Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

A few weeks ago, our parents went to a party and requested that we make something for them to bring. We made these cupcakes (a whole bunch of mini ones, plus a few regular ones for pictures!) and wow, were they amazing! The pumpkin cake is truly delicious, with the perfect amount of spice and…

Baby Bluebird Cupcakes

Happy almost Easter, everyone! Sorry we haven’t shared any spring-related recipes prior to this; we’re not very good about planning ahead so we generally do any holiday baking on, or the day before, the holiday. But we do have these to share, and they are quite possibly the cutest cupcakes ever (or at least the…

Soft Frosted Sugar Cookies

No doubt you have likely had a Lofthouse sugar cookie- super soft with a very thick layer of frosting. It’s weird that they are hard to resist, because if you think about it, a) they couldn’t be faker tasting and b) how do they manage to look so pale even after being baked? Well, these…

Swedish Almond Cardamon Wreath

This dessert is the type of thing that, if we had never had it before, we would be tempted to skip over for other desserts. It’s not that we’re particularly picky, but “Swedish Almond Cardamom Wreath” just doesn’t have the same ring to it as, say, “Salted Caramel Double-Chocolate Brownie.” However, we’re here to tell…

Eggnog Muffins

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their families and friends! We had a nice, quiet Christmas at home with our grandparents and family, enjoying some delicious baked goods and their company! These muffins were actually our breakfast Christmas morning, and they were too delicious not to share, even though Christmas itself is technically…

Sable Cookies

Sometimes we think that there is nothing better than something flavored purely vanilla. If you are having a vanilla craving, these are a good answer because they have spectacular vanilla flavor. Vanilla comes in two forms here: a vanilla bean and two tablespoons of vanilla extract. We actually improvised quite a bit from the original…

Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

We have been wanting to make sugar cookies with royal icing for a very long time. Who can blame us? Sugar cookies with royal icing look beautiful and are impressive for party favors and for Christmastime! We finally tried them for the first time this weekend and we were very happy with the results! Now,…

Peppermint Bark Cookies

A few weeks ago, well before Christmas baking season had really begun, we saw a bag of peppermint bark baking pieces at Trader Joe’s. It obviously went into our cart pretty quickly! We waited for a little while to use them, and finally made these cookies. They were very, very good! The peppermint bark pieces…

Popcorn Balls

Popcorn balls are something that we have enjoyed since we were little, thanks to our popcorn-loving mom. It is only time for us to put a recipe for them on our blog! They are often overshadowed by other easy desserts, such as rice krispie treats, but in our opinion, they are one of the yummiest…

Oreo Peppermint Bark

This peppermint bark is pretty much amazing- there are no other words to describe it. Peppermint bark is usually delicious made in the traditional fashion (unless the layers of chocolate and white chocolate are too thick, resulting in a boulder of hard-to-eat candy) but adding chopped Oreos to the top brought these up a couple…
