Spiced Pumpkin Cake Cookies


These Spiced Pumpkin Cake Cookies make a quick dessert or after school snack. They’re full of cinnamon, pumpkin and spice flavor…perfect for Fall! 2015-09-20-7166 This cookie is a wonderful cookie for Fall! It’s easy to make and it has some of the best Fall flavors. The thing I like most about this cookie is it doesn’t taste like your average cake mix cookie, this cookie is SO much better!

I decided to combine spice cake mix and pumpkin cake mix to make the dough along with a few other ingredients and I couldn’t have been happier!

Of course the real test was when I sent some cookies to school with my kids and their containers came back almost empty. Why almost empty? They decided they wanted to keep some for themselves, so they did. Too funny. :)

Let’s walk through how to make my Spiced Pumpkin Cake Cookies.

Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops


These Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops have just become a new favorite in our house! Pumpkin spice, chocolate fudge brownie and milk chocolate make for a wonderful Fall inspired treat!

2014-10-16_3348 Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops

My Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops are a fun twist on both brownies and pumpkin spice. These brownie pops are delicious chocolate fudge brownies that are moist and tender and basically enrobed in a wonderful milk chocolate and finished off with a nice touch of pumpkin spice.

What does a nice touch of pumpkin spice mean? So glad you asked. :)

So let’s take it from the top, using pumpkin spice creamer in place of water in the brownie batter creates that perfect hint of wonderful pumpkin spice along with the chocolate fudge flavor. A few simple steps later the brownie pops are dipped in a wonderful milk chocolate coating.

Then there’s another accent of pumpkin spice added to the top of each brownie pop. Yes, it really does taste like pumpkin spice! Then I like to top off my Pumpkin Spice Brownie Pops with some fun sprinkles perfect for the season!

Enjoy, my fellow brownie and pumpkin spice lovers!

Cinnamon-Spice Muffin Cakes


Cinnamon-Spice Muffin Cakes Title

You know how there are just times you want something other than chocolate? I know, I know, I love chocolate too! But there are times I just need something else.

Besides, I love baking things that my kids can have for breakfast with some fresh fruit and a glass of cold milk.

I do various twists on our favorite combinations of muffin cakes (or whatever you want to call them) all year long. Now I usually do them in my muffin top pans. I love, love, love my muffin top pans!

They can be hard to get your hands on because they’re a hot item right now. But that’s not why I like them. I like them because it’s a great size for a lot of different things!





1 package (regular size) spice cake mix, any brand

eggs and oil called for on back of cake mix

water called for on back of cake mix (I used Vanilla Almond Milk, any water or milk will work)

1 (6 ounce) container apple crisp yogurt (I used Yoplait, but you can use any brand)

3/4 cups Caramel Bits (I used Kraft Caramel Bits)


3/4 cups powdered sugar

1-2 tablespoons Cinnabon Gourmet Coffee Creamer, depending on how thick you like your glaze


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray muffin top pans with nonstick spray; set aside. Be sure to use nonstick spray. It helps keep caramel from sticking.

2. In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, vanilla almond milk, eggs, and oil until with an electric mixer on medium for 2 minutes or more. Stir in apple crisp yogurt and caramel bits. Pour 1/4 cup batter into each cup.

3. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into plain cake area comes out clean. (Insert toothpick in an area where there is no caramel). I like to place the muffin top pan on a cookie sheet when baking, but it isn’t nevessary.

4. For best results cool 20 minutes before moving. Remove muffin cakes from muffin pans and cool completely.

5. For glaze, in a small bowl, stir together powdered sugar and cinnamon creamer until a desired glaze consistency. Drizzle glaze over muffin cakes. Let dry completely.

Makes 12 muffin cakes.
