CARAMEL APPLE CAKE serves 8-10 • 1 hour prep • 2 hours total, plus time to cool cake • $ CAKE 1/2 cup (1 stick) + 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted 2 cups + 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour, plus more for pans 2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. baking powder 2 tsp. ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp. ground ginger 1 tsp. salt 2 cups packed dark-brown sugar 2 large eggs 3 baking apples (such as Granny Smith or MacIntosh), peeled, coarsely grated

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees; use 2 tbsp. melted butter and 2 tbsp. flour to coat three, 8-inch-round cake pans. 2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and salt. 3. In another large bowl, combine butter, sugar and eggs, and fold in grated apples. 4. in three batches, add dry flour mixture to wet mixture until just combined. 5. Divide batter into prepared pans and bake 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cakes comes out clean. Cool the cakes in pans for 30 minutes; remove and place onto a wire rack to cool completely.

BUTTERCREAM 4 large egg whites 1 cup packed dark-brown sugar 1/4 tsp. salt 1½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into pieces

1. Whisk egg whites, sugar and salt in a heat-proof bowl, set over simmering water; the bottom of the bowl should not touch the water. Whisk mixture until sugar has completely dissolved. 2. Use an electric mixer or add to the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk at medium speed for about 15 minutes. The mixture will cool completely and be light and fluffy. 3. Reduce to low speed and add butter slowly until fully incorporated.

1. Add water and sugar to a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved. 2. Add lemon juice, and increase heat to medium-high. Boil until sugar turns medium-brown, about 5 minutes. On occasion, gently swirl the liquid to disperse the caramel color. Watch closely towards the end, the caramel can burn quickly. 3. Remove from heat; gradually add cream. Mixture will violently bubble at first contact with the cream; stand back to prevent injury. Use a whisk to combine the cream into the caramel.

BEER-BATTERED APPLES serves 4 • 25 minutes • $ 4 to 5 cups vegetable oil, or other high smoke-point oil, such as canola oil or peanut oil 1 egg white 1 cup dark white beer, slightly flat 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. cinnamon 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper 3 Granny Smith or other baking apples, peeled and cored coarse sea salt

1. Pour oil into a large saucepan to depth of 2 inches. Heat oil over medium heat until it reaches 375 degrees. 2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg white until frothy, and gently stir in beer, flour, salt, cinnamon and cayenne pepper until smooth. 3. Slice apples into 1/4-inch rings; pat dry. 4. Add slices into batter. Remove one by one, allowing any excess batter to drip off, and carefully submerge in hot oil. Fry for about 1 minute on each side until golden. Remove fried apples from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to paper towels. Immediately sprinkle each slice with a pinch of coarse salt. Work in batches. Tip: Before pouring the oil into a pan, make sure it is completely dry. Any water droplets in the pan will cause the oil to splatter violently once heated. Tip: When working with hot oil, pay close attention to it. Keep kids out of the kitchen, and have the pan’s lid close by. CLICK FOR RECIPE DOWNLOAD

POTATO AND APPLE EMPANADAS serves 4 • 1 hour, 20 minutes • $ 2 to 3 waxy red or white potatoes (about 1/4 pound), peeled, 1/2-inch dice 1 apple, peeled and 1/2–inch dice 1 onion, 1/2–inch dice 2 garlic cloves, minced 1/2 tsp. ground cumin 1 tsp. dried oregano 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes 1/4 cup chicken broth salt to taste 2 store-bought uncooked piecrusts 1 large egg beaten with 1 tbsp. water for egg wash butter for greasing pans

1. Add potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water and 1 tsp. of salt. Bring to a boil, uncovered. Cook until fork tender, about 10 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, place a large frying pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, onion and garlic, and sauté until onions are transparent. 3. Add apples and season with cumin, oregano and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, add broth and simmer for 3 minutes. 4. Drain potatoes, and add to the pan; season with salt and pepper. Cool. 5. To fill empanadas, roll out one piecrust to 1/8-inch thick, and use a 4-inch cookie cutter to cut out 5-6 circles. Repeat with second piecrust. Work quickly; once cut, place circles onto a cookie sheet and keep refrigerated until ready to fill. 6. Spoon 2 tbsp. of filling into the center of each pastry circle, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Brush edges with egg wash, and fold dough in half to enclose the filling and form a semi-circle; use a fork to tightly seal the edges. Chill for 30 minutes before baking. 7. Place empanadas onto a buttered baking sheet. Brush to tops with egg wash, and bake in a 375-degree oven for 30 minutes.

TOP LAYER 4 oz semisweet chocolate (or about 1 cup chocolate chips) 10 full-sized graham crackers, broken in half 20 large marshmallows (approximately)

1. Butter (or spray lightly with cooking spray) a 9-by-13-inch inch pan. 2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, place 3 tbsp. butter (cut into a few pieces) and 4 cups of marshmallows. 3. Microwave about 3 minutes (stirring after 2 minutes) until butter and marshmallows are melted. Stir gently. 4. Add cereal and stir to combine. (Try using a plastic or silicone spatula sprayed cooking spray.) 5. Immediately pour mixture into prepared 9x13 inch pan. Press into pan with spatula. 6. Melt semisweet chocolate (or chocolate chips) in microwave (at 50 percent power), in 30-second intervals, stirring between intervals. Heat until just melted. 7. Spread chocolate on top of cereal treats in pan. 8. While the chocolate is still warm, lay graham cracker squares on top, leaving a little space between each cracker 9. Put pan in the fridge or freezer until the chocolate has set (about 10-15 minutes). 10. Cut into squares with a sharp knife, using the lines between the graham crackers as a guide. Place treats on a large baking sheet. 13. Cut large marshmallows in half and place cut-side down onto graham crackers. Optional: When all the graham crackers are topped with marshmallows, use a kitchen torch to toast the tops. If you don't have a torch, you can toast the marshmallows in the oven. Preheat your oven to broil. Place baking sheet of treats in the oven, leaving the oven door slightly ajar. Broil for 30 seconds. Watch closely; they can burn quickly. Cool before serving.

S’MORE POPS Yield 10 • 30 minutes • $

1½ cups semisweet chips 10 large marshmallows 1 sleeve graham crackers crushed 10 wooden skewers 1. Temper the chocolate. Weigh out a large portion of the chopped chocolate. Weigh out another portion the weight of the first. Add larger amount to a pan in a double boiler and gently heat the chocolate until it is fully melted. Lower heat. 2. Add second portion of chocolate and stir until chocolate is fully melted (about 10-15 minutes). 3. Keep chocolate at a good working temperature. 4. Have chopped graham crackers set aside in a bowl. 5. By hand, dip the marshmallows halfway into the tempered chocolate. Pull marshmallow out of chocolate, letting the excess drip off, then skewer from the chocolate end, leaving the bare part of the marshmallow at the top. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs, then set top side down to allow chocolate to set. 6. When ready to pass out the s’mores, light your torch and set to lowest setting. Gently torch the exposed marshmallow by waving the flame across the surface. Quickly blow out any flare-ups on the marshmallows. Serve immediately.

Add chocolate chips to a heat-safe bowl large enough to rest on top of a pot without touching the bottom.

Fill pot with 1-2 inches of water. Heat over low heat until the water begins to simmer, then turn off heat.

Rest bowl of chocolate on top of the saucepan. Allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally with a spatula.

Once the chocolate is almost melted, remove bowl from the saucepan and stir continuously until chocolate is smooth and shiny.

DIp goodies in chocolate or use a pastry bag to drizzle as needed!

Perfectly Ruffled Take crepe paper from wallflower to shining star of your party decor.

TWO-TONE STREAMERS 1. Cut 12-to-15 inch lengths of streamer and set aside. 2. Set your sewing machine to the highest tension (ours was “10”) and the longest stitch (ours was “5”). Take the first two strips of varying colored streamers and lay them on top of each other (Don’t worry if they are different lengths). 3. Do a quick forward and back stitch and then sew down the middle of your streamers (so that both layers are sewn together). As you go, watch the streamers ruffle up. As you come to the end, grab two streamers and overlap them with the previous ones. 4. To add more ruffle, use your right hand to slightly hold the thread as you sew. This increases the tension, and you’ll see the streamers really ruffle up.
