2 Cups Raw Rice
3&1/2 Cups Water
1 Can Campbells Cheddar Cheese Soup 10&3/4 OZ. Size, you may use Cheddar & Broccoli Soup if you wish!
2 Heaping TBS Chopped Dried Vegetable Flakes (Optional but I LOVE them!)
2 TSP Chopped Dried Parsley

Lower temperature to medium cover & let simmer 20 minutes covered or until rice is tender & liquid is absorbed. Stir a few times during the 20 minutes so rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan.

Pumpkin, Cranberry, & Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

Be ready for a sensory overload of Autumn's best flavors! This is not your regular Cinnamon Roll. This is Pumpkin dough wrapped around a sweet Craisin filling that incorporates Pecans & Cinnamon to make a Fall treat!

3/4 Cup Sugar & 3 TBS, Cinnamon stirred together & then set aside!

1 Packet Yeast, 1 TSP Sugar, Stirred into 1 Cup Warm Pumpkin Puree in a deep bowl, set aside!

In a Deep Mixing Bowl beat the following together:
1/3 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Melted Butter
1 TSP Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Egg
Beat well!
Add 1/2 Cup Warm Milk
Add the Pumpkin Mixture & beat well

Mix 4 Cups Bead Flour or Regular Flour but I use Bread Flour, with 1/4 TSP EACH Ginger, Nutmeg & Cloves. 
Add 1/2 of the flour mixture to the wet batter & beat well. Add the rest of the flour mixture & stir until it is blended well, Dump out onto a floured surface & knead to mix the dough & you should have a stiff dough. If still to wet add more flour as needed. IF dough becomes stiff & you have leftover flour mix just stop adding the flour mixture! You should have a stiff stretchy dough not dry & not to wet either!Put dough back in your deep bowl, cover & let rise until doubled. Once doubled turn out on your floured surface & roll out into a rectangle about 9 inches by 13 inches. Pour 1/3 Cup melted butter over the surface & spread it out evenly. Now sprinkle over the butter your 3/4 Cup Sugar & 3TBS Cinnamon mixture evenly over the butter! Now liberally sprinkle the surface with as much Craisin & Chopped Pecans as you wish. I used about 2/3 Cup of each! Now roll up into a log as tight as you can but don't squeeze it! In a large Glass pan at least 9x13 inches or larger add 1/4 Cup Melted Butter & Sprinkle 1/4 Cup Sugar over the butter. Now slice the log into 8 even slices. Lay Cut side down into your buttered & sugared pan. Cover & let rise until not quite doubled but puffy! Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees. Once rolls are raised up & puffy but not exactly doubled bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes! Check at 20 if browned & raised & dough test done remove it might take 30 or so minutes for baking insert a toothpick to check & make sure dough is done! Once baked remove from oven & let cool 5 minutes in the pan & then dump them out! While they come down to  nicely warm roll mix up the following Cream Cheese Frosting!
4 OZ Cream Cheese softened
4 OZ. Butter Softened
2 TSP Vanilla
2 Cups Powdered Sugar Dash of Salt.
Beat Cream Cheese & Butter, add rest of the ingredients & beat well! Add more Sugar if needed to make a spreading consistency! If frosting gets to stiff add milk to make smooth! SPREAD THICKLY OVER WARM ROLLS & SERVE!

Pumpkin, Apple Shoofly Pie

This is the newest dessert creation, my very own spin on Pennsylvania Dutch Shoofly Pie. Adding Apples & Pumpkin to the mix just took Shoofly Pie to the next level! This could easily become my favorite Thanksgiving pie!

2 Cups Flour
1/4 TSP Salt
2 TSP Sugar
1/3 Cup  Cold Butter
1/3 Cup Shortening
1/2 TSP Vanilla
This makes enough for 2 deep nine inch pies. I roll out one & freeze the other for another time!
Mix all dry together stirring well. Add butter & shortening cutting into the dry to make fine crumbs. Now stir in the vanilla & cold water using just enough water to dough come together. Roll out  1/2 of the dough on floured surface large enough to fit a deep 9 inch pie pan. Cut off overhanging dough then crimp & flute the edges. Now onto the filling!
Mix together in  deep bowl.
1 Cup Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 TSP Salt
1 TSP Cinnamon
1/2 TSP each of Ginger, Cloves, & Nutmeg
Stir well the cut in 1 Heaping TBS of Shortening. Cut together like crumbs!  Remove 3/4 Cup for sprinkling on the top of your pie. In this 3/4 Cup add 2 TBS Brown Sugar cutting into the crumbs! Set aside .
Back to your remaining ingredients add the following:
1 Cup Molasses
2 Beaten Eggs
1 TSP Vanilla
1 TSP Baking Soda
Stir well!
1& 1/2 Cups Pumpkin Puree ( If making only Pumpkin Shoofly make this 2 Cups Pumpkin!)
1 Cup Hot Water. Stir very well!
5 Medium Apples Peeled, Cored & sliced thin! (If making this without pumpkin then use 8 apples!) Stir again! 
Pour all into the shell! It will look like this!
    Now sprinkle on those crumbs you kept aside & sprinkle the top with a nice sprinkle of Cinnamon!
Bake in a preheated  oven at 375 Degrees for 40 minutes or until done. Pie is done when it is completely set with no jiggling when you move the pie. The pie will also puff up when done!  Let cool completely before serving!
   This pie is so very good! Creamy pumpkin filling with tender apple slices, that molasses goodness blended through & then the glorious spices make this the perfect combination! My husband Frank came up with this idea & I give him credit, it is pure genius! The best of fall taste & all in one pie! I know you will love this beautiful & tasty pie! ENJOY !
