Mini Brown Butter Sweet Cherry Pie Cupcakes

These cupcakes might be mini but they are big on flavor! Brown butter cake is filled with sweet cherry filling, swirled with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream, and topped with an almond brown butter crumb. Mixing in some Luxardo cherry liqueur into the filling help to bring out the bitter almond and tart flavors of the cherries and the warmth and spice of the crumb brings it all together.

Vanilla Almond Plum Berry Crisp

I don't think the sweet summer plum gets the recognition it deserves. The sweet and tart stone fruit is the star of this crumble. It is an easy dessert but has a show stopping color and flavor. The vibrant fruits are topped with a vanilla almond crumble and with just a hint of cinnamon to round out the flavor. The bright flavors of summer blended with a little warmth and spice of the coming fall season.

Caramelized White Chocolate Mousse

Have you heard of Blonde Chocolate? Run, don't walk and buy some! Better yet, make some and use it in this Caramelized White Chocolate Mousse. Caramelized White Chocolate is like butterscotch's chic older sister. If you like toffee, buttery shortbread notes this ones for you. I used this delicious caramelized gold in a decadent mousse for two (two generous portions).
