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.

Blueberry Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies with Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt Filling

Okay, So calling these cookies “breakfast cookies” might be a stretch. But blueberries, oatmeal, and greek yogurt sound like breakfast to me. Let's just call these "everything in moderation" everybody needs a little sugar, breakfast cookie sandwiches. Creamy and sweet but still a bit tangy vanilla bean greek yogurt filling is sandwiched between two soft and chewy blueberry almond oatmeal cookies.

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.

Tiramisu Cheesecake

This is a mashup of two of my husbands favorite desserts. Creamy and decadent vanilla mascarpone cheesecake is layered with boozy coffee syrup soaked lady fingers. It is all topped off with coffee whipped cream and sprinkled with dutch processed cocoa powder and chocolate covered espresso beans.  You get all the flavors of tiramisu with the rich texture of classic New York style cheesecake.
