BFS Assignment #105 {M'm M'm Good}

Intro: M’m M’m Good (Campbell’s Soup)
The fall is such a wonderful time of year.  The beautiful foliage and cool, crisp morning air is such a wonderful change from the hot summer.  I also love the M’m M’m good smell of fall cooking and baking.  The wonderful fall veggies, fruits and Thanksgiving foods.

Assignment:  Post your favorite fall recipe/recipes to share.  I love trying new recipes, do you?  It can be baking, main dishes, veggies, dessert or anything else you can think of.  There are no limits.  Mmmmmm..I can’t wait to take a look at some of those recipes.


Let me preface my assignment by saying that I am a reluctant cook.  LOL  I really don't care to do much cooking, and often I do it only out of necessity.  But I do like baking, in most cases.  This weekend I did bake four pumpkin pies (just used the recipe on the can of pumpkin - its dummy proof! LOL) and yesterday I made a pumpkin roll for the first time and it turned out great!  Our fall favorites are things like chili, roast turkey, chicken potpie, pumpkin pie, and cranberry cobbler.  We have a turkey fryer and enjoy deep-fried turkey even in the winter, when we're provided with a day that is not too windy or pouring down rain.  I decided to share my cranberry cobbler recipe, because its so easy and is meant to make use of leftover cranberry sauce.

Cranberry Cobbler

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup butter or margarine

1/4 tsp baking soda

Leftover whole berry cranberry sauce - about 14 oz.  (you can add in some jellied cranberry if you have that left over too)

Mix together all ingredients except cranberry sauce until crumbly.  Pack a little more than half into a greased 9x9 pan.  Spread the cranberry sauce on top, then cover with remaining crumb mixture.  Press it down a little with your hand.  Bake at 350*F for about 40 minutes until its golden brown.  This is best served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream.  (although we've been known to eat it warm with cream as a breakfast!  It is oatmeal, after all! LOL)

"...then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil."  ~ Deuteronomy 11:14

I love cranberries! I never thought about using them in a cobbler though, I'll have to try that. How did you like the pumpkin roll? I have made those for years and years, my family loves getting them...Thank you for sharing with us.
