I know people scoff at the phrase “easy as pie” because making pie doesn’t seem all that easy… but this Dutch Apple is so worth the work. I guarantee this pie will be better than any that you buy in a store, and it’s so good that it will have you rethinking the whole “apple pie is for fall” thing.
This recipe has all that is good in the world inside of it: dark chocolate chunks, walnuts, and homemade salted caramel. It’s gooey. It’s messy. It’s sweet. It’s salty. It’s crunchy. It’s crackly-topped. It’s MORE than you could ever ask for in one pan.
I turned 32 last week, and I decided to throw a party. The theme was Brunch and Boardgames, but in reality, this party was just a cover for my cooking and baking addiction. The piece de resistance was my butterbeer cake. For those of you who aren’t in the know (but honestly, if you clicked on a Butterbeer Cake recipe, you already know), butterbeer is a sticky sweet brewed concoction from Harry Potter.
Cozy winter desserts are wonderful, but sometimes (in the dead of winter) you start to miss the bright flavors and colors of warmer months. My Wild Blueberry Lemon Bars are certainly bright. They’re citrusy, they’ve got the sweetness of wild blueberries, and they’re neon pink! Whether you’re looking to brighten these dark winter days or summon an early spring, this is the dessert for you.
When I think about Starbucks during the winter, I don’t think about the red cups, Eggnog Lattes, or Peppermint Mochas. Instead, thoughts of Cranberry Bliss Bars begin dancing through my head. The only bad thing about Starbucks’ Cranberry Bliss Bars is that they’re seasonal, which means when the proverbial snow melts, these sweet treats also disappear. This winter I set out to fix that.
I’ve been going super pumpkin spice crazy lately because I found THE BEST pumpkin spice, and I’ve been putting it in everything, including this Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream, which was a huge hit at this year’s Friendsgiving!
This recipe is super easy and only requires five ingredients. It’s a real crowd pleaser and a cinch to make. Whip up a batch to impress friends and family this holiday season, or to have a little taste of fall any time of the year!
