Creamy Salami and Dill Pickle Dip

One of my favorite appetizers I remember from years ago is the one where you spread cream cheese over slices of salami with dill pickle spears rolled inside, and then you slice them to form little pinwheels.

The concept was super simple, and the flavor of those tasty morsels hit all the proper bells and whistles on the taste buds. I loved them then, and I still do now. However, this Cream Cheese Salami Spread with Dill Pickles is better and a whole lot easier. Honest!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust

I developed this easy recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust after I’d rewritten and remade my great grandmother’s recipe for Fence Cake (aka applesauce cake). 

Since the cookie crust for great grandma Patterson’s Fence Cake is ‘almost’ my favorite part of that particular dessert (not that I could choose), I wanted to use it again in another dessert recipe. And this is the story of how these delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake Tartlets with a Cookie Crust were born.
