Pumpkin is a great addition to no bake treats. It gives a whole new meaning to eating your vegetables. I hope you find at least one or two to make and share with friends during the upcoming holidays. These are even great to make with your kiddos!

Happy Friday! Let’s celebrate with some cookies, shall we? Don’t have to twist my arm!

They are so yummy and easy to make that it’s worth the extra long name. This recipe is easy enough for the kids to help make too! There’s very little ingredients and steps for these cookies, and more than likely you’ll have most of the ingredients on hand already.

 Easy, right? I love that they are so quick to make too! This recipe yields about 10-12 cookies depending on how big you roll the balls.

Food-a-licious Friday {99} No-Bake Mini Pumpkin Pies

Can you even believe that I have shared 99 recipes and food ideas??! Maybe not every Friday…and I’ve definitely had some help from friends along the way… but either way I am pretty proud of the compilation of recipes here at MFTM. Have you tried any of them? I’d love to hear about how you liked it, adapted it, changed it to make it your own… tell me about it! Also, if you want to try any other of the recipes I have shared, just click on the RECIPES tab at the top of the page. 
Today I am going to share a fun and EASY no bake, kid-friendly recipe I used in my preschool cooking class. The kids had fun and it even tasted yummy…SCORE!
No-Bake Mini Pumpkin Pies
They may not be the prettiest pumpkin pies…but they were fun and tasty!
What you will need:
1 small can of pumpkin
1 box of vanilla wafer cookies
2 small boxes of french vanilla instant pudding mix
whipped cream
cupcake liners
cupcake pan
bowl
whisk
spoon
Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the instant pudding and pumpkin.
Place cupcake liners in the cupcake pan. Put one vanilla wafer at the bottom of each cupcake liner. (You can also put the wafers in a baggy and crunch them up and put them at the bottom of the liner).
Spoon the pumpkin/pudding on top of the vanilla wafers in the cupcake liners.
Put into the fridge to cool for about 15 min. 
Remove from the fridge and spoon whipped cream on top.
DONE-ZO!
*Optional- Before or after cooking in the kitchen, read a fun book that’s related to whatever you made! This week we read the story The Pumpkin Patch while our mini pumpkin pies cooled in the fridge.

I’m thinking you could even use this idea to make an entire pumpkin pie rather than the minis. 
Super fun to have the kids in the kitchen helping you…this really is such a great recipe for them! 
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a beautiful weekend!

Food-a-licious Friday {89} Raspberry Lemonade Cheesecake Bars

Oh.my.word.
Are you a lover of cheesecake? If so, we are now besties. 
I ♥ cheesecake. 
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE it. 
Problem is, I’m always nervous to make a homemade cheesecake…they just seem so complicated to get right. 
I need easy. I need uncomplicated. But most importantly, I need cheesecake. 
Enter in…
{No Bake} Raspberry Lemonade Cheesecake Bars
{adapted from BHG.com’s Key Lime Cheesecake Bars}

Ingredients:
1 sleeve of low-fat honey graham crackers crushed (about 1 1/2 cups)
3 tbsp butter (melted)
1 tsp sugar
4 ounce box of sugar free Raspberry gelatin
3/4 cups boiling water
1 tsp lemon juice 
16 ounce container fat-free cottage cheese
8 ounce package of fat-free cream cheese (softened)
8 ounce container of frozen, fat-free whipped dessert topping, thawed
Lemons cut into wedges (optional)
Directions:
1. Crush your graham crackers and add melted butter and sugar and mix together in a bowl. Press into a 9×12 pan/dish (I use a glass casserole dish).
2. In another bowl, combine gelatin and water. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add in lemon juice and stir. 
3. In a blender or food processor, combine cottage cheese and cream cheese. Mix until smooth. 
4. Slowly whisk cheese mixture into the gelatin.
5. Fold in the whipped dessert topping (I don’t quite use the entire container of whipped dessert topping…I leave about a cup left in the container). 
6. Spoon the cheesecake mixture over the graham cracker crust.
7. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge to cool for 8-24 hours (or until firm). 
8. Remove from fridge, cut into squares, and serve! 
*Optional- Garnish with lemon slices.
Let me tell you… this cheesecake is SO SO good. 
It’s quick to make and super easy… perfect kind of recipe for me!

Have a great weekend, friends!
