-worthy food pics!
Carly of Live. Laugh. Grow.

For a fabulous breakfast dish, you’ll need to check out Lindsey’s blog for this recipe!
Kristina of About a Bit of Everything
from Illinois
Brownie Muffins
I had the pleasure of meeting and brunching with Kristina last weekend (along with some other fellow culinary divas) and she definitely has an appreciation of good eats. Her entry is definitely a delicious one because she creatively used a mini muffin pan to make brownie muffins. Is it a brownie? Is it a muffin? Regardless, it sure looks chocolatey good and you’re able to find the recipe in her blog!

Scones Scones Scones & English Tea Party Roundup!

Time to warm up our ovens now that fall is almost officially here. Today friends joined me in a Scones adventure where we made a base scone dough and added various ingredients to customize them. There are some wonderful scones made given the ingredients available.

For add in ingredients, I offered:
nuts: walnuts, pecans, almonds
fruit: raspberries, blueberries, lemon zest
chips: chocolate chips, cappuccino chips
sprinkles: caramel sprinkles, cinnamon sprinkles

Here is the base recipe we made for our scone dough, an ATK recipe that I previously highlighted in my blog:

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream

1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat the oven to 425 degrees.

2. Place the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together.

3. Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, quickly cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal with a few slightly larger butter lumps.

4. Add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of additional DRY ingredients until thoroughly incorporated.

5. Stir in the heavy cream with a rubber spatula or fork until the dough begins to form, about 30 seconds.
6. Add 1/4 – 1/2 cup of additional WET ingredients (such as fruit, preserves, speciality butters) and gently fold into the dough so that everything is evenly distributed throughout.
7. Gather the dough and all dry flour bits and press the dough into an 8 inch cake pan, then turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface. With a sharp knife or bench scraper, cut the dough into 8 wedges.

8 Bake until the scone tops are light brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Here are pictures of our event and final scones, which we swapped:

The parade of scones!
