• Fall Harvest Cobbler

    eyedocbakes

    Grapes and Pomegranates! The underdogs of Fall fruits, but the stars of this Cobbler! I had been meaning to make a cobbler all summer, but just ran out of time. And by the time I got around to it, well, it was September, and I couldn’t find any fresh peaches or cherries that didn’t cost an astronomical amount. If you’ve been following me for a bit now, you know I LOVE my apple and pumpkin desserts. However, I wanted to go in a different direction with this recipe, and shine a light on some fruits that usually look great as…

  • Grilled Peaches with Brown Butter Streusel

    If you love Fall, but you’re still soaking in some of those summer vibes, this is the easy peasy dessert you should make this week! I was able to get my hands on some end of summer peaches! I wanted regular peaches, but they had white peaches, so why not? This dessert works with either. And you know  that streusel you usually reserve for blueberry muffins, or my carrot cake? I added brown butter to it, and it has this great nutty, buttery cinammony flavor that is amaaaazing! Top with some fresh whipped cream and pomegranate arils/berries, and you’re all…

  • Lemon Meringue Tart

    Could you tell yet that tarts are my favorite dessert? Well, if not, here is another one to prove it! A classic lemon meringue pie…but in a tart… with a sweet shortcrust pastry shell, a tart lemon curd, and a perfectly sweet and toasted meringue. Served cold, this is a fantastic dessert for a hot summer day, bursting with lemon-y freshness. The great thing is you can do so much with the leftover lemon curd too. I like to use it on top of pancakes or waffles for breakfast, fill cupcakes with it, or even just as it’s own dessert…

  • Cherry Shortcakes

    eyedocbakes

      You know one of the best things about summer? Stone Fruits! What is a stone fruit? It’s basically any fruit that has a fleshy pulp on the outside, and a single shell, that surrounds a seed, on the inside. So, cherries (!), peaches, plums, etc. I often have a hard time deciding what my favorite baking season is. On the one hand, there’s summer – which gives us alllll the cherries, and berries, and stone fruits, and just everything amazing. Then, there’s Fall, which, I mean, is basically a food blogger’s dream. It’s not too hot outside so you…
