Monster Eye Cookies Recipe

These delicious cookies start with a cake mix base so that takes the baking powder, rising, flat, yadda, yadda worries out of the equation and you end up with moist, plump cookies. A little doctoring of a cake mix can go a long way!

This is a pretty basic recipe. If you want to skip the eyes, you could choose different colors and make these for any season – colorful eggs + pink for Easter, red or green + sprinkles for Christmas, deep red + hearts for Valentine’s day, etc.

Monster Eye Cookies Notes:

• You can choose any food colors (or food gels) you like. If you are making these for Halloween or a Monster party some good color choices are green, orange, and purple (purple is an excellent food gel color as it will make it deep and vibrant). If you don’t have these colors, McCormick has an easy to understand food coloring color guide. Since you are dividing this dough into three sections, the cake mix colorants as listed will not work.
Orange – 17 drops yellow + 3 drops red
Neon Purple is a great color to use on these cookies.
Neon Green is a great color to use on these cookies.

• You can use one large eye centered in a green cookie for a Mike Wazowski look (who else loved Monsters, Inc?!?)

• The small and large eyes are a great staggered look. You can also do many small eyes only. The large eyes are best used sparingly when used alone, so one or three. You can use as many or as few eye candies on these cookies as you like to achieve the look and vibe that fits your event.

• Use parchment paper to line the bottom of your jelly roll pan – it will make the cake removal much easier.

• For my UK and Australian friends: confectioners sugar is icing sugar (powdered sugar, 10x).

Easy Halloween Bats Candy Treats

3 candy treats made up to look like bats, on a butcher block cutting board

It does not get any easier than this for cute Halloween snacks and treats. This “recipe” is a great one to make with your children or grandchildren. Everything comes together quickly, and if there is a little extra peanut butter on a batwing, so what?

7 candy treats made up to look like bats, on a butcher block cutting board, a plate of cookies in the upper right, a bowl of candy eyes in the upper left


Easy Halloween Bats Candy Treats Notes:

• Ideally, 1 Oreo cookies makes 4 ‘batwings’. But Oreos are fragile cookies and tends to break and crumble easily. So keep a few extra to be on the safe side. Save the broken Oreos. Run them through a food processor to make Oreo crust for your favorite no-bake pies or icebox cakes.

• You do not have to use a baggie for the peanut butter, a piping bag and narrow piping tip (say, a #2) will work.

• While I have not done it, Rolo’s would probably work too. If peanut butter is an issue, you could use candy melts, or chocolate frosting, to attach the wings.

• This “recipe” can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, etc., to accommodate your needs.

Country Style Fried Apples Recipe

country-style fried apples in a white bowl on a grey background


My whole house smells like apples, and I love it! These homemade fried apples can be eaten warm or topped with vanilla ice cream, and they taste just like apple pie, minus the crust. Straight out of Grandma’s country kitchen, these delicious, easy to make country-style fried apples will remind you of down-home cooking at its very best.

Country Style Fried Apples Recipe

Mmmm apples! Apples are a delicious source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. Check out the apples from New York website for more apple nutritional information! And, here is a great article with all the benefits apples bestow upon our bodies!

Popular Apple Varieties in the United States:

Most of these apple varieties are available in your local store, farm grove, or at your local farmstand in the north. If you live in New York State, as I do, you know apple picking is a very popular family outing!!

As many of you know, Hubby and I spent a lot of time at Cornell taking Max to the vet hospital the last few years. We were able to see the Cornell Orchards (which are basically across from the vet hospital, with a few roads and parking lot in between), and buy apples at their Orchard Store more than a few times (free parking!). A number of these popular apples on the list below were developed in New York State. And, Cornell continues to work on new apple varieties we can all enjoy!

But what apples are best to cook with? Which ones are sweetest? Which are tart? Well, our friends at the US Apple Association have these great tips and descriptions so you can choose the perfect apple for the “task”:

• Cortland – Founded more than 120 years ago by horticulturalists in New York State, Cortland is a beautiful and tart apple.
Best use: Corland apples browns slower than most when sliced,it is great for serving up as a snack or in a salad.
Available in the fall through early winter.

• Crispin – Sweet, refreshing and super crisp.
Best use: eating, baking, freezing, or cooking into sauce.
Available year-round.

• Empire – From the Empire State, New York, these delicious apples are a cross between Red Delicious and McIntosh and were developed by the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. This crisp, juicy apple has a delightful sweet-tart flavor and creamy white flesh.
Best use: all-purpose apple.
Available between September and July.

• Fuji – Fuji is a cross between Ralls Janet and Red Delicious. Sweet flavor and firmness.
Best use: fresh for snacking
Available year-round, beginning in September.

• Gala – Crisp, juicy, and very sweet.
Best use: snacking.
Available year-round, harvesting starts Mid-July

• Granny Smith – Very tart flavor.
Best use: an all-purpose apple, Grannies work equally well as a snack or in pies and sauce.
Available year-round, harvested in August

• Jonagold – A blend of Jonathan and Golden Delicious apples, New York native Jonagold offers a unique honey-tart flavor and crispy, juicy, nearly yellow flesh.
Best use: eating fresh and for cooking.
Available October through July.

• McIntosh – Juicy, tangy, tart McIntosh has a tender, white flesh. Best use: snacking, applesauce, pies
Available September through May

• Paula Red – Sweet and tart
Best use: snacking and making applesauce.
Available: August

• Red Delicious – Sweet, crispy, juicy, the Western Red Delicious are elongated in shape, with pronounced “feet”, the Eastern-grown Delicious are more round. Best use: eaten fresh or in salads.
Rome

Country Style Fried Apples Recipe Notes:

• All the spices, and the brown sugar, are “to taste”. This means if you would like more cinnamon spice, use it! Not the biggest fan of allspice? Cut back on the spice. If you would like a sweeter apple, use more brown sugar.

• This recipe may be doubled or tripled. Just use a larger pan to accommodate all the apple slices.

• Choose an apple that will cook well. I have listed a few above, but some “better” choices, in my opinion, are Cortland, Empire, McIntosh, and Paula Red. You use the apple your family likes most when cooked.
