Pumpkin Spice Latte Crumb Cake

Moist, sweet and spicy pumpkin cake full of canned pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, all spice and clove then topped with a cinnamon crunchy streusel with a hint of coffee.
This is the first recipe of several that I will be making this year that has the glorious pumpkin spice.
Pumpkin spice has ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground clove and ground all spice.
School supplies at the store are disappearing from the shelves and being replaced with Halloween/Autumn decor. *happy dance*
Even thou it is still a balmy 90 degrees outside pumpkin spice items are starting to appear as well. I for one is so happy about it.

The recipe is slightly different from crumb cakes that you may have seen, this has browned butter.

Lemon Drop Cookies

A sweet, tangy and creamy cookies with tons of tangy lemon juice, lemon zest and creamy white chocolate chips.

Summer is coming to a close, around where I live the kids start within the next two weeks. But it is still blazing outside.
 It is refreshing just like a cup of ice cold lemonade from a small cookie with lemon juice, lemon zest and white chocolate.
You also get a little kick from the ginger, it is not the gingerbread during the holidays. Just a little kiss.

To get the really lemony flavor you zest the lemon into the sugar.  I've done it without it and the lemon flavor wasn't really there.

Orange Creamsicle Cookies

These cookies are like the orange creamsicle or push pop that you got as a kid with orange juice, orange zest and tons of white chocolate.
Like I said above these takes like the orange push pops that you got, the cookies are almost creamy like the sherbet.
The cookies are creamy from all the white chocolate chips, over 2 cups of it.
The push pops were defiantly my favorite growing up. I would always get one when we went to the gas station in my little town.
They are so hard to find nowadays. That is why I created a batch to create a treat that I got in my childhood.
My niece and nephews ate these cookies up when I baked them off. They love anything with chocolate and/or orange.

Sweet Potato Pancake Muffins

 A southern classic in a pancake muffin hybrid. These are filled with mashed sweet potatoes, cinnamon, and ginger.
I was looking at my calendar the other day and saw that Halloween isn't that far away. Only about 100 odd days away.
Meaning it is time to start making posting that give your insides a hug. That is how I feel when I eat the typical holiday spread.

With these  pancake muffins  you will not need to add extra syrup because of sweet potato.
If you ask me what is a pancake muffin, well it is a portable version of a pancake.
I've been make them for my niece and nephews this summer because I have been watching them and they love them.

Cookies and Cream Pop Tarts

Cookies and cream cookies in a pop tart form with a dark chocolate crust, Oreo cheesecake filling 
and a cookies and cream glaze.
I was inspired to make these because my niece and nephews saw pop tarts like these at the store. Oreos are their favorite cookies.
But I didn't get them because they full of sugar, preservative and high fructose corn syrup.
No bueno in my book, so I told them that I will make them for them. These don't have that much sugar and no bad sugar.
These pop tarts taste so much better than the ones that you get at the store. They have Oreo cheesecake filling inside, the best part.
The pie crust does taste like the Oreo cookie because of the black cocoa powder I will be using.
