  1. Dessert Party Favors

    Hide

    Leftover dessert doubles as guest favors when packaged in boxes that are as pretty as, well, pie. Photocopy template at 400 percent; trace onto card stock. Cut out the image with scallop scissors along scalloped edges and regular scissors on solid lines. With a straightedge and a bone folder, score paper along dotted lines. Fold along scored lines, and secure tabs with double-sided tape. Line box with parchment paper, place a slice inside, and tie on a tag.

  2. Using Leftover Cookie Dough

    Hide

    When scraps of dough get left behind after cookies hit the oven, turn them into a quick and tasty "streusel" topping for other baked goods, says pastry chef Chris Broberg.

    Form the extra raw cookie dough into a ball and freeze. Then, simply grate the frozen dough with a box grater over muffins, coffee cakes, cobblers, or other sweet treats.

    Here's another idea: Instead of freezing the dough, try baking the leftover dough strips then crushing them up to use as a crunchy topping for ice cream sundaes.

  3. Cinnamon-Candy Cider

    Hide

    Here's a potion kids are sure to love. Among the ingredients are cinnamon candies that give it zing. Stir 1 quart apple cider and 1/4 cup hard cinnamon candies in a medium saucepan over low heat. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly, until heated through and candies have melted completely, about 8 minutes. Serve warm.

    You loved our cornbread hors d'oeuvres baked in mini-muffin tins, so we found a way to make them even more scrumptious. Mix in one of the sweet, savory, or spicy flavor combinations listed in the recipe below, or create your own. You'll have appetizers to feed an army, or at least a few dozen of your closest friends.

  5. Honey Elixir

    Hide

    Long used in folk remedies for numerous ailments, honey can help quiet coughs. We mix it with cider vinegar, which some say also soothes throats.

    Mix 2 parts honey and 1 part cider vinegar (we like Bragg's Organic). Heat in microwave or on stove until warm. Sip it slowly, reheating as needed.
