Who doesn't love a good Key Lime Pie? This recipe comes straight from Savannah, Georgia and it is THE best! Try it with whipped topping or a meringue topping.

I used real key limes .. it's worth the squeeze!! My family said it was the best key lime pie ever. I loved that it was so easy to make.



Key lime pie has got to be my favorite kind of pie, ever. The tangy sweetness just can’t be beat. This key lime pie is perfect for the summer time when you are wanting a nice, cool, citrus-y dessert.

The Best Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting

Image
Wow! This really is the best brown sugar buttercream frosting. I had a box spice cake mix and an abundance of brown sugar left over from Christmas baking, and I was hoping to find a way to use both. This frosting was perfect for the spice cupcakes. In fact, it’s so good that I’m about to slice an apple and eat some of it as a dip!! This recipe is a keeper!!
A unique take on a traditional butter cream frosting. Rich, creamy and delicious with a hint of caramel. This Best Brown Sugar Buttercream Frosting is extremely yummy and would be great on so many types of cakes:  Chocolate, Apple, any kind of Spice Cake, Pumpkin … let your imagination be your guide... 

even Pumpkin. It is very delicious, so easy to make and tastes a little bit like chocolate chip cookie dough! You'll find yourself making this frosting over and over again.

Lemon Sugar Cookie Bars

Image
I made this in a 9X13 (1/4) sheetpan and I doubled the recipe and had extra cookie dough even after loading the top. I wrapped it up to save in case I get a cookie craving. I know in my gas oven it took longer than 30 minutes for both bakes. They are delish! I could not resist trying them while warm…lol
I’ve baked plenty of treats for family, friends, and colleagues, and I’ve never received praise like after I made them these lemon cookie bars! It kind of made me feel like I’ve been making them garbage food up until now because they went so gaga over these bars. They are universally enjoyed; adults and kids raved about them. Everyone wanted the recipe. They commented on the perfect ratios of dough-to-filling, and sweet-to-tart

These easy lemon bars have a sweet sugar cookie crust topped with a tangy lemon cheesecake filling and then topped with more sugar cookie crumble. The perfect balance of sweet and tangy.

Oreo Cookie Milkshake

Image
Yeah, the good stuff in the middle! Then it’s topped with MORE homemade cream filling, some more Oreo cookie bits, whipped cream, and more Oreo cookies! It’s pretty much all of your daily calories in one milkshake. Again, I’m sorry. 
How do you eat an Oreo cookie? Are you a dunk-it-in-milk eater? Break it in half and lick off the cream filling? Break it in half, eat the side without the cream filling before eating the good side? Or do you just bite it? Or perhaps one bite? 

Ready to make your own milkshakes? This the recipe for the milkshake which also includes the recipe for making homemade Oreo cream filling:

Blackberry Pie

Image
I made this pie last night, and it was amazing. My blackberry bush has gone haywire this season producing large quantities of blackberries. So far I’ve made jars and jars of preserves, a cobbler and a pie, but now that I’ve made THIS pie, I’ll be freezing whatever more blackberries I can get from the bush to make this pie throughout the winter! I used the pre-made boxed refrigerated pie crusts, but brushed them with melted unsalted butter and sprinkled with sugar. YUM-O!
It is a family favorite, and it holds together the juices doesn't leak out once it cut ,,, I make two at a time , cause one doesn't last one day with our family ❤❤

The best blackberry pie EVER. No kidding! All butter crust, loads of blackberries, spiced with a little lemon, cinnamon, and almond extract.

Triple Berry Pie

Image
Triple Berry Pie is my FAVORITE Thanksgiving Pie, and it's super easy to make with fresh or frozen raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. Perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas or any time you’re craving some pie.

It has the perfect amount of liquid to yield a pie slice that holds its shape. Some berry pies are so juicy that they completely fall apart when you cut into them. This one will turn out beautifully, as long as you let it cool for several hours before cutting into it.



This Triple Berry Pie has way less sugar than most berry pies. It’s still amazingly sweet, but it’s not overly sweet, like some berry pies tend to be.

Gingerbread Truffles

Image
These Gingerbread Truffles are not only super yummy but they look really cute too! These don’t require many ingredients and you may already have them at home.

Salted Caramel Butter Bars

Image
I made caramel bars once and they vanished so quickly, they are sooo good! They came out perfectly on the second try. I wonder if I messed up some measurements the first time? Anyhow AMAZING RECIPE!
Quick tip on flattening the dough at the bottom of the pan: After putting the dough at the bottom, cover it with parchment paper or saran wrap, then use another 9×13 pan to flatten it.
They are so rich and buttery, complete with that soft and tender sugar cookie crumb and the golden, decadent caramel layer. If you can’t find salted caramel sauce, or just want to cut back on the salt, feel free to use a regular caramel sauce (or make your own caramel!) and sprinkle a little more sea salt on top.

Salted Caramel Butter Bars are gooey, ultra buttery cookie bars loaded with rich salted caramel. So divine!

Although it takes some time to put each layer together, it is very easy and it looks so impressive for the little amount of effort involved. My bf thought it was delicious and texted: “YUMMMMMMMMMMM”.

Apple Cider Cupcakes and Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buttercream

Image
I made these today. Delicious! This recipe is definitely a keeper.They are definitely moist and have all the right qualities, I might have to add a little baking soda in there to counter the vinegar. 
Oh my goodness!!! These turned out just absolutely AMAZING! I made them for a family lunch and they were a HUGE hit! People were honestly mad when they were gone! 
I was thinking of how I could make the frosting have a bit of a cider taste as well, so I decided to use apple cider instead of milk at the end. Turned out lovely

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cone recipe and tutorial

Image
This is the best of both worlds! Cookies and ice cream together. This is brilliant!! My nephews would be thrilled!
These are just a classic, crunchy, chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you have one you love try it, but it needs to be thin and crunchy, has to hold it’s shape. No soft cookie recipes will do for THIS! So There are a few tutorials out there, I did mine waffle cone style, a large circle that you roll into shape, overlapping the ends.
Ingredients
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour1 teaspoon baking soda1 teaspoon salt1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened2/3 cup granulated sugar3/4 cup packed brown sugar1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract2 large eggs1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips

Pumpkin Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

Image
OMG! I have made six of your donut recipes so far. All amazing but this one is hands down my favorite so far! Addictive. YUMMO!!!!!! Best vegan donuts I’ve had and so easy to make. 
I made these for breakfast this morning and after realizing that the only difference between the vegan and traditional version was the coconut oil, I decided to just use vegan butter (Earth Balance, to be exact). We really liked them since we still got the butter flavor of the traditional version!

Moist and fluffy Pumpkin Cinnamon Sugar donuts are baked, not fried, and ready in just 20 minutes!

Almond Flour Cream Cheese Crepes

Image
Wow, these are terrific!! I love crepes with butter and sugar, so subbing the Swerve worked perfectly! These are veryyyy delicate, and it took a little trial and error to get it just right. I heated the pan, applied oil and wiped most out, then added a little butter, and then the batter, swirling as normal. I waited to lift the edges when they got very dark brown (longer than with white flour), and used the lifted up part to flip the crepe.
These low carb almond flour crepes stay flexible even after a few days in the fridge! A delicious breakfast or dessert, stuff them with your favorite sugar-free fillings. I find it a little amusing how going low carb and gluten-free has made me a much more adventurous home cook. One would think that the strange alternative flours and sweeteners would feel limiting and keep me bound to tried and true recipes and methods. But I've come to know these alternative ingredients so well, to feel so comfortable with their quirks and idiosyncrasies, tha…

Easy Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bites

Image
We dipped the bites in semi-sweet and milk chocolate. You can dip the whole pretzel bite or just half of it or make a combination of both. They are fun and festive thanks to the holiday theme sprinkles. They will look gorgeous on your holiday table or packed in mason jars and given away to friends and family.
We love Christmas candy, especially if it’s easy and involves caramel. Our goal with these pretzel bites was to use just enough caramel that it will melt into the pretzel holes and not go over it. Half of a caramel square was just perfect to achieve that!

Super easy candy idea for the holidays! Great gift for chocolate and caramel lovers!
