Beautiful cheese cake!

Here are the Poi Sweetbread Rolls. No, they are not purple. The purple comes from food coloring. I don't bother.

I followed the Hershey's recipe and added Trader Joe's Mini Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter cups to each square. Now, I COULD have gilded that lily with a scoop of ice cream, but we ran out ...

Ooo, TJ's mini PB cups? *moan* Good think I have to return an item to them soon. In a dozen years we finally had a second item we did not like. So glad I can take it back and get store credit, only to turn around and spend it and so much more. lol!

@Cooking Goddess, we haven't anything at TJ's that we don't care for yet, though we've only shopping there for a few years now...
I should have said Hershey's brownie recipe ...

All the talk recently about Snickerdoodles inspired me, this non-baker, to make some yesterday for the first time in many years. They are sooooooo good, just the way I remember them. Such a simple pleasure, milk and Snickerdoodles.

They are delicious! SO made some using a Betty Crocker recipe I got online. While they taste great, they were thin and cake-like rather than thin and crispy as expected.

Actually plan on having some tonight with a glass of cold milk.

It was a cool, late September day - except it IS mid-August! I actually got into a baking mood. I had intended to make scones yesterday during the baseball game, but a looong rain delay and eventual cancellation (played only 3 innings) made me postpone until today. My accomplishments today were two, 8-count pans of scones, and a 12x7 dish of something called Blueberry Grunt. Meh. I can pitch that recipe.
