- Cinnabon cinnamon rolls are popular for a reason. They’re sweet, soft and smothered in a cream cheese frosting that is likc-your-fingers good. When they’re fresh, like most things, they at their best and you can’t get any fresher than baking your own Cinnabon Knock-off Cinnamon Rolls, like Tartelette did, in your own kitchen. These rolls are perfect for a weekend breakfast or afternoon snack – as though you needed an excuse to eat cinnamon rolls. The best part is that the recipe is relatively easy and it is something that you can get the whole family – kids included – involved in making. And they’ll all enjoy eating the rolls that much more in the end.
- If you’re a fan of apple pie, chances are good that you’ll like Sweet Amandine‘s Dutch Appeltaart. This tart is tall and impressive looking, with a crust that is a lot more substantial and a bit sweeter than your typical pie crust. It makes a good contrast to all of the apples in the filling, especially if you opt for a tarter apple in your pie. Serve this plain or with whipped cream, or with a big scoop of ice cream melting into the still-warm apples.
- It is easy to put together the Turtle Tart that the Blue Eyed Bakers recently made. The difficult part is waiting for the filling to set up in the refrigerator before you can cut into it! The tart starts with a graham cracker crust, then is topped with a layer of dark chocolate and pecans, followed by a layer of homemade caramel, followed by milk chocolate and more pecans. It is a good combination. Just try to make it the night before so you don’t find yourself waiting by the fridge for the hours to pass before you can eat it!
- When you give the presentation of a good lemon meringue pie a little bit of a twist, you can take that comfort food classic and turn it into a very elegant dessert, like Foodbeam‘s Lemon Meringue Tart. This beautiful tart starts with a rich tart dough made that includes ground almonds, which help give the crust more flavor and keep it from getting soggy under the creamy lemon filling. The meringue is swirled on top in a more understated way than the big piles you’ll find on a pie, but when the small peaks of meringue are lightly browned before serving, the tart starts to look irresistible.
- Tomatoes might not be your first choice of a pie filling ingredient – especially if you want to make a sweet pie – but one look at the Caramel Green Tomato Pie that Biscuits and Such baked might have you reconsidering. The pie starts with a graham cracker crust that is filled with layers of sweet, creamy caramel and sliced green tomatoes. It is topped off with a few fried green tomatoes – in a nod to a caramel and fried green tomato dessert that inspired this one – that act as a crunchy top crust for the pie. It’s different, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a delicious pie!
