chuckle Autumn Recipes

I LOVE Autumn..everything about it!! Ive been searching for new recipes and came across these. Be sure to check out Amanda's "Autumn in my kitchen" right here on FC for some great recipes too!

Autumn Recipe Collection

By Brandie Valenzuela

Autumn is my most favorite season. My family and I get so excited when it comes, and we enjoy celebrating the season everywhere in our home...from the decor to meals! Here are some of the most favorite Autumn recipes in our home.

Caramel Marshmallow Apples

1 package (14 oz.) caramels
1 cup miniature marshmallows
1 tablespoon water
5-6 small apples
Wooden skewers

Line a baking sheet with buttered wax paper; set aside. Combine caramels, marshmallows, and water in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stiring constantly, until caramels melt. Cool slightly while preparing apples. Rinse and dry apples. Insert skewers into apples. Dip each apple in caramel mixture, coating apples. Place on prepared sheet. Refrigerate until firm. For a fun change, roll apples in crushed peanuts or drizzle with melted chocolate.

Pumpkin Pie Squares

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine

2 cans (15 oz. each) pumpkin
2 cans (12 oz. each) evaporated milk
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened

Combine the first four ingredients until crumbly; press into a greased 13"x9" baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, beat filling ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth; pour over crust. Bake for 45 minutes. Combine brown sugar, pecans, and butter; sprinkle over top. Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool. Cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.

Pumpkin Cake in a Jar

2/3 cup shortening
2 2/3 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups canned pumpkin
2/3 cup water
3 1/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts
8 pint-size wide mouth canning jars with lids and rings

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream shortening and sugar together, adding sugar slowly. Beat in eggs, pumpkin, and water; set aside. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, cloves, allspice, cinnamon, and baking soda. Add to pumpkin mixture and stir well. Stir in nuts. Grease jars well and fill each jar about half full. Place jars on baking sheet and bake for approximately 45 minutes. When done, remove jars, and wipe the sealing edge of the jars. Place lids on jars and close tightly with the ring.

Proper sealing of cakes in a jar: After the cake is cooked be sure to wipe the sealing edge of the jar clean. Place the lids on and close them tightly with the ring. You should here a "plinking" sound as the jar cools, meaning that they are sealed. You can also press on the lids after the jars have cooled -- if they are properly sealed, they should not move at all.

How to serve a cake in a jar: Open jar and slide knife around the inside of the jar to loosen the cake, and then slide the cake out. Slice and serve alone, with whipped cream, or even some ice cream! A 1-pint jar equals approximately 5 slices.

How long they keep: A cake in a jar that has been properly sealed will keep for up to a year.

Easy Caramel Apple Pie

1 frozen 9" pie crust
10 caramel candies; quartered
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp. lemon juice
3 cups Jonathon apples; unpeeled; cut into
1/2" cubes
2/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup pecans; chopped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, combine caramels and flour. Add apples, caramel topping and lemon juice; mix well. Pour mixture into crust; top with pecans. Bake on baking sheet at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until crust has browned. Cool.

Autumn Noodle Bake

1 16-oz. package egg noodles, cooked & drained
1 16-oz. sour cream
1 16-oz. cottage cheese
1 16-oz. jar of your favorite salsa
2 lbs. turkey or chicken, cooked & cubed
1 lb. cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, mix together sour cream, cottage cheese, salsa and meat. In a 13"x9" baking pan, layer cooked egg noodles, then meat mixture, and then a layer of shredded cheese. Continue with layers until near the top of pan -- top layer must end up with cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Snicker Bar Salad

6 full-sized Snickers candy bars, cut into small pieces
6 apples, cored & cut into bite-sized pieces
1 small container whipped topping
1 small box of instant vanilla pudding (do not prepare)

Mix dry pudding into whipped topping thoroughly. Add Snicker and apple pieces to whipped topping/pudding mixture. Chill.

Crockpot Apple Butter

7 cups applesauce, unsweetened
2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups honey
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. allspice

In a crockpot, mix all ingredients. Cover and cook on low heat for 14 to 15 hours, or until the mixture is deep brown. Pack while hot into 4 hot pint jars. Process in hot-water bath for 10 minutes, counting the time after the jars have been immersed and the water comes again to a rolling boil. Makes 4 pints.

These sound great!

All of your recipes sound so good and yummy! I don't know where to start!

I'm in the mood for Fall too, but all I've done is buy a pumpkin spice wallflower unit from Bath & Bodyworks to make my home smell good. Does that count?

Apple pancakes

Apple Pancakes
2/3 cups flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
2 cups of apples cut into 1/4-inch slices
3/4 cups butter
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Sift together the flour, 2 teaspoons sugar, and the salt. Beat eggs and milk together. Gradually add flour mixture; beat until smooth. Saute apples in 1/4 cup of butter until tender. Mix 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon together; toss with apples. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 6-inch diameter, deep frypan. Pour in the batter to a depth of about 1/4-inch. When set, place 1/4 of the apples on top; cover with more batter. Fry pancake until lightly browned on both sides. Keep warm. Repeat the procedure 3 times, until all batter and apples are used. Serve immediately.

Slow-Cooked Praline Apple Crisp

Prep Time: 25 min ; Start to Finish: 4 hr 25 min Makes: 10 servings (1/2 cup each)

The cinnamon-rich flavors of old-fashioned apple crisp meet the convenience of a slow cooker.

6medium-size crisp tart apples (Granny Smith or Braeburn), peeled if desired, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 6 cups)

1teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2cup quick-cooking oats

1/3cup packed brown sugar

1/4cup Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

1/2cup cold butter, cut into small pieces

1/2cup chopped pecans

1/2cup toffee bitsIce cream, if desired

1 . Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix apples and cinnamon to coat. Place in slow cooker.
2 . In medium bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, flour and butter with pastry blender or fork until crumbly. Stir in pecans and toffee bits. Sprinkle crumb mixture evenly over apples.
3 . Cover; cook on Low heat setting 4 to 6 hours. Serve apple crisp with ice cream.

If you'd like the apple slices to retain their shape and have a slightly firm texture, use the low end of the cook time range.
