Pumpkin Cheese Spice Bread Recipe
makes 3 mini loafs

For the Cheese Batter:
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
¼ c powdered sugar
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
For the Pumpkin Spice Batter:
¾ c brown sugar, lightly packed
2 large eggs
¾ c pure pumpkin puree (homemade or canned is fine; not pumpkin pie filling)
2 tbsp coconut or canola oil
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1¼ c all-purpose flour
1¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp ground cloves
Butter, to grease the pans

Preheat oven to 350F; lightly grease 3 mini loaf pans with butter.

For the cheese batter, use a handheld electric mixer to beat together all ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy.

For the pumpkin spice batter, whisk together the brown sugar and eggs in a medium bowl until light and fluffy, then stir in the pumpkin, canola oil, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk or sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet, being careful not to over-mix.
Divide the pumpkin batter between the 3 loaf pans, then pour the cheese batter on top. Bake until golden around the edges, about 35 to 40 min, or until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean or with just a couple crumbs.Cool 10 min in the pans, then remove from the pans and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

French Onion Pie Stew Recipe

1/4 cup butter
2 lg yellow onions, sliced
1 pkg mushrooms
1 Tbsp veg or beef bouillon, such as Better Than Bouillon
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp sugar
2 - 2 1/2 lbs chuck roast
Salt and pepper, to taste

For pie crust crackers:
2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp salt
dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
2 Tbsp butter
6 oz gruyere or swiss cheese, shredded
1 c ice water

Coat slow cooker with butter. Layer sliced onions and mushrooms and top with remaining butter, bouillon, pepper, Worcestershire, and sugar. Add meat, salt and pepper the top of the meat, then cover. Cook on low for 8-12 hrs, or until meat becomes fork tender and onions are completely caramelized and translucent. (For me, it took 9 hrs). Once meat is fork tender, carefully transfer it to a rimmed cutting board or surface and shred it with a fork and transfer it back to the slow cooker. Stir and salt and pepper to taste. Change slow cooker setting to "warm" until ready to serve.
About 2 hrs before soup is ready, make the cheese pie crust crackers. In a food processor, pulse flour and salt. Pulse in butter and shredded gruyere. Pulse in ice water 1 Tbsp at a time, until dough appears shaggy. (For me, it took 10 Tbsp.) Use a rubber spatula to help transfer the dough to a flat, floured surface. Knead a few times until dough comes together. Divide dough into two parts using a knife or dough cutter. Form two flat disks. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 20-30 minutes.
After refrigeration, preheat oven to 375°. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Prick the dough with a fork to prevent it from bubbling up as it bakes. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-25 min, or until dough turns golden brown. Allow to cool before breaking up into crackers.
Serve soup out of slow cooker with crackers on the side.
This is wonderful!!!

Hi Nancy, furkids, and Landers,
In the October 15th newsletter, Sherry in Indiana sent in a recipe for Chewy Brownies. The ingredients listed butter but I wanted to make sure it was 1/2 cup and not two cups. Also, 2 cups of chocolate chips, semisweet, are listed, but nothing in the text says what to do with them. Are they mixed in or put on top or???. Thanks for clarification.

Hi Nancy and 'Landers:
Seeing Lisa's refrigerator pickles reminded me of the sweet sour pickles I've made for years and haven't made them for a long time due to hubby's diet and diabetes but I think I'll
make them again and hide them! I hope you like them as much as we do.

Sweet Sour Pickles Recipe

1 qt. Kosher dill pickles
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vinegar

Combine sugar, water and vinegar in saucepan, bring to a boil and boil 2 min. Let cool. Drain liquid from pickles and discard. Slice pickles into chunks and put back in the jar. Pour brine over pickles and seal. Turn jar upside down overnite. Then refrigerate the next day. These turn out xtra crispy and good.
