Pecan Pie
1 premade pie crust
2 ½ cups pecan halves
¼ cup butter, melted
1 cup corn syrup
½ cup brown sugar, packed
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Salt to taste

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup and melted butter. Stir in pecans. Transfer mixture to pie shell and bake at 350ºF for 40-45 minutes, or until top is golden. If you find that the crust is browning too quickly, carefully tent a piece of aluminum foil over the top. Make sure the foil isn’t touching the pie filling. Allow pie to cool completely before serving.

Apple Pie

1 premade pie crust
1 premade pie dough
7-8 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
½-¾ cup brown sugar, depending on sweetness of apples
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp flour
1 egg, whisked (for egg wash)
1 tbsp sugar, for sprinkling (optional)

In a large bowl, coat apple slices with brown sugar, cinnamon and flour. Mix well. Pour apple mixture into pie shell and egg wash the visible pie dough. Top with rolled out pie dough and egg wash. Sprinkle over sugar and cut 2 holes in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape. Bake at 350ºF for 45-50 minutes, or until crust is golden and apples have softened.

14 oz pumpkin purée, canned
2 eggs

    Sweet Roll Dough
  • ¼ cup water, 115 degrees
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp canola or vegetable oil (for the bowl)
  • Apple Pie Filling
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¾ brown sugar
  • ¼ sugar
  • 1½ tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • Maple Syrup Glaze
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Combine water, sugar and active dry yeast in a bowl. Let the yeast activate for five minutes.
  2. Mix the eggs, whole milk, butter, sugar, salt and vanilla extract in a bowl.
  3. Combine the yeast mixture, egg mixture and flour in a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook or mix it by hand with a wooden spoon.
  4. Mix until a soft dough forms and pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  5. Knead the dough in your mixer or by hand for five minutes.
  6. Generously oil a bowl with canola or vegetable oil. Place the dough in the bowl and cover with oil on all sides. Cover with a dish towel or plastic wrap and leave it in a warm place to rise for at least an hour or until doubled in volume.
  7. In the meantime, prepare your filling.
  8. Mix apples, white sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
  9. In a saucepan, melt 2 tbsp of butter. Add apples to pan.
  10. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the apples begin to soften. Set aside.
  11. Once your dough has risen completely, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
  12. Roll it out until it’s approximately 15” by 9”.
  13. Brush the surface with melted butter, leaving a one-inch perimeter so the ends will stick together once it’s rolled.
  14. Spread brown sugar and apple filling mixture over the surface.
  15. Roll the dough lengthwise as tightly as possible.
  16. Cut off about a half inch of dough on either side. Then, using a sharp, serrated bread knife, slice the log into 12 equal rolls.
  17. Place the rolls, cut-side down, on a well-buttered baking pan.
  18. Cover the pan with plastic wrap or a tea towel and allow the rolls to rise for at least another hour in a warm place.
  19. Once the rolls have risen a second time, brush the tops with melted butter.
  20. Bake in an oven pre-heated to 350 for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  21. In the meantime, prepare your glaze by combining butter, icing sugar, milk, vanilla and maple syrup in a small bowl.
  22. Once the rolls are finished baking, pour the glaze over the rolls while they are still warm.
  23. Serve while still warm and ooey-gooey!
