   There’s beginning to be a little nip of fall in the air but for now it's just a tease lol! cool chilly mornings make you want to find heat but that thought ends quickly as the sun begins to rise & you’re reaching for cool on the thermostat lol! I’ve been thinking about how good those Apple Cider Floats were that I discovered a recipe for back last year & how it’s time to dig that recipe out again!

Apple Cider Floats

1c.ginger ale

1/2c.apple cider

van. bean ice cream( you can use reg or apple pie etc)

sprinkle of nutmeg

sprinkle of cinnamon

1-2 Tbs.jarred Carmel sauce( I used smuckers hot Carmel)

fill cup 1/2 full with cider, 2-1 ratio of ginger ale , big scoop of van. ice cream,sprinkle nutmeg & cinnamon on top, add hot Carmel sauce ( I did not heat this up)

once you start stirring around with your straw it begins to take on a Carmel apple taste yum!I came across this recipe while going through my links on my blog dashboard http://www.ourbestbites.com/2011/09/apple-cider-floats/

Is it just me or does Snicker doodles say Fall? lol!




1 1/2 c.plus 2 tabsp. sugar

1 c. butter (2 sticks) softened

2 eggs

2 3/4 c. all purpose flour

2 teasp.cream of tarter

1teasp. baking soda

1/2 teasp. nutmeg

1/2 teasp.cinnamon

pecan halves

combine 1 1/2 c. sugar, butter & eggs beat on med speed, add flour, cream of tarter, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, cover with plastic wrap , chill for 1-2 hours, heat oven 375, in a small bowl combine sugar & cinnamon, roll dough into balls & roll in cinnamon sugar mixtures, press a pecan half into the center of each cookie, bake 10-12 min, let cool 1 min before removing from pan

Thanks for following me. That also allows me to find you,and follow you. I don't make snickerdoodle cookies because my neighbor did. Now that she's not next door, I'll have to do it. I have never seen ones with a nut on top, what a wonderful idea. Thanks for the recipe I'm going to give it a try.
