Fall is here which means I have an excuse to make as many Pumpkin themed crafts or recipes as I want. Jif Whips has a new Pumpkin Pie Spice Jif Whips that is so good I could just sit down with a spoon and eat it right out of the tub. It is smooth and creamy, the perfect blend of pumpkin and peanut butter. My kids LOVE the Uncrustables that Smuckers make, so I thought I would try and make my own but shaped like a pumpkin. This would be perfect for kids lunches for Halloween or Thanksgiving. All you need to make this is a pumpkin cookie cutter, two slices of bread and Jif Whips and Jelly if you want.Spread the Jif Whips in the middle of the bread, try and NOT get the peanut butter on the edges (so it can crimp shut). If you have a hard time knowing how big of a spot to fill, make a slight mark in the bread with the cookie cutter. Put the two pieces of bread together.Use the pumpkin cookie cutter and press down in the middle of the sandwich. If some of the edges are not crimped shut, use your fingers to pinch them shut. Store in a sandwich bag, and watch for your kids smiles as they find an adorable pumpkin sandwich in their lunch. You can use the left over crust to make bread crumbs or homemade croutons.

One of my favorite snacks is nuts, pecans, almonds and cashews are my favorite. Fresh roasted or candied nuts and one of those things I can literally eat the whole pan. Yummy Yummy Yummy. Trust me when I say they are as delicious as they look. These pecans are also perfect for giving as gifts. It’s an inexpensive way to make your friend’s and family’s mouth water all year long.
In a large mixing bowl whisk your egg, water, and spice until it becomes foamy. Next add your pecans and sugar. Stir well till they are evenly coated. Spread in an even layer on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 250 for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
