Giant Chocolate Chess Pie

Giant Chocolate Chess Pie

If you love chocolate this is your pie! Decadently delicious and you won’t be able to stop at one slice. I must warn you, this thing is large, as it is made in a 9 inch pie plate. You can also make mini pies and all you have to do is adjust the baking time.

Apple Pumpkin Streusel Pie

Apple Pumpkin Streusel Pie

If you’re a fan of apples and pumpkin this is your pie! I used pecans in the streusel and pre-made pie crust. It’s perfect for all your fall celebrations! I also solved the problem of the soggy bottom you often get with an apple pie. A little 10-minute pre-bake did the trick.

Buttermilk Brownies

DESSERTS

BUTTERMILK BROWNIES all dressed up for Halloween! These brownies are lighter & fluffier than regular brownies, and are topped when still warm with a beautiful butter & confectioners sugar frosting. I have been making them for years and there’s a reason ~ they’re darn good. 

German Plum Cake

German Plum Cake

My mom always called this prune cake, but since I made this with plums I’m calling it plum cake. It’s a simple recipe and so delicious. More importantly, it reminds me of my mom. My family really loves this cake. It’s not too sweet and is perfect for this stone fruit.

Peach Cobbler

This cobbler is so easy & delicious you’re going to want to make it over and over! It’s a great way to showcase that yummy peach flavor with minimal effort. Serve with some ice cream and you’re set.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

DESSERTS

Who doesn’t love a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie? The original recipe calls for a cup of butter, but I have always found that a cup of shortening delivers a fluffier product. My family certainly agrees!

Mango Paradise Cupcakes

Mango Paradise Cupcakes

I was super excited to try Amoretti Artisan Natural Flavors & wow are they good! The mango flavor has such an elegant aroma & tastes like sun ripened mangos exactly! The vanilla cupcakes are made with Amoretti Almond Flour, honey & coconut oil. The mango buttercream icing was the perfect compliment & tastes like paradise.  There is no way you could get this kind of flavor with generic extracts or flavors. This product is all natural & seriously dense: 2 oz = 24 oz of fruit purée.  I’m hooked!

Lemon Oatmeal Cookies

Lemon Oatmeal Cookies

I’ve been making these cookies for a loooong time. The lemon flavor and coconut makes them extra special. They’re crispy on the outside & chewy on the inside. Get busy & then go grab a big glass of milk. Yum!

French Strawberry Cake

French Strawberry Cake

DESSERTS

I have been making this recipe for years. Got it from my mom, who used to make a lot of strawberry desserts.  This cake is quite easy – you just mix it up and put it in your baking pan. As easy as it is, I think it is very fancy looking. It for sure tastes good – my husband asks for it often. Very moist, not too sweet. He even asks for it for Thanksgiving. Go figure!
