Pear Scones with Caramel Drizzle

Image
I'm finishing up #FallFlavors week with what I feel is one of the most underrated items of the season, pears.  I know that I'm guilty of going all gaga for apples as soon as the calendar flips to September, but there are so many awesome pear varieties available too!
This post is sponsored in conjunction with Fall Flavors Week. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.
Now, I realize calling these scones may cause some contention with people. Some would call them biscuits or shortcakes.  I'm not really one to feel obligated to stick to tradition when it comes to food, I just want it to taste delicious!

Whatever you call them, these little treats are chock full of bits of pear, beautiful vanilla flavor, and then taken totally over the top with a drizzle of caramel sauce. 

Once again, my thanks to Ellen, Christie, and Heather for hosting, as well as to all of the amazing sponsors who made #FallFlavors Week …

Hasselback Sweet Potatoes

I hope you're enjoying #FallFlavors Week as much as I am, there are so many great recipes being shared! This post is sponsored in conjunction with Fall Flavors Week. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.
I'm a little bit late jumping on the hasselback potato train, but when I opened the box of beautiful items Melissa's Produce sent, they were the first thing that came to mind. 
I love brown sugar with sweet potatoes, so I combined it with some melted butter and to gild the lily, I added some Taylor & Colledge Vanilla Bean Paste. I brushed that between the slices and over the top.
I popped it into the oven to roast for 25 mins.  Next I separated the slices and sprinkled Nairn's Oatcakes Oatgraham crumbs between each one. I popped them back in the oven for another 22 mins or so, until the outside was crispy and the inside was cooked through.
So delicious!  Be sure to go down below and enter for …

Apple Tea-ramisu

Welcome to Fall Flavors week! I'm kicking things off with a spin on one of my husband's favorite desserts, tiramisu.  Since I used Republic of Tea's Caramel Apple instead of coffee, I've dubbed it Tea-ramisu!This post is sponsored in conjunction with Fall Flavors Week. I recieved product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of my recipes. All opinions are my own.


I used store bought ladyfingers, but you absolutely can make your own, or you can even use angel food cake. I laid them out and then used a pastry brush to soak them with the tea.  Then I added a drizzle of Torani Puremade Caramel Syrup.


Next comes the cream cheese layer. 


After that, the lovely caramel apples. You can cheat and use the canned Caramel Apple Pie filling and chop it up, but I make these a lot in fall and use them for a ton of things.


Finish it off with some sweetened whipped cream, and another drizzle of caramel if you like.


My guys were nagging me to serve this up, so I onl…

Lemon Oatmeal Sugar Cookies

I'm closing out #BacktoSchoolTreats Week with something that's always a winner here- cookies! They are by far my favorite thing to bake, and I'm always on the hunt for new recipes to try out on my guys.


I found these Lemon Oatmeal Sugar Cookies by Susan M. on the Taste of Home Website. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, but rather than flattening them with a sugared glass, I scooped them and rolled them in raw sugar before placing them on the baking sheet.


I love how these turned out, great flavor and texture and oats also make them acceptable for breakfast, right? 


Thanks again to Terri from Love & Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures and to all of the awesome bloggers who shared recipes for #BacktoSchoolTreats Week!  Check out their contributions using the links down below.
