Pumpkin Spice Granola

If you’ve seen our vast Halloween collection, you’ll know that we are big fans of fall! We love the crisp air, the changing leaves, and of course, everything pumpkin flavored. That’s why we’ve put together a perfect recipe for those chilly fall mornings that doubles as an afternoon snack to keep your pumpkin spice cravings in check.

We know we’re not alone when we say we love baking when the temperature starts to drop. We’ve been reaching for our Square, Rectangular, and Loaf Bakers for almost every meal over the past few weeks, and there’s no sign of stopping! There’s just something about turning the oven on and having those fall spices permeating our homes that make us swoon.

This pumpkin spice granola is a delicious way to get that fall feeling going. We like to enjoy this sweet and spicy treat with steamed milk in the morning, or when you get that hangry feeling in the afternoons. We’ve kept the processed sugar out too, so there’s no midmorning crash (although we like to add a little honey on top!) Let us know if you tried this recipe on our Facebook page, and share your photos with us on Instagram. Happy fall, y’all!

Holiday Butters

Holiday Butters This season, we’ve put together four compound butters, all boasting festive flavors that are perfectly paired with holiday fare. From savory roasted garlic and fresh herbs to creamy pumpkin and bright cranberry, each flavor is just as at home on freshly carved turkey as it is on a plush dinner roll.

Crescent Roll

And don’t forget about leftovers!  Every leftover turkey sandwich deserves to be slathered with cranberry butter.  In fact, these butters can be used throughout the day.  Toast is made merrier topped with pumpkin spice butter and vegetables shine with rich garlic butter.

These butter recipes are tailor made to fit in our infinitely useful 8 ounce Ramekins.  If you’re trying to get extra fancy though, go for our Two Piece Dip Set, which includes a matching butter spreader.

Herbed Butter

HERBED BUTTER
Mix 1 tablespoon of minced parsley, 1-1/2 teaspoons of minced sage, 1 teaspoon of minced rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon of minced thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt into 1 cup of softened butter.

Cranberry ButterCRANBERRY BUTTER
Place 4 ounces of fresh or frozen cranberries, 2 tablespoons of water, six strips of orange peel, 6 tablespoons of sugar, and ¼ teaspoon each of cardamom and nutmeg in a saucepot. Simmer over low heat until the berries soften, for about 4 minutes after it begins to simmer.  Remove from heat and extract orange peel.  Allow to cool to room temperature before mixing into one cup of softened butter.

Pumpkin Butter

PUMPKIN SPICE BUTTER
Mix 3 tablespoons of canned pumpkin, ¼ teaspoon each of nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of sugar into 1 cup of softened butter.

Garlic Butter

ROASTED GARLIC BUTTER
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Slice the tops off of two heads of garlic and drizzle with a bit of olive oil then sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place in the center of a sheet of aluminum foil and bring the sides up to form a pouch.  Put the pouch in the oven and roast for about 45 minutes, until garlic is softened. Allow to cool slightly and then squeeze out the garlic cloves.  Allow the garlic to cool completely before chopping and mixing into one cup of softened butter.
