Bakefest Weekend!

This past weekend, my mama, the hubs and I had a mini bake-a-thon. It started with cranberry orange scones, and ended with pound cake. We had pizza, beer, and lots and lots of sugar. It couldn't have been a more fun day. The next day, we hand delivered treats to some of our favorite family members and friends, as sort of our way of doing trick or treat :) We surprised some friends, others knew we were coming, and we all in all just had a GREAT time.

I'm going away for the weekend, but I wanted to leave you with a few of the recipes we followed. Maybe you'll find yourself baking up a storm! We did little to no substitutions. The only one I can think where I changed anything up was the pumpkin whoopie pies. I added about 4 tsps pumpkin pie spice instead of all the spices that are called for :) Turned out divinely! Oh also, Brandon didn't dip the biscotti. Anyway, enjoy!
