Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. In that time, this blog has had its 2nd birthday and I’ve gone back to school to get my masters. I’ve come to find that has had me gravitate towards baking my tried and true recipes rather than developing something new. I do have a few more recipes to share that I made in the summertime. The first being a chocolatey orange combo that is great for any time of year – especially the upcoming holidays. The cake is slightly sweet, citrusy and moist and the dark chocolate balances it all out.
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season! If you love cutout cookies but want something a little different, look no further! I just added some cinnamon to a butter cookie base, but you’re welcome to add more festive spices to your liking. You can enjoy these cookies plain, with gobs of frosting, or a nice layer of chocolate ganache. Continue reading “Cinnamon Cookies”→
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Today I have a recipe that’s I have been wanting to make for a good while. Chocolate and cinnamon is one of my favorite flavor combinations and this cookie doesn’t disappoint. The cinnamon chips gives the cookies a warmth fitting for the colder months coming up or for a holiday cookie platter. I slightly altered my recipe for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, which resulted in a cookie that was soft on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Happy November! If you need a recipe for a grey day, look no further. I must admit this cake was the result of a happy accident. I was attempting to make whoopie pies, but noticed they baked more like a cake than a whoopie pie. I put the rest of the batter in a cake pan and topped it off with some cinnamon and sugar and the cake became what it needed to be. This cake pairs well with a hot beverage and a lazy Sunday. This cake is both dense and light and the cinnamon sugar topping gives it a satisfying crunch and a punch of cinnamon.
Good Morning and Happy Sunday! It’s already halfway through September and I am so so ready for fall, despite the current weather hanging onto summer with all its might. I’m the kind of person to make pumpkin foods year-round, so it’s nice when it’s seasonally appropriate. If you’re looking to dive into the leaves of fall, try out these pumpkin pasties. The crust is nice and flaky and the filling is rounded out well with a medley of spices. It’s all topped with a sugar and spice mixture to give it an extra crunch. I recommend listening to the Harry Potter soundtracks while making these. It ads a certain, dare I say, magic to the whole experience.
