Sharing homemade treats is always a nice way to perk someone’s day up, and a good excuse to plan a day or two of baking. If you’re making edible gifts this year, this Peppermint Fudge would make a wonderful treat to include.
The nice folks from Pillsbury invited me, along with several bloggers, to create some great new cookie recipes for the holidays. I took the opportunity to enlist our teenage daughter to help create these Marshmallow Creme Filled Chocolate Dipped Sandwich Cookies. They were easy and fun. Although they may look at little complicated, they’re quite simple. Really! The most difficult (if you can call it difficult) thing is planning extra time for chilling in between steps.
This week of pie recipes begins with an old-fashioned, yet new to me, Oatmeal Pie. I’ve had quite a hankering for a good oatmeal cookie for about a week now which made me wonder about making an oatmeal pie. I did a quick search for Oatmeal Pie, and of course it exists.

One of the many recipes that I marked to try soon was Ree’s recipe for the Perfect Cream Scone. I’m not usually a scone fan, because I think they tend to be dry and crumbly, so I was happy to find this one slightly crispy on the outside with a soft, yet coffee-dunking worthy inside.

This easy and fun cookie decorating technique has become a family tradition that Denise’s mother started many years ago. This tradition is truly simple and sweet.
Fresh citrus scents and colors have been on my list of must haves lately. Must be the ringing in the freshness of Spring. Anyhoo, I’ve been craving a grapefruit cake ever since I saw one in Thomas Keller’s cookbook, Ad Hoc at Home. I made some alterations to the famous Mr. Keller’s, in an attempt to lighten it up a bit, but I don’t think I lightened it up at all. Maybe a tad.
