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…

Oh Yes I Did: Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

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

Apple-Apple Bread Pudding (MY PICK!)

Today is a banner day, my friends! Today is the day that we baked my chosen recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie, the online baking group I belong to. If you’re not a member of this group, please understand that this is a Big Deal. There are approximately five bajillion members (give or take a kablillion)…

TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars

Say hello to entry #276 in the “Not Much To Look At But Darn Tasty” category of desserts: Dorie’s Applesauce Spice Bars. I wasn’t head-over-heels about making this recipe, since it seems very autumn-ish and it’s still only August. More fresh berry desserts, please! However, the day after I made this, we had a beautiful…
