Now, onto the point of this post. We've been spending most of our short time here in Texas concerning ourselves with food. So far, we've checked three places off our list- Whataburger, Taco Bueno, and Dudley's! Yum yum! We've also gotten started with some cooking. Of course, dessert is the most important part of the meal.
I found the recipe for these babies on Picky Palate and just had to try them. They were super easy and so delicious! If you're looking for a last minute dessert (that easily doubles as a great breakfast treat!), you should give these a try!

We also baked up my Granny's famous Paper Bag Apple Pie. If I could only eat one dessert for the rest of my life, this would be it. I love this pie so much, it's what I always request as my birthday "cake" of choice. So what makes it so special? First, the crumble topping. Instead of your standard crust, we sprinkle a mixture of butter, cinnamon, and sugar over it. Second, the paper bag. The pie is baked in a brown grocery bag and comes out perfectly cooked- juicy and lightly browned. I know my grandma is not the first to bake an apple pie like this, but in my book, it will always be her special recipe, and I'll never bake an apple pie any other way.

What are your holiday standards? Do you like to try new recipes or stick to your family's favorites? However you celebrate, I hope it's perfectly sweet!
