Lemon Oreo Tart

Until I few months ago, I did not think lemon and chocolate went well together. When anyone suggested this flavor combination to me, I would always tell them that those flavors don’t go well together. If you are thinking that as well, this recipe will change your perspective!

Have you ever tried lemon and chocolate together? This Lemon Oreo tart features a chocolate cookie crust filled with a luscious, tart lemon custard filling. With both lemon juice and lemon zest this tart is full of lemon flavor and will have you going back for more!/>

My boyfriend and I were ordering dessert in Portugal when we saw “lemon oreo thing’” as one of the dessert options. Intrigued, we ordered it along with another dessert since one dessert is obviously not enough to share. When it came out it was essentially a lemon tart with an oreo cookie crust! I immediately dove in and was hooked. The creamy and tart lemony filling surprisingly went very well with the chocolate cookie crust. Ever since then, I have been determined to recreate this dessert.

Strawberry Mascarpone Stack Cake

When thinking of desserts to make for Passover I came up with the traditional flourless chocolate cake. Cheesecake also came to mind (it was fabulous!), but I had been thinking about a meringue dessert and wanted to try something new. I thought that I could do meringue cookies with cream and fruit, or I could try a meringue stack cake. The second option was definitely more adventurous, so that’s what I chose. This Strawberry Mascarpone Stack Cake is the perfect dessert for strawberry season and happens to be gluten free!

This delicious meringue stack cake combines two layers of meringue with macerated strawberries and a luscious mascarpone whipped cream. This Strawberry Mascarpone Meringue Stack Cake is also the perfect gluten-free dessert and one that everyone will love!

Apple Rhubarb Pie

As I settle in and get cozy for this upcoming snow storm, I am excited to be sharing with you my newest recipe for Pi Day! Growing up in New England I always looked forward to fall for apple picking and all the wonderful apple deserts. Although it’s turned to winter (and hopefully spring soon), I decided to combine this fall staple with one of my family’s favorite spring fruits, rhubarb. Together, these ingredients form a wonderful Apple Rhubarb Pie! Layered on top of a flaky all butter crust, this tart filling gains sweetness and fragrance from apples, rhubarb, sugars, and an array of warming spices.

White Chocolate Chip Cookie Butter Cookies

After truffles, blondies, coffee cake, and mini pies I have finally made it to cookies! A few months ago I was looking for baking ideas and came across these Biscoff blondies from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Although I have always seen and heard rave reviews about cookie butter, I had never baked with it myself. This got me thinking and inspired me to create this recipe for White Chocolate Chip Cookie Butter Cookies!

Mini Chocolate Cream Pies

Growing up, when deciding what to bake my dad often floated around the idea of a black bottom pie. He would talk about how this was one of his favorite treats that his grandmother used to make. Instead of a black bottom pie I decided to make one of its close relatives, chocolate cream pie! While large pies are delicious and perfect for a crowd, I always love to make handheld desserts. Thus, I wound up with this recipe for these mini chocolate cream pies!
