Finished product:
Puff Pastry Apple Tart. I love to bake with puff pastry but I really don't want to attempt to make it from scratch. I've seen it done before and it's a lot of work! It's much easier to buy It already made in a package.
β€’

1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed but still cold
2-3 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Combine the sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl, set aside
Unfold the puff pastry and place on a floured surface. Using a rolling pin, go over the puff pastry lightly to remove any indentations.
Toss the apples in the sugar/ cinnamon mixture. Brush the dough with the melted butter.
Place the apples on the puff pastry, leaving about a 1 inch border around the edges.
Bake for 15-18 minutes in a preheated 415 degree oven.
Let cool before slicing.

The weather has been beautiful and dry so I'm taking advantage of that and opening the oven to make these Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. Very simple. I just took a basic Oatmeal Cookie Recipe and added some chopped Cranberries and some orange zest just because I thought orange goes well with Cranberries. β€’
3/4 cup Butter Flavor Crisco
1 1/4 cups firmly packed Brown Sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups quick oats, uncooked
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups Cranberries, fresh or frozen, chopped
Zest of 1 orange, if desired β€’
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Combine Butter Flavor Crisco, brown sugar, egg, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric mixer until well blended. Combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix into creamed mixture at low speed just until blended. Fold in chopped cranberries and orange zest. Drop by rounded tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to cool completely on a wire rack.πŸ”΄πŸŒΏπŸŠπŸŒΏπŸ”΄πŸŒΏπŸŠπŸŒΏπŸ”΄πŸŒΏπŸŠπŸŒΏπŸ”΄πŸŒΏπŸŠπŸŒΏπŸ”΄πŸŒΏπŸŠπŸŒΏπŸ”΄πŸŒΏπŸŠ#foodphotographer #foodphotography #baking #foodpics #foodpic #foodphoto #foodphotos #foodporn #dessertporn #feedfeed #thebakefeed #huffposttaste #f52grams #bonappetit #bonappetitmag #beautifulfood #beautifulcuisines #instafood #goodeats #homebaking #dessert #cookies #oatmealcookies #foodstyling #foodstylist #overheadshot #countrycooking

Spent the morning making this from scratch Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Frosting. It was going to be reaching 90 degrees today so I needed to get this cake in the oven as soon as possible! I found a great Vanilla Cake recipe that is light and airy. The recipe called for all-purpose flour but I've learned from experience that cake flour yields a lighter texture.
β€’
3 cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup ( 2 sticks) butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour 2 9 inch cake pans. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. With an electric mixer,beat the butter and sugar together on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the oil, eggs and vanilla and continue mixing until smooth.
On low speed, add a 1/3 of the flour mixture followed by half the milk, beating after each addition.
Repeat with the flour mixture and milk, ending with the flour mixture. Mix on medium speed for 30 seconds. Divide the batter equally among the 2 cake pans. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 5 minutes then invert on a wire rack to cool completely.πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚πŸ“πŸŽ‚#foodphotography #foodphotographer #baking #foodpic #foodpics #foodphoto #foodphotos #foodporn #dessertporn #feedfeed #thebakefeed #huffposttaste #f52grams #bonappetit #bonappetitmag #beautifulfood #beautifulcuisines #instafood #goodeats #strawberries #cake #cakedecorating #cakes

I know it's a little early for Fourth Of July but I wanted to post this recipe in case someone was looking for a simple, no bake dessert for the Fourth Of July. This recipe is from Martha Stewart. Can I just say that I'm proud to be an American. I love this holiday because I love this great country! Happy Fourth Of July!

Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies.
This recipe calls for Espresso Powder but I substituted Instant Coffee Granules because that's what I had on hand. Also, this recipe calls for butter but I like to use Butter Flavor Shortening (Crisco) just because I like the way the texture of the cookies are with Shortening. One more thing, the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of Espresso Powder (or Instant Coffee). If you like more of a subtle Coffee flavor, I suggest using a little less than the 1/4 cup.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of softened butter ( or Butter Flavor Crisco)
1 1/2 cups Granulated Sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup Espresso Powder ( or Instant Coffee Granules)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick baking mat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light.
Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by cocoa powder, Espresso Powder and vanilla.
Mix ingredients for 1-2 minutes or until completely combined.
With the mixer on low speed, gradually blend in the flour mixture until fully incorporated.
Stir in Chocolate Chips.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls and bake on lined baking sheets for
9-11 minutes until cookies are set but still soft.
Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack.πŸ«β˜•οΈπŸͺπŸ«β˜•οΈπŸͺπŸ«β˜•οΈπŸͺπŸ«β˜•οΈπŸͺπŸ«β˜•οΈπŸͺπŸ«β˜•οΈπŸͺ#chocolate #foodphotographer #foodphotography #baking #foodpic #foodpics #foodphoto #foodphotos #foodporn #dessertporn #feedfeed #thebakefeed #huffposttaste #f52grams #bonappetitmag #bonappetit #beautifulfood #beautifulcuisines #instafood #dessert #chocolatechip #darkfoodphoto #cookies #goodeats #overheadshot #coffee
