Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake

It’s always nice to have some yummy and easy dessert recipes on hand for fall, because it’s such a busy time of year! Like this Pumpkin Pie Dump Cake—just “dump” most of the ingredients into a large bowl, stir them together, and pour in a pan…and then sprinkle on the toppings—in this case, dry cake mix, pecans, and toffee bits. With melted butter drizzled over everything. So rich and delicious, no one will ever know it’s so easy to make!

Fresh Pear Crisp

Hello friends! It’s been a little quiet around here because I was on a trip in the earlier part of September that I plan on sharing about with you, but I haven’t had time yet to go through photos—so hopefully I’ll be able to do that in a week or two! In the meantime, it’s mid-September already and autumn is just around the corner. This is the time of year when I like to make recipes with fall fruit like apples and pears, and this Fresh Pear Crisp is a yummy dessert you’ll want to try!

Pumpkin Pecan Squares

If you’re a fan of pumpkin pie, you’ll have to try these Pumpkin Pecan Squares! They have a yummy pumpkin pie-type filling with a cookie-like crust. A crumbly mixture of flour, sugar, brown sugar, and butter make up the crust, and you use part of that mixture (with chopped pecans added in) to sprinkle on top of the pumpkin filling, creating a slightly crumbly, buttery topping. So it’s a cross between a pie and a cookie bar—the best of both worlds, you could say! 🙂

Rustic Plum Tart

I’m not the greatest pie-maker…I still need to improve my baking skills in that area! So I thought I would attempt an easier recipe, and this Rustic Plum Tart I found at MyRecipes seemed like a good place to start. The original recipe has a note that says, “If the plums are very ripe, their juices may ooze out of the tart and onto the parchment paper [lined pan], but this adds to the desserts’ rustic charm.” When I made my tart, there was a little oozing, but not that much, and I really liked the rustic look of this tart. There’s a syrup made from the extra juices of the plums, which is drizzled over the entire tart after baking and then drizzled a little more on each piece when served. Those drizzles of syrup makes the tart really yummy!
