Foods of Fall is our Theme!

At our meeting on October 3, 2013 we used some local seasonal ingredients to make these delicious fall recipes:

The apple-stuffed croissants were inspired by the recipe from this blog:

We veganized the recipe by using Earth balance and brown sugar (surprisingly, Pilsbury croissant packs are vegan)! Here are the pictures of our lovely apple stuffed croissants:

The goat cheese was added on at the very end so that there was a vegan option! Everyone was happy 🙂
