Caramel Apple Dip

I just canned 127 quarts of applesauce. Yummy but tiring! I still have more apples left. So I made caramel apple dip to have as a snack. This came from Heavenly Homemakers who I absolutely love! So the credit all goes to her. This was the easiest snack ever. It lasts a long time in the fridge too.

Caramel Apple Dip

8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sucanat
1/2 t.vanilla
Cream all ingredients together and serve with apple slices. Yum!

Fresh Fig Cookies

I recently received a bunch of fresh figs. Since they aren’t grown around here I don’t think I’ve ever had the opportunity to try them.  They are very different from fig newton cookies!  I have heard they are good in smoothies but haven’t tried it yet. I did try this cookie recipe from allrecipes.com last night. Here it is with my changes. I really liked them fresh although they weren’t as good the next day, a little dry.

  • 1/2 cup sucanat
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup chopped fresh figs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  2. Cream sugar and shortening and add beaten egg.
  3. Sift dry ingredients and blend with creamed mixture. Fold in figs and nuts.
  4. Drop by spoonfuls on greased sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
