Full of brown sugar, bourbon, cinnamon, and pecans – this King Cake Layer Cake has all the flavors of the traditional NOLA dessert! Instead of a yeasted dough, moist cake layers studded with pecans and sprinkled with cinnamon are soaked with a bourbon syrup and topped with layer of a light and airy Brown Sugar Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Baby Jesus figurine not totally necessary, but always totally fun!
This isn’t a new recipe.
At least, not entirely! It’s just an improved version of an
already incredibly popular recipe on this little ol’ site of mine.
Cara Cara Orange Bars are full of flavor from bright winter citrus at the season’s peak! Earthy thyme in a buttery shortbread crust compliments the sweet without overpowering it. Enjoy this simple and delectable recipe before the end of citrus season!
I am living for these Cara Cara orange bars with thyme shortbread
crust right now!
It’s such a blessing that peak citrus season also happens to be in the dead of winter! Gimme all those winter citrus recipes!
Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches are a delicious make-ahead frozen dessert that boast all the wonderful flavors of winter! Buttery, chocolatey shortbread cookies sandwiching creamy peppermint ice cream – what could be better?!
If I’m being honest, these Peppermint Mocha Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches were not the original plan. There was going to be a pavlova situation happening, but it didn’t…uh…y’know…happen.
That’s ok! We adjust and change and frankly, make the thing
that feels right and lights us up instead of what we feel we should do
or what the original plan was.
I’m really softening with age.
These shortbread cookies though? They’re not soft. They’re
crisp and buttery and crumbly and perfect for sandwiching layers of creamy peppermint
ice cream. After they’re dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint
candies, of course!
Peppermint Mocha Cereal Treats are an easy, no-bake Christmas
dessert option for anyone and everyone. They combine all the delicious flavors
of a Peppermint Mocha Latte with the ease of marshmallow cereal treats. Find
the recipe at the link below!
This is the last of ‘em. The last of the Christmas
Then again. Maybe not. Maybe I’ve got another peppermint-y,
mocha-y treat coming.
Because I’m totally on board with Gilmore Girls Season 7. At least, one point they make in Season 7, because, by and large, the final season is basically a gigantic dumpster fire. (Stay with me here – I have a point, I promise.)
