Buttermilk Blueberry Buckle

Buttermilk Blueberry Buckle

A buckle is a type of cake that is so loaded with fruit that the cake begins to “buckle” under the weight of it all. The finished dish is partway between a cake and a cobbler, and it’s a great way to turn a big batch of summer berries into a mouthwatering dessert.

Strawberry Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Strawberry Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Everyone in my family is in love with my¬†Strawberry Snickerdoodles, probably because we’re all big strawberry fans and just can’t seem to get enough of those berries during the summer!

Strawberry Snickerdoodles

Strawberry Snickerdoodle

A snickerdoodle is a classic cookie, the kind of bake sale staple that we all have eaten alongside chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies. It’s a sugar cookie rolled in a generous coating of cinnamon sugar that gives it a warm golden finish and a spicy sweetness. That sugar coating doesn’t need to be limited to cinnamon sugar, however. You can mix it up with ... Read More »

How to Make Strawberry Sugar

Vanilla sugar is the most common flavored sugar, and it’s one that you’ve probably made – it’s a great way to use up spent vanilla beans – or sprinkled on top of hot or cold cereal for breakfast. I keep a big container of it in my pantry and use it to add extra vanilla flavor to cookies and quick breads, too. But vanilla sugar ... Read More »
