Apple Butter Cake is a two-layer cake flavored with homemade apple butter and apple pie spice and covered in a frosting made with apple cider for an apple taste in every bite.
Shortbread dates many many years to 12th century Scotland. Shortbreads were a delicacy at that time and were reserved for only special events. So what makes a shortbread? Butter. Shortbread actually started out like a biscuit bread, but by adding in a large amount of butter the dish became crumbly. Back in the day, the term “short”, meant “crumbly” (a high proportion of fat to flour).
The title of these balls of chocolate is pretty accurate. The balls are filled with chocolate milk powder and marshmallows. When hot milk is added to the bombs, they open up, or ‘explode’ to let the hot chocolate mix and marshmallows out. When stirred, you have a decadent and delicious cup of hot chocolate!
Snickerdoodles are old-fashioned cookies that have been around since the late 1800s. I have a snickerdoodles cookie recipe if you are craving that! But, if you want the same cinnamon sugar flavor in fudge, this is the recipe to follow. It’s easy to make, and who doesn’t need another variety of fudge to give as gifts or have around, especially during the holiday season!
With the holidays upon us, it’s that time of year to make as many sweets as possible to share! Fudge seems to be a hit at most holiday gatherings or potlucks. I am surprised that National Fudge Day is in June, but I will indulge in it year-round if I must.
Is it marshmallow? Is it fudge? Actually, divinity is a candy that has the texture of a marshmallow, although there are no marshmallows used in the recipe. It’s also similar to fudge, but still so different. (Is that clear enough😉 ?) If you have never tried divinity, this is an easy recipe to give it a try and a taste!
The holiday season is all about treats, especially cookies! When any recipe can be made with Christmas colored candies or sprinkles, it just puts me more in the holiday spirit. This cookie starts with the perfect dough and ends with plenty of red and green M&M’s.
There is no alcohol or flames to make this delicious bread. But, you will still get the banana fosters flavors of the bananas coated in butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. (You could add a little bit of rum extract if you wanted.) The flavors are baked into this delicious bread that can be enjoyed with a morning cup of coffee, as a snack, or even served as a dessert.
Peanut Butter Cheesecake is a smooth and creamy cheesecake made with peanut butter and a homemade peanut butter cookie crust.
You still have time to make this peanut brittle before National Peanut Brittle Day, which is January 26th! Making your own candy is worth it; it tastes so much better than the storebought stuff. But, how did this become so popular? One story is that in the late 1800s, a woman was making taffy. But, she accidentally used baking soda instead of cream of tartar. She didn’t want to be wasteful, so she continued cooking until she had this crunchy treat.
Food is like love, it should be entered into with complete abandon, or not at all
