Yummy fall recipes

So I am still feeling guilty because I really need to update you all on our crazy little life but alas...busy would be the title. I decided to take the easy route and post some of my most favorite new recipes this fall. Serious yummy!!! This one is from my BFF Dana Lyman and it may just replace the pumpkin pie as a must have for Thanksgiving dinner!

Dana’s Pumpkin Cobbler

1 box yellow cake mix
(set aside 1 c. dry mix)
1/2 c. melted butter
4 eggs
1 lg. can pumpkin (29 oz.)
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. soft butter
1/4 c. sugar
1 c. chopped pecans

Combine yellow cake mix (minus 1 cup), 1/2 cup butter and 1 egg.
Then spread into 9x13 inch pan.
FILLING: Combine pumpkin, 3 eggs, brown sugar, milk, vanilla,
and cinnamon. Pour over crust.
TOPPING: 1 cup cake, 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, nuts,
(may use a little more butter). Mix together, sprinkle over top
of filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.
Chill and serve with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.

This one is from a recipe swap last year so I don't know who it came from but it was the hit of Thanksgiving. I admit I just tasted a little cuz I hate baked raisins almost as much as eggs but I trust the fact that someone may have tried licking the pan.

Sweet Potato Casserole

3 c. sweet potatoes mashed (canned yams work)
1 c. sugar
1 stick margarine
2 eggs (beaten)
1 t. vanilla
½ c. raisins (optional)
1 c. mini marshmallows
Mix all ingredients and pour into a buttered casserole dish.

1 c. brown sugar
1 c. chopped pecans
1 c. flour
1 stick margarine melted
Mix all ingredients and sprinkle on top of potatoes.
Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.

And finally...who can go wrong with this recipe from the creative Margie Aslett's blog. It is serious happiness in the shape of a muffin!

Margie's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
2 C oil
2 C brown sugar
4 C sugar
8 eggs
1 1/2 TBS baking soda dissolved in 1/3 C warm water
4 C pumpkin
7 C flour
2 TSP baking powder
2 TSP salt
1 1/2 TSP ginger
2 TSP cloves
2 TSP nutmeg
4 TSP cinnamon
3 cups Chocolate Chips semi sweet or milk or both
1 C warm water
This makes 80 muffins...So can easily be cut in half!Bake at 350 for 10-15 mins.
until cake like

Happy fall!!
