Hazelnut Hot Chocolate On A Stick

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate On A Stick | From SugarHero.com

December is winning, you guys. Not in the “#winning!” sense, but in the “I feel like I’ve been beaten with the big heavy holiday stick, and I am not fighting back” sense. Real talk? I’m bushed. Whining about work has got to be tied with weather talk in the competition for Things No One Cares…

Can we agree that we’re all Thanksgiving-ed out? If you don’t celebrate it, you’re like, “Shut up with your dumb national holiday already! And PS those Pilgrim hats look stupid.” And if you do celebrate it, you’re like, “I have 647 things to buy at five different grocery stores today and a whole house to…

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!)…
