Way Back Wednesday: November 20, 2019

Hey! Hey! It's Wednesday! Time for another trip down 12 years of memory lane. Let's see what was happening this week...and what recipes we need to make again. As always, click the recipe/cookie name to go to the original post.

From 2013, Peanut Butter Cup Turkey Cookies

These little guys are one of THE most popular cookies from Bake at 350. Every year, I get photos and emails from readers, letting me know that making them is one of their family traditions now. That makes my heart so happy. ♥

From 2011, Sweet Potato Pie

If you haven't planned your Thanksgiving pie baking yet...or even if you have...consider this sweet potato pie. It's better than any pumpkin pie I've ever tasted.

From 2014, Biscoff Coffee Cake with Biscoff Crumb Topping

Having company for the holidays? There's probably no better breakfast for a crowd than coffee cake. This one has that cookie butter flavor and an AH-mazing thick crumb topping.

From 2018, Chocolate Peanut Butter Acorns
Chocolate Peanut Butter Acorns | the easiest fall treat!
I made these just yesterday to take to a meeting. And, I think I'll be making them again today for my husband, who was a little distraught to see them leaving the house.

What recipes do you revisit year after year for Thanksgiving?

Gobble, baby!

This post isn't exactly what I'd envisioned. I made these cookies last year...just before Thanksgiving and never had a chance to post them. I did set a reminder on my phone to post them this week, and every time I saw that reminder, I would think, "I must have some really great photos of those cookies stored away."

Not so. I have 4 iPhone photos and no tutorial. BUT, I still wanted to post them because...
A. that little turkey is so dang cute, you might need to make it, and
B. there's a little story behind this set.

First...the turkey cookies are inspired by Melissa Joy Cookies. You can find her darling cookies on Instagram here. They're double-decker! You know I love a double-decker!

Notre Dame Football Cookies

By now, you know that I love a Notre Dame cookie set. Case in point: set 1, set 2, and set 3. A football-themed set has been in my mind for years because who can resist those gold helmets??? Also, I watched Rudy last week...talk about major inspiration. These are for the Notre Dame-Navy game, which is a very cool tradition.

I'll walk you through the recipes I used and some of the important details.

I used my go-to perfect every time vanilla almond cut-out cookies rolled to 3/8". For the icing...royal icing.

Ian Book and Chase Claypool are my cookie players. I'm not sure it shows up really well in the photos, but those helmets are GOLD!!! Love! I used Kings Gold by CK. The football player cookie cutter AND the design are by Sweet Sugarbelle.

Way Back Wednesday: November 13, 2019

This edition of Way Back (fun fact: every time I try to type "back," I type "bake") Wednesday has definite fall vibes. I'm feeling the urge to put on a scarf and boots as I write this. Let's get to this week's archives:

(As always, click the links to go to the recipe.)

From 2015, Old-Fashioned Spice Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Promise me you'll make this. Really, promise. You won't be sorry.

From 2010, Cranberry Apple Pie
the BEST pie for Thanksgiving! Cranberry Apple Pie
I posted this pie in 2010, but I've been making it forever! It's my very favorite pie at Thanksgiving.

From 2011, Four-Ingredient Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins
4-ingredient Cranberry Pumpkin Muffins
Yes, the recipe calls for a cake mix. Don't judge. They're delicious.

And from 2012, Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies
pumpkin cheesecake brownies ...a killer fall dessert!
It's weird. My jeans feel a little tighter just looking at that photo. (WORTH IT.)

What's happening in your kitchen this week? If you make any of these...or anything else from the blog...be sure to tag me @bridget350 on Instagram. I want to see!

Salted Double Chocolate Chewies from Midwest Made

More on these cookies after you swoon with me over this cookbook!

This fall has been filled with some gorgeous new cookbooks. Midwest Made: Big, Bold Baking from the Heartland by Shauna Sever is one of those gorgeous books. I've been a fan of Shauna's for ages now. She has several other cookbooks...you can find them here...I recommend all of them.

Midwest Made by Shauna Sever
Midwest Made is a love letter to bakes of the Midwest. Having spent most of my life in Texas, some are familiar to me and some are not. I want to make them ALL. As the Great British Baking Show has taught us, there's something super charming about regional bakes. The recipes and stories are written in Shauna's engaging voice. You'll feel like you not only have a treasure trove of new recipes but a brand new bestie taking you along for the ride.

Here's a peek inside... (that Kringle is HAPPENING when Jack is home for Christmas)

It was difficult to decide on a first recipe to try.
