Butterscotch and Peanut Butter Blondies

Butterscotch & Peanut Butter Blondies

Butterscotch is a delicious confection made with brown sugar, butter and vanilla. It can be turned into cookies, puddings, cakes and caramels because the flavor combination is so versatile. The key to a successful butterscotch treat is being able to taste all three of those builidng block elements in every bite.

Cronuts – doughnuts made from croissant dough – are delicate layered treats that are well worth indulging in when you have a fresh batch. Maria’s Pleasing Plates came up with an easy to make recipe for S’mores Cronuts that are even more decadent than the original cronuts are, and don’t require a trip to a specialty bakery. The donuts are made with crescent dough, a ... Read More »

Blackberry Crumb Muffins

Blackberry Crumb Muffins

I like coffee cakes topped with lots of crisp, buttery crumb topping. Coffee cakes aren’t the only baked good you can add streusel to – even cookies and¬†pancakes are fair game – and, frankly, I wish that I would remember to add a crumb topping to my goodies a lot more often. These¬†Blackberry Crumb Muffins have a tender, berry-packed muffin base, but are a standout ... Read More »

Nordic Ware Cinnamon Bun Pan

Nordic Ware Cinnamon Bun Pan

A batch of warm, sticky cinnamon buns is a wonderful treat on a lazy weekend morning. They’re actually a wonderful treat any time, however you are much more likely to spend a few hours making a batch on a Sunday than on a busy weekday morning. Cinnamon buns are a relatively time consuming pastry to make, since the bread must be kneaded, proofed, filled and ... Read More »
