1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 6-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
In large food-storage plastic bag, mix granulated sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
Separate each can of dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into quarters, adding biscuit pieces to bag and shaking as you go. When pieces are coated, arrange in pan. (If you run out of mixture, remove dough pieces from bag and add 1 to 2 more tablespoons granulated sugar to bag.)
In 1-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar, butter, pumpkin and cream cheese over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Beat mixture with whisk until mostly smooth (there may be some tiny pieces of cream cheese, but that’s okay). Pour mixture over biscuit pieces in pan. Place pan on cookie sheet to catch any spills.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 2 minutes. Place heatproof plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before serving. Store in refrigerator. Source: Pillsbury

Apple-Cinnamon Chop Bread

1 loaf frozen sweet bread dough
3 large apples
½ cup sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon

Thaw dough at room temperature on a cutting board lightly sprayed with vegetable oil spray for 2 hours, or until thawed. Pat into a 10" circle on cutting board. Cover with a cloth and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Or dough may be thawed and allowed to rise overnight in the refrigerator.
Meanwhile, peel and core apples and slice into a bowl. Toss with sugar and cinnamon and let stand at least 30 min. When dough has risen, remove apple mixture from bowl with a slotted spoon, leaving behind any accumulated juices. Pile on dough. Draw dough up around apples. With a large, sharp knife, slice bundle about five or six times across, then five or six times in the other direction. With knife, gently mix by lifting dough and apples from bottom and piling on top. The dough pieces should be about 2" square. With a spatula, gently mound mixture on a lightly greased baking sheet, re-shaping into a circle and making sure most of the filling touches the dough.
Bake at 350°F for about 30 min. Remove from oven and let stand 10 min. before removing from baking sheet.

Cranberry-Pecan Bread

1/2 cup orange flavored liqueur
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick, halved
1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries (or defrosted if frozen)
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup chopped, toasted pecans
1 teaspoon orange zest
1 teaspoon vanilla


In a saucepan, combine the orange liqueur, sugar, water, cloves, and cinnamon stick and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the cranberries. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the berries burst, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the berries cool in the liquid. Remove the cinnamon stick and cloves and discard. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly grease a 9 1/4 by 5 1/4 by 2 1/2-inch loaf pan. In a mixer bowl, using the mixer on high speed (or using a hand mixer), cream the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and beat until light and fluffy. Into a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a small bowl, combine the buttermilk and orange juice. Alternately add the dry ingredients and buttermilk mixture to the creamed butter, beating after the addition of each. Fold in the reserved cranberry mixture, pecans, orange zest and vanilla. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake until a tester comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm or at room temperature. (Can be made ahead. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature 1 day or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

DEAD BREAD

5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 packages dry active yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon crushed aniseed
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
zest from 1/2 orange, finely chopped
4 eggs

Glaze:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup orange juice

Combine 2 cups of flour with the yeast, salt, aniseed, cinnamon, and sugar; set aside.
Heat the butter, milk and water until very warm. Do not boil or get too hot or you will kill the yeast. Whisk the warm liquid into the flour-yeast mixture. Add the eggs, aniseed, and orange zest.
Add the flour a little at a time until a soft dough is formed. The dough should not be sticky.
Knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. The wrap should touch the surface of the dough. Let rise until doubled in size, about 1-1/2 hours. Punch down. Pinch off pieces of the dough and shape into bones (or whichever shape your prefer).
Let rise 1 hour.
Preheat over to 350°F. Bake loaves 30-40 minutes or until done.

Glaze:
Boil the sugar and the orange juice until the sugar dissolves, stir constantly.
Brush bread with orange glaze while bread is warm.

Panettone, Italian Christmas Bread (Bread Machine)

For a 1 ½ pound loaf:
¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
1 ½ teaspoons anise seeds, crushed
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup candied orange peel

Add ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed, or otherwise as directed in manufacturer's instructions. Add the raisins, pecans, and orange peel at the tone for adding fruits and nuts. I use the sweet bread cycle, but a normal cycle would likely work fine.

Glaze (optional): Combine ½ cup sifted powdered sugar, ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, and enough milk (2 to 3 teaspoons) to make a glaze of drizzling consistency.

Orange Glazed Blueberry Scones

2 cups unbleached flour, plus more for rolling berries
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut in chunks
3/4 cup buttermilk or cream
1 egg
1 pint fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; mix thoroughly. Cut in butter using 2 forks or a pastry blender. The butter pieces should be coated with flour and resemble crumbs.
In another bowl, mix buttermilk and egg together, and then add to the flour mixture. Mix just to incorporate, do no overwork the dough.
Roll blueberries in flour to coat, this will help prevent the fruit from sinking to the bottom of the scone when baked. Fold the blueberries into batter, being careful not to bruise. Drop large tablespoons of batter on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until brown. Cool before applying orange glaze.

Orange Glaze:
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
2 oranges, juiced and zested

To prepare Orange Glaze: combine butter, sugar, orange zest, and juice over a double boiler. Cook until butter and sugar are melted and mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and beat until smooth and slightly cool. Drizzle or brush on top of scones and let glaze get hazy and hardened.

1/2 pound grated fontina cheese or mozzarella
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
Basil Vinaigrette, recipe follows

Preheat a grill.

Grill the sausage on both sides until golden brown and cooked through, about 10 minutes per side.
Brush onions and peppers with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the onions and peppers until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Remove the sausage from the grill and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Remove the onions, separate into rings, and roughly chop.
Remove the peppers and slice into 1/8-inch thick slices.
Heat grill to high. Brush dough with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn over and grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the grill and place on a flat surface.
Divide the cheese among the 4 pizza rounds. Divide the sausage, onions and peppers over the cheese.
Place the pizza on the grill, close the cover and grill until the cheese has melted, about 3 to 4 minutes.
To finish in the oven, preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the pizza on sheet pans and bake until the cheese has melted, about 5 to 10 minutes.
Mix together the ricotta, extra-virgin olive oil, and oregano in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Remove the pizzas from the oven and drizzle with Basil Vinaigrette.

Breadmachine Boboli Type Pizza Crust

1 cup water
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. active dry yeast
1 tsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp.
Italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle

Add all ingredients (except) second parmesan cheese to breadmaker in order listed by your manufacturer. It is a good idea to put the garlic down inside the flour so it does not slow the yeast. Set breadmaker on dough setting. When complete, form two crusts on pizza pans, sprinkle with parmesan cheese, cover and let rise again. Bake 5-10 minutes at about 450°F until light brown. Cool. Wrap tightly in foil and freeze until you get the pizza urge. Great to have around for easy last minute dinners. Good way for kids to make pizza too. Source: Marla
