No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie
2 1/2 cups crushed cinnamon graham crackers
1/2 cup light brown sugar
8 TBSP salted butter, melted
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
2 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 (8 ounce) tubs whipped topping
1/2 cup caramel sauce (optional)
1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans (optional)

In a large bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and butter. Press into the bottom and up the edges of a GoodCook deep dish ceramic pie pan.

In a stand mixer, combine cream cheese, pumpkin, spice and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Add sweetened condensed milk, beat until smooth. Then add 1 and 1/2 tubs of whipped topping (reserving the remainder of the second tub for garnishing the top of the pie), folding in the whipped topping until light and fluffy.

Pour the pumpkin mixture into the pie crust. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

If desired, garnish pie by piping dollops of cream around the edges, drizzle caramel sauce in the center and sprinkle with pecans.

Apple Cider Roast Chicken
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 70 minutes

3 cloves garlic
1 cup apple cider or unfiltered apple juice
3 fresh rosemary sprig
1/4 teaspoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
2 roasting chickens
2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 apple, halved
1 small onion, quartered
½ lemon, cut into wedges
2 cinnamon sticks

Heat oven to 375°F.

In a small saucepan, add garlic cloves, apple cider, rosemary sprig, and whole-grain Dijon mustard. Stir and bring to a boil, uncovered, over medium-high heat. Boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in 2 TBSP butter.

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Thoroughly season with 2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper. Transfer to rack on GoodCook non-stick roasting pan. Stuff each cavity of the chicken with ½ apple, 1 sprig of rosemary, a quarter of an onion, lemon wedge, and cinnamon stick.

Brush glaze on the skin of chicken and roast in the oven, uncovered, brushing chicken with glaze every 20 minutes while cooking. Cook for 60-70 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove from oven and thoroughly brush outside of the chicken with remaining glaze. Return to oven, and broil until the skin is dark golden brown and the sauce is bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes. Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.

For Garnish, if desired: surround the chicken with fresh sage and mini Rocket apples.
