Well, since I can't sleep let me be the first one to add a dessert!!

These Cranberry Bars are sooooo good. I won a baking contest at work with this recipe - you won't be disappointed!!

Merry Berry Cranberry Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, oats and 3/4 cup of brown sugar. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of this mixture and press the remaining mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese with sweetened condensed milk until light and fluffy. Stir in the lemon juice and spread the mixture evenly over the prepared crust. Empty the can of cranberry sauce into a small bowl and stir in the cornstarch and brown sugar. Spoon over the cream cheese layer. Sprinkle the top with the reserved crust mixture. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until top is golden. Let cool completely before cutting into bars. Store covered in the refrigerator.

I just made this up the other day.... was making pumpkin tarts for my daughter's preschool class and wound up with extra stuff so I experimented:

Pumpkin Fluff Parfait

Mix 1 can pumpkin pie filling (30 oz), 1 large tub cool whip, and 1 package of cheesecake flavored instant pudding & pie filling.

Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and melted butter(I didn't measure -- probably about 2 packages of crackers, 1/2 cup sugar, a stick of butter. Stir until crumbly and press into a cookie sheet in a thin layer. Bake at 350 for about 5 minutes or so until brown. Let cool. Crumble into chunks and stir into pumpkin fluff.

Spoon into glasses (like wine glasses). Top with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle of cinnamon.

This came about because I was trying to make a graham cracker base for the filling but I realized that the filling was much too runny for a pie-type of dish, so I decided to crumble it all together instead!

Here's a favorite of Dh's. He loves Pumpkin Pie and this one has a nice twist to it with the Gingersnaps:

Pumpkin Gingersnap Pie
2 t pumpkin pie spice
1 package cook and serve vanilla pudding (3 3/4 oz)
1 1/2 cups half and half
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup coarsely crushed gingersnaps
3/4 cup chopped pecans
Graham craker pie crust (recipe below)
Gingersnap crumbs for garnish
Whipped cream for garnish
1 1/2 cups finely ground graham crackers
5 Tbl. unsalted butter, melted

In a medium saucepan, combine spice and pudding mix and cook as directed substituting half and half for liquid. Remove mixture from heat and stir in pumpkin. Cover surface of mixture with plastic wrap and let stand for 1 1/2 hrs until nearly room temp. IMPORTANT that plastic wrap actually be in contact with surface of mixture to prevent skin from forming.

Stir gently when cool. Whip cream. Fold gingersnaps and whipped cream into pudding mixture. Pour pudding mixture over nuts and chill pie for 4 hours. Sprinkle with remaining pecans and garnish with gingersnap crumbs and whipped cream.

For Pie Crust:
Stir together crust ingredients and press onto bottom and 1 in up side of an 8 inch springform pan. Fill right away or chill up to 2 hrs.

This is a great cake:

Shery Wine Cake

1 pkg. Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
1 pkg. Jell-O instant Vanilla or French Vanilla pudding
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
4 eggs
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 c. sherry wine ( I usually use Gallo sherry)

Mix the cake mix, pudding and nutmeg in a large bowl. Beat together the eggs, oil and sherry. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry and blend well by hand with a wire whisk. Beat qite well, but if it appears lumpy don't worry over it. Grease a bundt pan with Crisco NOT butter. Pour cake into pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 - 50 min. Unmold and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla

This is a little unusual, as the "frosting" is put on the cake BEFORE baking. And I know it sounds a little weird (mixing cheesecake like substance with a tradtional apple cake), but it is so, so, so GOOD.

It is one of my most requested recipes, and one of the easiest!

Gooey Apple Sheet Cake

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 24 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Cake Desserts

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
For the Cake:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup butter -- melted
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c buttermilk
2 c chopped apples -- (1/4-1/2 inch pieces)
1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon

For the Topping:
3 cups powdered sugar
8 oz. lowfat cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/4 c oats

Mix melted butter and sugar with a mixer. Add eggs and beat well. Combine the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, mixing well. Fold in the chopped apples. Spread batter into well greased (or sprayed) 13 x 9 baking pan. Mix Topping ingredients and put over cake BEFORE baking. Bake in a 350ºF oven for 40-45 minutes. You can store this on the counter or in the refrigerator. Great warm, cold, or at room temperature.

Simple Strawberry Smoothies

You will need:
A blender
Sugar (optional)

Pour in the desired amount of milk into the blender, this will be the amount of liquid that you will have, of course. For each cup of milk you add drop in about 2-5 strawberries to fit your liking. Add in some ice, and sugar (if desired) and turn on the blender.

Put into glasses, pour over some ice cream, or on top of cake and enjoy!

When I was a Pampered Chef Consultant, these were my 2 extra easy mini dessert demos I did.
Super Easy Mini Cinnamon Buns

1 tin of Pillsbury Crescents

When you open your crescents, 2 triangles are stuck together. Don't separate them, they make a rectangle with a pleat in the middle. Pinch the pleat together. Mix your cinnamon and sugar together, and put in a shaker if you have one or you could put it through a very fine sifter/strainer. Sprinkle sugar/cinn mix over the rectangle of crescents. Roll them up from the short end making a log. Slice pieces making mini cinn buns. Place them face up in a baking dish, I use a Pampered Chef Baking stone(the round one with the sides). Once you have all crescents cut, sprinkle the remaining sugar/cinn mix over the mini cinn buns. Bake at 350F for 10-15 min.
This is very quick and easy, good for Christmas morning opening gifts or just over coffee/tea Sunday morning.

Chocolate Kisses:
1 pkg Pillsbury Chocolate Chip cookie dough
24-36 Hershey Kisses
Scoop cookie dough into mini muffin pan. Unwrap kisses, placing one kiss in the center of each dollop of cookie dough. Bake according to cookie dough. So easy and everyone loves them.

Ok and one more DELISH one --
Oreo "Truffles"
8 oz. cream cheese
1 pound Oreos any flavor of your choice
1 pound milk or dark chocolate
1/2 pound white chocolate
Grind Oreos to find powder in food processor. With a mixer, blend cookie powder and cream cheese until thoroughly mixed (there should be no white traces of cream cheese). Roll into small or large balls and place on wax-lined cookie sheet. Chill 45 minutes.
Line two cookie sheets with wax paper. In double-boiler, melt milk or dark chocolate. Dip balls and coat thoroughly. With slotted spoon or fork, lift balls out of chocolate and let excess chocolate drip off. Place on wax-paper-lined cookie sheet. In separate double boiler, melt white chocolate. Using a fork, drizzle white chocolate over balls. Let cool.
Store in airtight container, in refrigerator.

Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies (DH will eat them all in one sitting if he isn't watched!)

1/2 C butter
1/4 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 T milk
1/4 C brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C all purpose flour, sifted
1/3 C mini semisweet chocolate chips
Jar of seedless raspberry preserves

Preheat oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, sugars, vanilla and salt until light and fluffy. Blend in flour and milk. Stir in chocolate chips. Shape dough into 1" balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Make a small indentation with thumb (although I use the small side of a melon baller, makes them look prettier ). Use a teaspoon to place a small amount of preserves in each indentation. Bake 10-12 minutes. Remove from sheets and cool completely on wire racks.
