Treat Tuesday: Apple Pie Cookies

For me, fall is seriously all about Pumpkin Spice!  BUT...I may have just found a new obsession that rivals my Pumpkin Spice.  These delicious Apple Pie Cookies are to die for.  My hubby, who isn't even a fan of fruit anything, likes these cookies!  The best part is using apples you've gone to an orchard and picked yourself!  There's something so satisfying about using fresh produce that you've acquired on your own---it makes me feel even more bad-A about myself when I do that!  Haha!

Take a look at these beauties:


I honestly have no idea what kind of apples I used.  One of my best friends' parents have a couple apple trees on their farm and I took some apples home when we went to visit.  These apples were perfect to use, though, and I felt like a version of the Pioneer Woman when I was making these cookies!  I even made enough filling to freeze some for later---I can use that filling for more cookies or maybe I'll make a real pie with it.  Either way, the filling is wonderful.

When the cookies were still warm from the oven, they were literally to die for.  I loved the tartness and the sweetness of the apple pie filling and by cooking them on the stove top, the apples kept just a hint of their crispness, creating a satisfying texture with the soft, chewy cookie cup.  Plus, they make your home smell amazing.

As for the cookies---here's the most important part---beat the heck out of that butter and sugar!  When you think you've got it fluffy enough, beat it some more!  It's a secret that my momma taught me and that I'll teach my daughter.  It really does make just a bit of difference; almost giving the cookies a bit of extra airiness to them, making them a bit softer than they would normally be.  Now, there is a fine line---you can beat the butter and sugar too much---so you really need to pay attention to the color.  When it starts to finally turn color to just a hint of paleness; you're ready to go!

These cookies would be perfect with a scoop of homemade vanilla bean ice cream or maybe I should whip up some vanilla bean whipped cream for the top? 

I also created a free printable for you to print off the recipe for your recipe book (or you can click on the image below and print off the photo)!  I guarantee you'll want to make these!  They will probably be your new favorite fall flavor, too!



If you make them---take a pic and post it and let me know what you think!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

September Challenge: Drink More Water!

Do you drink lots of water?  I don't!  I've found that I am hard-pressed to get even 8 ounces of water in my body during the day and that is no bueno!   I was really beginning to see the signs of dehydration---including a lack of energy and irritability!  (Yes, that's a real thing!  Check out the symptoms of dehydration here ). So, I decided to do something about it.  I decided to start drinking more water.  And I read more about water. It's no secret that water helps with your overall health; like aiding in weight-management , energize muscles , balance the body's natural fluids and improve kidney function .  But, I was shocked at how much water can help with your skin!  And for someone who is kind of fanatic about their own skin (yes, I am!) I wanted to know more! Did you know that your skin is 64% water?  So, it's safe to say that your skin health is directly correlated with your water consumption.  In fact, dermatologists and doctors have seen that wa

Tip Tuesday: The Eyes Have It!

Did you know that when it comes to creating a stunning look with cosmetics, your eye shape  has quite a lot to do with that?  It's true!  Take myself, for example.  I am one of the blessed individuals with a Monolid  eye shape (thanks, genetics) so many of the gorgeous shimmery "peekaboo" looks for eyes with visible creases (which is all the rest of you folks!) I cannot easily achieve.  *Sigh*. And just like clothing, one size and one style does not  fit all!  (I could never wear a romper, my short little torso just can't handle that!)  So, today's Tip Tuesday is all about learning how to identify your eye shape and some cosmetic tips for applying your make-up to bring out the best  for your eyes! Let's get started with a couple tips to check out your eyes: Use a good mirror---a handheld is good, a stand-up is better, and a stand-up magnifying mirror is best! Lights, please!  Artificial lighting is fine, provided you have a clear view of your eye, ther
