TWD: The Most Extraordinary French Lemon Cream Tart Another delicious week participating in the Tuesdays with Dorie challenge! This week was a lemon tart and particularly a lemon tart that I've had my eye on for a while. I'm going to try and keep this short since I'm a bit bogged down with school right now. I halved the lemon cream (but forgot to half the butter the first time, resulting in a very hard and for some reason iron-tasting "cream" so had to remake it), but didn't half the tart dough. As for the lemon cream, I didn't love it. Check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers to see their lemon tarts!

Put the sugar and zest in a large metal bowl that can be set over the pan of simmering water.
~Churro Cheesecake Well, luckily for my waistline It took me this long to figure out that I’m capable of creating a “cheesecake” type treat! I’ve always been intimidated by Cheesecake goodies because something about the cheese and umm..the cake, seemed like something I’d SO totally mess up..lol! Well, I didn’t mess it up this time! In fact I don’t think it’s even possible to mess these delicious, Churro inspired Cheesecake Bars up. They’re such a fun way to bring a State Fair feel to your wintery holiday table! And besides, who doesn’t love a cinnamony, cheesecakey treat, hmmm..who?! What you’ll need for 24 happy people: 2 cans (8 oz. each) Pillsbury Crescent Dinner Rolls 2 pkg. (8 oz. each) Philadelphia Cream Cheese..softened 1 tsp. 1 egg, slightly beaten 1 cup Sugar..divided 2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon 13×9″ baking pan Directions: Unroll one of the cans of the Crescent dough and press it onto the bottom of a greased 13×9″ baking pan, to form a bottom crust. Spread it evenly onto the crust. NOW it’s Churro-fied…
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries. What? Yes! - SugarBlog - SugarDerby Um... ok. Why didn't I think of this?!?!?! Of course you can hollow out a strawberry and stuff it full of cheesecake. Of course you can!!! Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Here's what you need: About 20 strawberries... this was a little over one carton for me. 8 oz pkg softened cream cheese 1/2 cup powdered sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla 1 sleeve of graham crackers 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (optional) First you will want to wash the strawberries and cut off the tops. Now core them! A thin ended apple peeler.... And a small knife.... I liked the knife better! The easiest way to core the strawberries is to hold the entire berry in your hand (wrap your fingers around it) and literally just core out the center. Um... Now to make the filling.... Beat the cream cheese. Now to fill the strawberries!!! I didn't want to hurt my zip lock baggies feelings so I used one to crush the graham crackers in. Now fill the strawberries, leaving just a bit coming out the top... then sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.
Pumpkin Pie Pancakes (with Caramel Sauce) I had a bunch of pumpkin puree leftover that needed to be used and I figured that it was the perfect opportunity to make one of my favourite pumpkin dishes, pumpkin pie pancakes, and to update the photos for the recipe!

~Caramel Crescent Snickerdoodles! Hmmm, where do I begin? Should I start with the warm flaky & tender, Cinnamon Sugar coated Crescent Nugget filled with oozing Caramel?! Or should I start with how easy these are and probably the most delicious and impressive thing I’ve ever made with only 3 ingredients? Orrr maybe I’ll start by saying that these little gems are the best Snickerdoodle anything I’ve ever Snickered or Doodled! What you’ll need for 20 Snickery Doodly Delights: 1 Pillsbury Crescents Seamless Dough Sheet Caramel Candies..one per each Doodle. 1 cup of Cinnamon/Sugar..blended to your taste Directions: Cut out about a 2″x2″ piece of dough and wrap it gently and snuggled around one Caramel. Place them onto a baking sheet about 1″ or so apart… Bake them at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes, or until they’re firm and slightly puffy.

Pumpkin Spice & White Chocolate Cheesecake + Two Variations You’ve heard the saying, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Well, it was definitely the impetus for this Thanksgiving dessert, as I was torn between pleasing my stepdad, Mike, who loves White Chocolate Cheesecake and my daughter’s boyfriend, Chris, who expressed a desire for Peanut Butter Cheesecake (which I considered but then swapped for pumpkin in honor of the holiday.) The combination of the two flavors was even better than I expected, with the white chocolate lending the pumpkin a good measure of sophistication. The only aspect of this dessert that gave me pause was marbling the two cheesecake batters. This time, I poured large dollops of alternating batters, side-by-side, in one layer and again in a second layer. Pumpkin Spice & White Chocolate Cheesecake Pumpkin and white chocolate are an unexpected and completely harmonious flavor pairing. Base ¼ cup fine, dry, chocolate cookie crumbs Topping 2 cups sour cream ½ cup sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla Serves 8-12. Variations
