1 1/2 cups dried fruit
4 tablespoons Grand Marnier

First, mix together the dry ingredients ’til combined. Then stir in the butter. ( the mixture will be lumpy; it’s okay)
Add in the dry fruit of your choice. Then fold in the Grand Marnier and heavy cream ’til thoroughly incorporated.
Sprinkle a little flour onto your board and roll out dough into a thick rectangle shape. Cut out triangle shapes and place onto a silpat/parchment paper.
*Take care not to place to close together, they will spread.
Bake for 12 minutes exactly.
While scones are baking make a simple sugar and oj mixture. (it’s just a Tbls. sugar and 1/4 cup oj mixed together)
As soon as the scones come out of the oven brush each one with the sugar mixture.

6 apples (I used gala apples)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
optional: graham cracker crumbs, caramel sauce, pecans
Chop the tops of the apples off and scoop out the insides. Discard the core and seeds.
In a medium bowl cream together cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in vanilla, egg, and cinnamon until smooth. Fill each of the apples ⅔ full with the cheesecake mixture.
Place filled apples on a baking sheet (make sure they aren’t touching) and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until cheesecake filling is set. Transfer to a plate and place in the fridge until completely cooled.
Serve apples at room temperature or chilled. If desired, top with caramel sauce, graham cracker crumbs, and pecans.

Peanut Butter Cookies made with Truvia® Baking Blend
Hey there everyone! Looking for a snack that isn’t going to make your diet null & void? Well, here’s one great recipe from Truvia that is 70% lower in sugar than regular cookies. Just remember one serving size is 2 cookies
3⁄4 cup Truvía® Baking Blend
1 cup peanut butter
3 Tbsp shortening
3 Tbsp + 2 tsp unsalted butter
1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
3⁄4 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 375° F.
Combine Truvía® Baking Blend, peanut butter, shortening, butter, egg and vanilla in a large bowl and mix on low speed until combined.
In a second smaller bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add slowly to the larger bowl and mix until combined.
Shape dough into 11⁄4 inch balls, flattening slightly on the top and bottom.
Place cookies 3 inches apart on a parchment-lined or ungreased cookie sheet.
Using a fork, press a crisscross pattern in each cookie.
Bake 12–14 minutes or until lightly browned.
Allow to rest 5 minutes on pan, then place cookies on a wire rack to cool completely.
**These cookies have 120 calories and 3 grams of sugar per serving as compared to 150 calories and 11 grams of sugar per serving in the full-sugar version.
4 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup flour
zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp almond extract
2 (16-oz) packages frozen blackberries, thawed and drained
To make the crust and topping, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to mix. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes, and add to the flour mixture. Process until the butter is evenly distributed but the mixture is still crumbly, 30-60 seconds.
Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the mixture to use as the topping. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the pan, and bake 12-15 minutes. Cool for at least 10 minutes.
To make the filling, whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then add the sugar, sour cream, flour, salt, lemon zest, and almond extract. Gently fold in the berries and spoon the mixture over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining flour mixture evenly over the filling, and bake 45 to 55 minutes.
Cool at least 1 hour before cutting into bars, or scoop out of the pan to serve cobbler-style.
