I would like to post a couple of Gooseberry Patch recipes today. I just love their recipes!
Spooky spiderweb Cupcakes
18-1/4 oz. pkg. chocolate or spice cake mix
1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
16-oz. container vanilla or orange frosting
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Bake in 18 to 24 paper-lined muffin cups. Cool and set aside. Place chocolate chips in a small plastic zipping bag; microwave on high setting for 30 seconds to one minute, until melted. Snip off one corner of bag; squeeze chocolate onto a wax paper-lined baking sheet to form 3 concentric circles. Immediately draw a toothpick through circles to form a spiderweb design. Repeat with remaining chocolate; chill until set. Frost cupcakes; press webs gently into frosting. Makes 18 to 24 cupcakes.
Maple-Spice Pecan Pie
2 9-inch pie crusts
3 eggs
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. maple syrup
3 T. butter, melted
1 T. lemon juice
1 t. vanilla extract
3/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
1-1/2 c. chopped pecans
Place each pie crust in a pie plate; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk eggs and brown sugar. Add remaining ingredients except pecans; whisk to blend. Add pecans and pour into pie crusts. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Lower to 350 degrees and bake an additional 35 minutes , until golden. Makes 2 pies.
Hope you enjoy these recipes! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
