Last minute baking and a recipe....

Three pies and cashew Rocha yum! cant wait until the Rocha cools!

Pumpkin pie

Pumpkin apple pie, that I borrowed the recipe from a fellow blogger! Cant remember at the moment who it was, but thanks! cant wait to try it.

Apple pie, Meghans first, I let, no made her make it all by herself, top crust and all, Crust turned out really flaky, judging by the cinnamon and sugar treats we made with the left over crust, and she did really good! ( sorry bought the bottom shells in the pan frozen)

They have red plastic wrap on them, if they look funny.

And in these wrappers is Wackey Cake, a recipe my mother-in-law used to make for the boys. Middle brother doesnt like frosting so this is perfect. It will cure anyones chocolate craving, and the top crust gets just a little bit crunchy, We also made little cupcakes out of some of the batter.

These are for brother one and brother two (aka middle brother) LOL. Wackey cake has no dairy products in it for those who have a problem with that and no eggs either.

The recipe......
