CHERRY CREAM CHEESE COBBLER

Cherry Cream Cheese Cobbler - TSLC

April 23, 2014 is National Cheesecake Day!  This Cherry Cream Cheese Cobbler is easy to make and tastes like a cheesecake in a cobbler. What could be better than cheesecake and cobbler?  Just add a big scoop of ice cream or some whipped cream for a dessert your family and friends will love.

1/2 cup butter or 1 stick or 8 tablespoons, melted

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon almond extract (could use vanilla extract)

1 cup milk

1 egg

1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

Melt butter in a 9 x 13 baking dish. (I just put mine in the oven for a few minutes). In a bowl combine sugar, flour, baking powder and whisk together.  Add the extract, milk and egg to the flour mixture and stir to mix. Pour this over the melted butter in your baking dish but don’t mix it together.  Drop spoonfuls of the cherry pie filling into the flour and butter.  Cut the cream cheese up in small pieces and drop into the cobbler.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes.  If top is not brown enough by then put under broiler for a few minutes.  Makes 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!

Note:  You can use different pie fillings such as blueberry, apple, etc.

APPLE PIE WITH PEANUT BUTTER CRUMBLE

Apple Pie with Peanut Butter Crumble - TSLC

This apple pie has peanut butter and oats in the crumble on top.  If you like apples and peanut butter, you will love this pie. It is great with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream on top for dessert or with milk for a snack anytime.  I like it for breakfast with coffee.

1 (9 inch) pie shell, unbaked (I use Pillsbury frozen pie crust)

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup white granulated sugar, divided (1/4 and 1/4)

2 eggs

1 cup all-purpose flour, divided (3/4 and 1/4)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 cups apples, peeled and sliced or chopped (I used about 5 small red delicious apples, you can use any baking apple)

1 cup rolled oats (could use quick-cooking oats)

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 cup peanut butter, (I used extra crunchy, can use regular)

2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

In a large bowl, whisk together sour cream, 1/4 cup sugar, eggs, 1/4 cup flour and vanilla extract.  Fold in apples and toss.  Pour into pie shell.  Mix together oats, 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and ground cinnamon.  Either in the microwave or on the stove melt the peanut butter and butter together until smooth. Add to the oat mixture and sprinkle over apples.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 50-55 minutes until golden brown and center is set.  Enjoy!

Note:  This pie should be refrigerated.

MANDARIN ORANGE CAKE

Mandarin Orange Cake - TSLC

This Classic Mandarin Orange Cake is delicious and makes a wonderful dessert for any holiday meal.  This cake is also called “Pig Pickin’ Cake or Pig Lickin’ Cake” in the South. An easy  summertime dessert to serve family and guests.

Cake

1 (16.5 ounce) Duncan Hines Classic Butter Golden Cake Mix

3/4 cup cooking oil (I use Canola oil)

4 eggs

1 (15 ounce) can mandarin oranges, undrained (Save several of the orange sections to decorate the top of your cake)

Frosting

1 (3.4 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding

2 (8 ounce) cans crushed pineapple, undrained

1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip, thawed

In a large mixing bowl mix all the cake ingredients until well blended.  Spray 3 (9 inch) round cake pans with cooking spray. Fill each cake pan with about 2 cups of cake mix.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes checking for doneness as ovens vary.  Your layers will be thin. Remove from oven and let cool.

Combine all the frosting ingredients and mix together with a spoon.  I don’t use a mixer for the frosting.  Frost cake adding frosting between the layers.

Note:  The original recipe for this cake called for an 11 ounce can of mandarin oranges for the cake. I used a 15 ounce can so I would have extra oranges to decorate the cake with and it worked great. I used all the juice from the 15 ounce can, too. It did not seem to make a difference. You could also bake this cake in 2 layers. You will just have thicker layers. My layers were only about an inch thick. You will not have big layers.

Croissant Fruit Bake

TSLCCroissantDessert1

This easy Croissant Fruit Bake is great for breakfast or to make for a dessert. I made this with blackberries because we love them but you can add whatever fruit you desire. I made this recipe with a few healthier ingredients such as almond milk and greek yogurt cream cheese.

3 Large Croissants

1.5 cups of blackberries

1 package of Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese (I find this at Walmart)

2 eggs

1/2 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk

1/3 cup of white granulated sugar (could probably use stevia for a healthier option)

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

In a 9X9 baking dish, tear croissants into smaller pieces then cover with blackberries. Cream together, cream cheese, eggs, and sugar while slowly adding the almond milk. Add vanilla extract.  Once thoroughly mixed together pour liquid over croissants and berries. Let stand for 10-15 minutes so liquid soaks into your croissant pieces. Then cook for 45- 50 minutes on 350 degrees. The top may brown a little, if you feel it is browning to much you can cover with foil for the last 10-15 minutes of baking. Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!
