Well, the calendar flipped to my favorite month of the year- October! Not only do I love this month for all the gorgeous colors but also because it’s my birthday month! Woo-hoo! And not just any day in October, but THE DATE in October…the day all the little ghouls & goblins come knocking on the door for treats-Halloween! It’s the best day to have a birthday- you get to dress up, hand out candy and eat cake! I like to have a few snacks to munch on while passing out chocolate, so I am always looking for new baking ideas.
A popular ingredient this time of year is of course pumpkin, however, I wanted to make something that also had another flavor I hold near and dear and that is peanut butter. How could I put these two things together? Well, I decided to head to my local Price Chopper and check out their #BakingAdvantEdge section to get my creative juices going. I like the new Market Bistro in Latham, NY because it has a lot of options and it’s always well stocked.
Not only was I looking for my new Halloween snack inspiration, I was also shopping for our annual Oktoberfest party! We decided the year after we moved into our house we needed a gathering to bring all the neighbors together so we could get to know them better. After 14 years, it is still going strong, both party and close friendships! When I passed this display with fall corn, gourds, beer and Oktoberfest pretzels, I had to grab a box! Don’t they look awesome?
I decided to push the envelope a bit and get creative. I had a coupon for Pillsbury Crescent Rolls and when I passed the baking aisle, I caught a glimpse of Jif Peanut Butter. Hmmm…maybe if I added a little bit of pumpkin pie spice, this could be worth a test kitchen recipe! I wasn’t really sure how this would come out, but I was willing to take one for the team.
I grabbed 2 Tablespoons of Jif peanut butter
and 1/2 tsp. of Pumpkin Pie Spice mix (I started with 1/4 tsp. , but it wasn’t enough)
Then mixed them together in a small bowl.
I opened the crescent rolls and placed them on a parchment paper lined tray.
Using the back of my spoon, I spread about 1 tsp. of the peanut butter spice mixture onto the triangles, rolled them up and baked according to the package directions.
Once out of the oven, I barely let them cool- I wanted to try them right away! And, wow- they came out so good! I was pleasantly surprised and I know this will now be one of my new fall favorites to enjoy with a glass of milk or a nice hot cup of tea. If you are looking for a recipe that is not quite pumpkin and not quite peanut butter, this is it.
