Soft Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Put down the cookbooks! I have found the perfect Christmas cookie. Bold words, I know. But hear me out. First of all, they’re cute. Some might even say “cute as a button.” Second, they’re packed with holiday flavors like cinnamon, ginger, molasses, chocolate […what? chocolate is an every-time flavor!], and orange zest. Third, one batch…

Cinnamon Crunch Ice Cream

If I had to pick my favorite ice cream flavor, it would be a hard choice between Mint Chip and Cinnamon. Which, admittedly, doesn’t seem like a fair fight. Mint Chip is the heavyweight, appearing absolutely everywhere, while underdog Cinnamon is criminally ignored as an ice cream flavor. I first tasted cinnamon ice cream as…

Cinnamon Mousse Tarts

True confession time: these were supposed to be a Cinco de Mayo dessert. The shells are made with Mexican chocolate, the mousse filling is flavored with lots of cinnamon…it was all going to be so perfectly appropriate and on-theme. But, you know, baking and photographing food is only one part of this whole blogging dealio….

Cinnamon Puff Pastry Twists

You know that saying, “Life is short, eat dessert first”? I’ve decided to rewrite it. First of all, it doesn’t make any sense. Even if life was long, I would still be eating dessert first. And last. And probably in between bites of salad. Obviously. Plus, there’s a much more important life lesson I need…

Cinnamon Bun Bread Pudding

I have made a decision. If I’m ever forced to Sophie’s Choice my desserts, this bread pudding will come out on top. I know. I KNOW. It’s a big statement, and I don’t say it lightly. But this is literally, truly, my favorite thing I have made all year…and maybe ever. It’s that good. I…

Cinnamon Bun White Hot Chocolate

I think I dreamed this cinnamon bun hot chocolate. I woke up one morning with the idea fully formed in my head. Was it divine inspiration? Crazy pregnancy cravings? My crafty husband whispering delicious things in my sleeping ear to plant them in my subconscious?* *For the curious among you, Jason actually does talk in…

TWD: Cinnamon Ice Cream Tart

This week’s TWD recipe, for a Coffee Ice Cream Tart, can be divided into two categories: things I did differently, and things I wish I’d done differently. In the “Things I Did Differently” camp, we have the ice cream itself. Instead of doctoring up store-bought coffee ice cream with ground almonds (??) I made my…

Two words: sugar cookies. Two more words: cinnamon rolls. One question: can they be combined? Oh, yeahhhhh.
