Pecan Pie Bites

From The Baker Mama

Pecan pie is a traditional dessert on Thanksgiving. These make it even easier to enjoy this sweet, sticky treat. They are bite sized and easier to get into your mouth as you watch the game! We love them so much. 

White Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Blossoms

From A Bajillion Recipes

Perhaps one of the most fun and versatile cookies ever, these Blossoms are all the buttery goodness that you love, with a sweet and spicy Pumpkin Spice white chocolate Kiss nestled in the center. Very tasty and very much welcome. Who doesn't love pumpkin spice? 

Endive with Pear, Walnut and Goat Cheese

From Purely Elisabeth

Not all of these recipes are sweet. A savory, crispy bite awaits when you assemble the perfect mix of flavors. These endive boats are make a wonderfully elegant appetizer. 

Puppy Chow Ritz Cracker Cookies

From Half Baked Harvest

Modeled after that tasty treat with almost the same name, we just had to share these ritz cracker cookies with everyone. They are so simple to make and taste like you worked all day at them. Imagine these packaged up as a sweet gift for your child's favorite teacher or your mailman? So adorable and oh so good. 

Duck Fat Paprika Popcorn

From Honey and Birch

We saved the best for last. Popping some corn has just raised the bar to the highest standards for snacking. This lucky popcorn is cooked in duckfat, giving it a rich, earthy flavor, and fresh ground paprika is sprinkled on the fresh kernels. It's a taste sensation that will be remembered
