One of my favorite summer treats is a Drumstick ice cream cone, the salty peanuts, the chocolate shell, the caramel middle surprise checks all the boxes for me. This ice cream pie is inspired by all of those flavors. The pie starts with a crunchy waffle cone crust, then a layer of vanilla ice cream swirled with a decedent salted peanut butter caramel, then, it is all topped with hot fudge and salted peanuts. Finish it off with a few swirls of whipped cream and a healthy drizzle of the caramel and you have one show-stopping no bake dessert.

These macarons combine fall spices and summer stone fruit. Fresh plums are roasted with brown sugar, cinnamon, clove and star anise to warm up and deepen their sweet flavor. Then, they are mixed into Swiss meringue buttercream before being sandwiched between two fresh macaron shells. A taste of summer with the spice of upcoming fall.
