A Twist on a Favorite

Who doesn’t love apple pie in the morning?

These apple cinnamon rolls taste just like fresh apple pie, filled with cinnamon-sugared apples, fragrant and perfect for serving with a steaming cup of coffee

Ingredients

DOUGH This recipe is made with homemade dough and while it takes a bit of time, it’s not difficult to make.

FILLING We make homemade apple pie filling in minutes, this gives the best flavor. Canned apple pie filling can be used in a pinch.

SUGAR & SPICE Cinnamon sugar and the glaze are just as important as the apples and the dough, so don’t skimp on the seasonings! If you have it, swap out some of the cinnamon for apple pie spice.

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Prepare the apple filling. If using canned, chop the apples smaller.
  2. Prepare the dough per recipe below and let rise for 1 hour.
  3. After rising, roll into a rectangle, brush with butter, & sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top.
  4. Spread apple filling over top, roll the dough into a log.

To Serve

  • Let the rolls cool a few minutes in the pan.
  • While cooling, make the glaze in a small zippered bag. Snip off one end and drizzle the glaze over the tops. Serve warm.

How to Store Apple Cinnamon Rolls

  • Keep apple cinnamon rolls in an airtight container at room temperature and they’ll be good for about 3 days.
  • Baked rolls can be frozen as long as they are wrapped tightly and placed in a zippered bag with the date labeled on the outside. Toss one into a backpack or briefcase and they’ll be thawed in a couple of hours!
  • Freeze unbaked rolls in the baking dish and wrap them with plastic with the date written on the outside. They’ll keep in the freezer for about 2 months. Let them thaw overnight and bake in the morning!

Ingredients

Glaze

  • cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tablespoon water
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla

Dough

  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 package active dry yeast or 2 ¼ teaspoon
  • cup granulated sugar plus 1 teaspoon
  • ¾ cup milk
  • cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 4 to 4 ½ cups all purpose flour divided

Instructions

  • Grease a 9×13″ pan and set aside. Chop the apples in the filling and set aside.

Dough

  • Combine water, yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in a small bowl. Let sit 10 minutes or until foamy.
  • Combine milk, butter, remaining sugar, and salt in a saucepan and heat to 120-130°F. Place 2 cups flour in a stand mixer. Add eggs, milk mixture and yeast mixture. Mix until combined.
  • Using a dough hook, add remaining flour, ½ cup at a time to form a soft dough that pulls away from the side of the bowl. You may not use all of the flour.
  • Remove dough from the bowl and knead on a lightly floured surface until dough is smooth and elastic (approx. 8 mins).
  • Place in a greased bowl in a warm spot and cover with a towel for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  • On a floured surface, roll out bread dough into an 18″x9″ rectangle.

Assembly

  • Cover the dough with a thin layer of butter. In a small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle it over the rolled dough. Top with apple filling.
  • Roll the dough into a log (it should be 18″ long). Slice into 12 pieces. Place the rolls in the pan and cover with parchment paper and a dishtowel. Place in a warm area to rise (about 60 minutes).
  • Once risen, preheat oven to 375°F. Bake 22-27 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly.
  • In a small zippered bag, mix the glaze ingredients together. Snip off the corner and drizzle over top.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

Ensure the filling is not chilled from the fridge or the rolls won’t rise properly. 

These rolls are best served warm from the oven.

You can use thawed bread dough in place of homemade dough. It will need longer to rise. If using thawed bread dough, the centers will hollow slightly as these cool.

Air Fryer Onion Rings

Perfectly crispy air fryer onion rings are way better than the frozen variety (and easy to make)!

Satisfy your craving and skip the takeout (and the extra fat). Onion rings aren’t difficult and taste amazing.

Air Fryer Onion Rings

Finally, we can enjoy crispy, crunchy onion rings without a vat of oil!

We love air fryer recipes because they come out so crispy and are so easy to make! The air fryer needs less oil, creates fewer fat calories, and plus it takes less time. What’s not to love?

Ingredients

ONIONS We like large, sweet onions like Vidalias, but if Walla Wallas are available, those are the best!

FLOUR This simple dredge adds seasoning but most of all helps the coating stick to the onions.

BUTTERMILK & EGG This helps the crumbs stick. If you don’t have buttermilk, cream or milk will work.

PANKO Panko bread crumbs have more crunch for a crispy coating. If you only have regular bread crumbs, those work too.

How to Make Air Fryer Onion Rings

Make a double batch of these beauties, because you can be sure that they will disappear in no time!

  1. Cut onions into ½ inch slices and separate the rings.
  2. Combine flour, seasoned salt, & cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Whisk eggs in another bowl until they are frothy. Stir breadcrumbs, oil, & cornmeal in another bowl.
  4. Dip each ring into eggs, flour, eggs, breadcrumbs, then place in the preheated air fryer.

  1. Fry rings in a single layer until golden brown & crispy on the outside, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Remove onion rings from the air fryer & sprinkle with seasoned salt. Serve immediately.

Can you Freeze Onion Rings?

Freeze cooked and cooled onion rings in a zippered bag with the date labeled on the outside. They’ll keep fresh for up to 8 weeks in the freezer.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

How can oatmeal get any better? Adding chocolate chips of course! These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect mix between Oatmeal Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookies, so chewy and sweet!

oatmeal chocolate chip cookies on cutting board

To know my husband is to know that Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are his very favorite. (The baked cookies…and the cookie dough.) The chewy oats paired with the soft baked cookie and melty chocolate chips is so dreamy! There is absolutely a time and place for the original chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip are a great variation! If you’ve never had one, get ready to live!

Main Ingredients Needed

Lot’s of common ingredients in this ingredients list, which means you could probably make these amazing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies today! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Salted Butter – I use and prefer salted butter for all my baking. However, if you prefer unsalted butter, increase the salt to 1 teaspoon.
  • Brown Sugar – to sweeten with that slight molasses taste.
  • Granulated Sugar – to sweeten.
  • Eggs – this helps add structure to the cookies.
  • Vanilla – delicious flavor!
  • Rolled Oats – it wouldn’t be an oatmeal cookie without oats! I recommend using old fashioned rolled oats.
  • All-Purpose Flour – this fills out the cookies.
  • Baking Soda + Powder – the leavening for the dough.
  • Salt – to balance out all the flavors.
  • Chocolate Chips – I used semi-sweet regular sized chocolate chip cookies but I also love using mini chocolate chips (for evenly distributed chocolate morsels).

How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I use a tried and true, traditional method for making cookies! For full details on how to make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, see the recipe card down below 🙂

Step 1: Preheat Oven and Prep Pans

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line light-colored baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside.

Cream butter together with brown sugar and granulated sugar.

Add eggs and vanilla to the bowl. Whip until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl and stir again briefly to ensure it’s evenly mixed.

Slowly incorporate dry ingredients to create cookie dough. Fold in chocolate chips by hand.

Step 3: Bake and Cool

Scoop onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets using a 3 tablespoon scoop and bake until the edges are lightly browned and the centers are puffed but still slightly soft-looking.

Cool for a couple of minutes on baking sheets before transferring to cooling racks. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Want Smaller Cookies?

I used a large cookie scoop to create larger cookies, but feel free to use a 1 tablespoon scoop for smaller cookies. Bake 7-8 minutes at 325 degrees F.

How I Keep My Cookies Soft

The best method for storing and keeping cookies soft is to store in an airtight container with a piece of bread. I find that plain white sandwich bread works best for this and a gallon sized Ziploc bag. That way, your Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies can stay soft for days!

Seriously make these babies today, and if not today, sometime soon!

Air Frying Tips

  • Don’t cut the eggplant too thin, you want it to have texture.
  • Salting the eggplant draws out moisture and seasons it!
  • Even though some slices will be larger due to the natural shape of the eggplant, keep all of the slices the same thickness so they fry evenly.

Zucchini Muffins – Loaded with Fresh Zucchini!

These zucchini muffins come out moist and flavorful every time!

We love this recipe because it’s easy and of course the zucchini makes them extra moist.

close up of two Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

Ingredients

We love these zucchini muffins just the way they are— but switching out ingredients makes these muffins super versatile!

DRY INGREDIENTS This recipe calls for all purpose flour and other ingredients typical in muffin recipes. Half of the all purpose flour can be substituted for whole wheat flour if desired.

VEGGIES Similar to a quick bread, zucchini muffins can be switched up with shredded carrots instead of zucchini. Or use shredded pumpkin and add some cinnamon!

OTHER ADDITIONS Why not add some frozen blueberries? Zucchini muffins are a great low-sugar way to get healthy nutrition into hungry bellies. We are convinced this is one of our best recipes ever!

process of adding ingredients to bowl to make Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins

How to Make Zucchini Muffins

It’s not hard to whip up a batch of homemade zucchini muffins!

  1. Prepare muffin tins. Whisk all the dry ingredients together (per recipe below).
  2. Combine egg, oil, and vanilla, and zucchini. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Don’t over mix.
  3. Pour into prepared muffin liners or tins. Bake until a pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Zucchini Chocolate Chip Muffins in the muffin tin

How Long to Bake Muffins

  • For mini-muffins: Bake @ 350°F for 14 to 16 minutes.
  • For regular-sized muffins: Bake @ 350°F for 22 to 24 minutes.
  • For Texas-sized muffins: Bake @ 350°F for 24 to 27 minutes.

Baking with Zucchini

Baking with zucchini can be simple— we recommend squeezing out the excess moisture from grated zucchini by pressing it down in the colander or pressing it between layers of clean paper towels.

Storing Zucchini Muffins

  • Zucchini muffins are best when they are kept at room temperature and in a closed container or a zippered bag. Keep a slice of bread with them so it absorbs excess moisture.
  • Zucchini muffins freeze perfectly, so wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then place them in a zippered bag. Write the date on the outside of the bag and they will last about 8 weeks in the freezer!

Biscuits Made Easy

We love Homemade Biscuits served with soups and stews, topped with jam and of course served with sausage gravy.

A drop biscuit is the perfect quick and easy solution when dinner is on the go! Skip the box mix, these are just as easy!

Light, fluffy biscuits are just six ingredients away!

ingredients to make Easy Drop Biscuits

Ingredients

These easy drop biscuits are an everyday recipe that can be prepared for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

  • Butter Ensure the butter is cold, this creates little pockets that add lift and texture (and of course flavor).
  • Milk Again, cold is best. This adds moisture, texture and helps with browning.
  • Flour These biscuits use all-purpose flour, you can substitute half with whole wheat flour if preferred.
  • Leavening: Baking soda, baking powder, and a little salt to produce airy biscuits with the perfect texture every time!

Variations

This recipe is easily up-leveled by switching out the milk for buttermilk or mixing cheddar cheese or herbs into the dough.

Drop biscuits are also perfect for dumplings which are basically uncooked drop biscuits that are added to the top of chili, or a savory soup or stew!

How to Make Drop Biscuits

These 6-ingredient biscuits give a new meaning to the words ‘quick and easy’!

  1. Whisk together dry ingredients.  Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender or two knives until it resembles small peas.
  2. Add milk a little at a time until the dough is thick but able to be scooped and dropped with a spoon.
  3. Drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet and bake per recipe below or until the biscuits are lightly browned.

close up of cooked Easy Drop Biscuits

How to Store Leftover Biscuits

  • Drop biscuits keep best in a covered container or a zippered bag at room temperature for about 3 days.
  • Uncooked biscuits will keep in the freezer for about 3 months as long as they are in a zippered bag—don’t forget to write the date on the outside! Frozen biscuit dough can be baked for about 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Cooked biscuits can be frozen in a zippered bag for up to 2 months. Let them thaw at room temperature before serving.
