I love to bake -- and sometimes cook! Here are some of my favorite recipes that I've developed myself.

Pumpkin Pie a pumpkin pie with a pawprint made out of pie crust in the center

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly beat eggs with a whisk in a large bowl, then mix in the rest of the ingredients. Fill the pie shell with the mixture. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake for 45 minutes. Let sit for two hours.

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add the eggs to the creamed mixture and beat. Add the peanut butter and vanilla, and beat until combined. Add flour mixture slowly to the creamed mixture and blend together. Fold in the chocolate chips. Roll into good-sized balls and flatten with a fork in a criss-cross pattern. These cookies should be on the larger side. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 13-15 minutes, until just done. Let the cookies cool before serving. Makes about 36 cookies. Cookies should be dense and chunky!
