Recipes to Revisit: Desserts

Red Velvet Valentine Macarons I’ve made macarons a couple of times and they turned out surprisingly well despite the negative press they tend to get. They were a little frustrating, but their chewy sweetness is worth it if I’m having a moment of forgetfulness regarding the last time that I made them…

Cider-poached pears A non-alcoholic version of my adult soft pears

Pina Colada Smoothie I had my first (virgin) pina colada in 8th grade and fell in love. Now that I’m of age, I think a little coconut rum would be an excellent addition to this recipe, but on a hot day by the lake I’d take this either way.

Lots of cookie decorations! I like to think the houndstooth how-to is proof that God loves me.

Berry Charlottes I have a secret to share, my name’s not really Charlie, it’s Charlotte. I like things that share my name. I pestered my mom to buy me a Charlotte pan in high school but to no avail. Guess I’ll just have to stick with these minis.

Peppermint Ice Cream I love peppermint ice cream at Christmas time, and seem to remember a punch recipe where a big portion of the flavor came from it. I’ll have to put finding that on my to-do list.

Coconut Butter Cookies These look nice and light, and would be perfect for serving on the side with tea.

Popcorn Bucket Cake This would be really cute for an awards night cake, or an awards night at the sorority house, or just movie night. I’m not a fan of fondant, so I’d probably only make the red stripes fondant with a white buttercream layer underneath, making the fondant a little easier to avoid.

Champagne Poached Pears Growing up we often had those canned pears that come in a can and let’s be honest… LOVED them. This is a little more grown up way for me to continue eating them.

Sweet Goat Cheese Souffles In my mind goat cheese and sweet don’t exactly go together, but I’m thinking it might be a little like cream cheese and sugar, and if that’s the case, yum. In any case the pictures look pretty scrumptious and make me think it’s definitely worth a try.

Pumpkin Ice Cream We’ve been making lots of homemade ice cream this summer, with the new wooden 5 quart ice cream maker up at the lake, but I’m ready for some fall flavors to mix in!

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries I really don’t even know if you need a push to click this link… cheesecake + strawberries + chocolate? You’re still reading this?

Reindeer Gingerbread Men This link is all about the decoration Momma and I make 400-600 gingerbread men every year and always end up with leftover dough, and this seems like a festive way to change up the decoration. Added bonus: my brother hates deer and I’d love to make him a box. 🙂

Melted Snowman Cookies I know these are a little out of season, but how cute would they be for the first warm day of spring!

Pineapple Champagne Sorbet I love pineapple, I love sorbet, so this is pretty much the perfect light dessert for me. It also looks perfect if you just want a glass of champagne but don’t want to waste an entire bottle. (Leftover champagne is a rarity in a college apartment, but perhaps those of you of a more mature age group might actually use this tip).
