Coconut Macaroon Tart With Passion Fruit Cream

Coconut Macaroon Tart With Passion Fruit Cream | From SugarHero.com

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens. Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens. Coconut tarts filled with passion fruit creeaaam– these are a few of my faaaavorite things! Real talk: I like raindrops just fine, am neutral on roses, am allergic to cats, lust after copper kettles, and I’ve never owned a woolen mitten…

Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie

Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie | From SugarHero.com

Behold, the baker who doesn’t like pumpkin pie is posting a pumpkin pie recipe. Hypocrisy, thy name is Elizabeth. I took one for the team with this post. And by “the team,” I mean my husband, who loves pumpkin pie but rarely gets to enjoy a freshly-baked version. And by “took one,” I mean “baked…

Cranberry White Chocolate Sweetie Pies

Cranberry White Chocolate Sweetie Pies | From SugarHero.com

My dad was the pie master in my family growing up. For a large man, he sure had the delicate touch with pie dough, and his crusts were always a buttery, flaky delight. After pressing the dough into the pans, he would roll the scraps of dough into “sweetie pies,” our name for little hand…

Persimmon Almond Rosette Tarts

Persimmon Almond Rosette Tart | From SugarHero.com

Pity the poor persimmon. Continuously overlooked in the produce aisle, overshadowed by flashier, more familiar, more accessible fruits. Misunderstood, underutilized, and all too often ignored. Persimmons, like Rodney Dangerfield, just can’t get no respect. Isn’t it time to change all that? I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t always been on the persimmon…

Mile High Apple Pie

Mile High Apple Pie | From SugarHero.com

I hope you’re a filling person. Crust people, you might want to keep on scrolling. Because in the great pie battle of crust vs filling, this Mile High Apple Pie is allllll about that bass filling. Five pounds of filling, to be exact! It’s amazing that a giant basket of apples (five pounds! eighty ounces!)…

Matcha Chocolate Tarts

Matcha Chocolate Tarts | From SugarHero.com

These “Moldy” Matcha Chocolate Tarts are inspired by my husband Jason and his impeccable taste. On a trip a few years ago, we stopped by the Vosges chocolate boutique in Las Vegas and bought an assortment of truffles. They were expensive, and we are cheap people, so we decided to savor them and dole them…
