S'mores Cookies

S'mores Cookies

The weather has started to cool down here in North Carolina and I have been desperately wanting to make s’mores. However, we do not currently have a fire pit! I have been forced to improvise, but am so happy that I did! These cookies are the perfect treat for a cool night or a socially distanced patio dinner with friends. They are soft and buttery, but with all the campfire goodness!

Caramelized Banana Pudding

This fun twist on a classic southern dessert is perfect for warm summer days. This caramelized banana pudding has a depth of flavor that is incomparable. The custard is light and sweet with hints of vanilla while the bananas and biscoff cookies provide a warm spice from the cinnamon. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

 

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are few things better than a chewy chocolate chip cookie when you’re in the mood for something sweet. The edges of these cookies are perfectly crisp, but the centers are still chewy and soft. The key is letting these cookies chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).

Happy Easter! I hope everyone is staying safe indoors this holiday. While this is definitely not a typical Easter for my friends and family, I am happy that I was able to do some baking this morning. Carrot cakes on Easter have become a tradition in my house. They are sweet and earthy. I love to spice mine up with extra ginger and cinnamon to contrast with the rich buttercream frosting.
