  7. Good Grief ........ those pumpkin cheesecakes and I have the pan. Did you make your caramel ......I have never seen that in the store or the pumpkin spice kisses ....... I guess I do not get out enough but a chocolate kiss never hurt anyone. I might have to just make my own caramel ...... I know how to so why not :) Great post Bethie!!

  11. Seriously delicious post, Beth!!! I love all you've been baking. Those cheesecakes are delicious, I've done them before. I need to revisit that recipe. yum!! And we never made it to the pumpkin patch this year. I will have to live through your photos!
