It is a cold and blustery day here in our neck of the woods. As I am typing this, it is 32 degrees outside, brrr!! So when I am cold, I start to think about food and drinks to warm me up. This time of year I keep apple cider in the house to use for recipes and to drink on cold days.



These mulling spices from Kauffman's Fruit Farm and Market kick up that apple cider to an entirely new level. These are packaged just like a tea bag. No need to make your own sachet of spices to drop into the cider with these. Plus, you can use these 2 -3 times before they lose their flavor.



One of my favorite things to make to impress my guests is a no bake cheesecake. I like to put these in small jelly jars or pretty glasses to make them even more special. It just makes it a lot more fun to serve and to eat. This recipe uses instant cheesecake pudding, crushed graham crackers, whipped topping, apple pie filling, and reduced spiced apple cider. Within no time at all you have a wonderful dessert that your guest will think you took a long time to make.




First you will want to take 2 cups of apple cider and heat it up in a pan. Place 2 mulling spice bags in and let it simmer. After about 5 minutes of a good simmer, remove the spice bags and continue to reduce the apple cider. It will not take long to reduce to almost a caramel consistency. Keep you eye on it because it can go too far really fast. This wonderfully reduced apple cider will be combined into the instant pudding and also drizzled on top.


Place an assembly line of all your ingredients and this will come together in a snap. Once they are all assembled, drizzle a little of the apple cider reduction over the top.
