Pumpkin Patch Oreo Pudding Cups

Pumpkin Patch Oreo Pudding Cups

pumpkin patch
Ingredients:
8 Chocolate pudding cups
1 package of Oreos
1 package of mini pumpkin candies
Directions:
First split 8 Oreos into halves, leaving one side with all the cream filling. Set the cream filling ones aside. Take the remaining sides of the Oreos and crush them to make Oreo crumbs.
Open the pudding cups and sprinkle Oreo crumbs over the pudding. This layer can be as thin or thick as you like.
Then take the Oreo sides you set aside. Partially wedge each Oreo side lengthwise into the back of a pudding cup so that it looks like a full moon.
Finally, place two or three mini pumpkin candies into each pudding cup on top of the Oreo crumbs.
Take a picture of your edible pumpkin patch and enjoy with friends and family!

Early Fall Apple Pie

Early Fall Apple Pie

I live in a small apartment and don’t always have all the space, or equipment, or ingredients (or really the time) to make crust, so let me tell you a secret: I love to cheat. It turns out that Pillsbury unroll-fill refrigerated pie crust is delicious. I used their crust and recipe to make this pie that is absolutely perfect for a fall treat.
