These individual apple pies baked in apples are the perfect Fall dessert. As soon as I saw the first crop of apples come into the markets, I knew I wanted to try these.

Aren’t they just adorable?

Frost Me Cupcakes, a gourmet cupcake bakery that was a winner on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, recently opened a shop in Seaport Village, and a smaller stand inside UTC mall.

We were at the mall recently and decided to check it out.

Cupcakes are $3.50 each or you can buy sets of 4, 6 or 12 for a discounted price.

These are the four we purchased: blueberry hazelnut, chocolate ganache, red velvet, espresso chocolate

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite things to bake in the Fall. However, if you’ve ever baked them yourself, you know that adding pumpkin puree to cookies will give them a cakey texture.

There’s not necessarily anything wrong with that– I love that they taste like mini pumpkin cakes. But sometimes you just want a chewy cookie.

Over the years, I’ve tried to make a chewy pumpkin cookie. I’ve tried various recipes that promised to be chewy and I’ve tried making my own. So far, I haven’t yet found “the one.” But that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to research.
