**** Smitten Kitchen - Pear, Cranberry, and Gingersnap Crumble (2 tsp (not Tbsp) cornstarch and triple the ground ginger. Add more seasoning to the pears themselves and use salted butter and full amount of salt)
Sweet Potato Casserole Cookie Bars adapted from Scarletta Bakes: The bars are denser than cake, and a little lighter than a brownie or blondie. Sweet potato puree is mixed into a batter that's full of warm fall spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. And then after they are baked, they are topped with marshmallows and toasted.
