Pumpkin Butter Ants on a Log



Autumn Ants on a Log by I Want Crazy

This post is brought to you by me and products from Dillman Farm. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’ve currently been quite obsessed with pumpkin butter

I have gone through a few jars and am constantly finding new ways to use it

This is my most recent obsession! Pumpkin Butter Ants on a Log

I LOVE the classic Ants on a Log – peanut butter and raisins, but this version blows it out of the water

A base of cream cheese, topped with the best Pumpkin Butter ever, than crispy bacon and you can’t forget the ants. . .I mean raisins.

These are way more than just an after school kid snack, they could even be used to entertain at your Fall party! But, with only 5 ingredients, they are easy enough to whip up for any occasion.

Autumn Ants on a Log

I’m so excited for Halloween! Only a couple more weeks! 

I’m in my (late) 20s and still love dressing up and going to parties…if it wasn’t crazy weird and kind of creepy I’d totally go trick-or-treating!

However, my kiddo is old enough to go, so I still get to have a little fun ;)

I’m one of those people that love to have a “family outfit” ugh, I know! I’m not excessive but I love finding a clever and cute costume

This year my little man (2 1/2) wanted to go as a shark, he’s old enough that he definitely is starting to have input on the things I dress him in, so I suggested a bunch of costumes and that is what he went with

So, we are going to be gross and match and I’m going to be a lifeguard, mainly wear a red shirt with a whistle and my hubby is gonna be a maimed surfer dude. . .am I getting too excited for this?! Never mind, I don’t want to know :)

Don’t forget to check out Dillman Farm on Facebook, they are the awesome company I work with and that provides me with these crazy good products that I just can’t get enough of! This is where you can find the delicious ingredients for my recipes, including these Pumpkin Butter Ants on a Log!

Easy Carrot Cake Pie


Carrot Cake Pie 1
I have another great treat for you guys! Kristin from Marie Callender’s®. She has been awesome enough to share an amazing recipe that will make the next pie you make out of this world! Seriously, I’m so excited to make this, check out her super easy recipe and show her some love! Thanks so much Kristin, take it away!

Hello readers! Kristin from Marie Callender’s® here… I am thrilled to be writing for Kat today! Just in time for fall and the beginning of October, I have an easy carrot cake pie recipe for you. After a day of apple picking and hayrides in Champaign, IL, my friends and I decided to bake. We are saving apple pies for another night. This recipe is a spin on the classic carrot cake—just add pie crust! We nibbled on our pie slices with some tea, Apples to Apples and an Audrey Hepburn marathon. Happy baking! 

Easy Carrot Cake Pie:

Ingredients

1 Marie Callender’s® Pastry Shell

1 cup flour

½ tsp. baking powder

1/8 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 ½ tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ginger

1/4 cup melted butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

1 cup shredded carrots

½ cup raisins

½ cup chopped pecans

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350° F.

Place pastry shell in a 9” pie plate and move to refrigerator.

Carrot Cake Pie 2

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger in a medium-sized bowl. Set aside

In a mixer, blend butter and brown sugar. Stir in vanilla and eggs until smooth.

In ½ cup portions, stir dry ingredients into wet mixture. Add carrots, raisins and chopped pecans. Stir until well-blended.

Carrot Cake Pie 3

Pour mixture into pastry shell. Bake for 25 minutes; check with a toothpick (comes out with only crumbs). Let the pie cool and enjoy!

That’s it! This carrot cake pie recipe satisfies my fall season cravings. I recommend enjoying a slice with a cup of hot tea or a latte!

Carrot Cake Pie 4

Does this not look AMAZING! Mmmm, I love carrot cake and put it inside a flaky pie crust – welp there is no chance I’m eating just one slice! Below is an easy to print and save recipe, so be sure to check it out and let me know what you think!
