Labor Day Dessert Recipes (Part 1)

I probably should have taken pictures, but the food was gone before I could find my camera. Take my word for it though....these desserts are wonderful

Apple Cider Pound Cake- I didn't make the caramel glaze, but the cake was delicious without it. Tasted like an Autumn day.
