• 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…

  • 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…

  • Happy Pi Day – Copycat Momofuku Milk Bar Pie

    eyedocbakes

      I said I would do it – and here it is – Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar Pie! A few weeks back I attempted her Birthday Cake-with success luckily (phew!). This time I stuck pretty close to her recipe, though I did leave off a couple things I didn’t have at home already – and it turned out just right! This pie is pretty similar to a Southern Chess Pie. Again, be warned this is a very sweet dessert – so make it if you have a big sweet tooth or for friends who do! What You’ll Need. . .…

    “Pie makes everybody happy” Squeezing the last bits of summer out with this key lime pie – kinda literally. The only key limes I could find were so tiny I had to squeeze a ton of them to get my key lime juice! But it was totally worth it! This pie is perfect part tart and sweet – you won’t regret making it this weekend! Crust 2.5 cups graham cracker crumbs 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup melted butter Preheat oven to 350F. Chop graham crackers in food processor until you get smooth crumbs. Add the brown sugar and continue to process…

      “Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like” -Mark Twain Well that sure is some pleasant advice! What if I like eating pie? Can I eat all the pie?? The perfect solution – bake mini galettes, throw in some fruit, and it’s kinda healthy too, right? 🙂 What is a galette? This is a French term for, usually, a flat, round, flaky pastry, often made of pie crust, but baked without a pie pan. It can be savory or sweet – and this one is definitely sweet! This galette recipe includes loquats, which…

      “Keep calm…it’s almost summer.” Yes! What kind of desserts make you think of summer? I’ll tell ya one of mine is definitely Key Lime Pie. So Key Lime Pie originates from none other than Key West, Florida. It’s a bit embarrassing but I had never actually tried the pie until I went to Key West and ordered it…and let me tell you, though nothing compares to the original, this recipe comes preeeetty close! It got rave reviews from family and friends – so I hope you like it! Since I like to make mini things, and hadn’t used my tart…
