Some last minute T-day dessert inspiration

I can't lie to you guys ... I had every intention of making these inspirational desserts this past weekend. I always seem to underestimate how worn out I will be after leading a tour. I got as far as making Shutterbean's Bacon Oatmeal Raisin cookies and while amazing, I had slightly bigger plans for them.

Oatmeal Bacon Raisin Cookies

Over on Instagram, Butter + Love had shared a photo of some oatmeal raisin cookies that had been used to create an apple butter sandwich. My version would have involved the bacon oatmeal raisin cookies and some McCutcheon's apple butter. If you get a chance to try this, please let me know how amazing it is. I will live vicariously through you.

The dessert I couldn't quite motivate myself to test? A Cozy Kitchen's Salted Caramel Apple Pie, but in miniature. I always choose the dessert with salt on it over one without, so this pie seems like the ultimate Thanksgiving dessert to me. (Pumpkin pie is OK in my book, but it seems to have lost its nostalgic appeal since it gave me food poisoning a few years ago.) The pie crust in my refrigerator will just have to wait to be put to use a little longer.

Will you be making anything sweet for Thanksgiving this year?
