|Ava's win....marshmallow butterscotch bars|
|our haul or should I call it our booty because that is exactly where it is headed!|
|the famous clipboard. Ava was busy keeping track of bids and winners. I can't help but save all of these papers.|
We not only bought treats but also contributed a pie/cake. After many delightful hours of research on Pinterest I ended up deciding to bake a pumpkin pecan pie cheesecake with a gingersnap crust using this recipe from the blog Piece, Love & Cooking (where I feel like I am packing on the pounds just looking at the pictures!). The recipe is a bit confusing but with help from my friend Nikki we were able to muddle through it. I am not sure how it tasted, obviously, but I can tell you that it smelled delish and that I was caught in a bidding war over it. No, I was not ashamed to bid on my own contribution. Wait, should I be? I am proud to announce (please read BRAG) that my pie brought in the highest amount of money...$42!
You can bet that I am already planning for next year... nutella cheesecake, mini meringues, rainbow cake? 100th year anniversary means I am going to have to really kick it up a notch. If any readers in my area are interested in participating in this event or wanting to meet some of the nicest people ever please let me know and I can point you in the right direction!
