Falling Into The New Season

13 Sep

Fall is fast approaching! The season where all the leaves change colors, the weather begins to become colder and the smell of delicious treats fill the air.  I bet there are many desserts that come to mind when you think of the fall season, but instead of baking what you normally bake, how about you try something different!

To kick the new season off and to put you in the mood, lets begin with a new and fun way to bring in the fall season!

This recipe, which will be loved by any one who loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, is called Aut-yum Leaves.

In order to start this recipe, you will need to have the following:

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of water
  • prepared pie crust
  • mini chocolate chips
  • peanut butter chips
  • sugar
  • flour for work surface

Once you have gathered all of these, you can begin the process.

Instructions

  1. Heat the oven to 375°. Whisk one egg with a teaspoon of water and set it aside.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out a prepared pie crust so it’s about 1/8-inch thick. Use a large leaf-shaped cookie cutter (ours is 4 1/2-inches wide) to make as many dough leaf pairs as possible.
  3. For each pocket, spread about 4 teaspoons of mini chocolate chips and peanut butter chips on a leaf, leaving a 1/2-inch margin at the edge. Brush egg wash onto the edge, place a second leaf on top, and press the edges to seal.
  4. Brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle it generously with raw sugar. Bake the leaves on a parchment-covered cookie sheet until their edges are just beginning to brown, about 12 minutes. Let them rest on the sheet a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

Now all you need to do is enjoy!
