    eyedocbakes

    Let’s continue our international travel through the kitchen! Last week I shared a Norwegian pastry with you guys. In continuing with our travel plans, I bring you Pasteis de Nata! These are yummy Portuguese custard tarts that are dangerously easy to eat, since they’re bite sized and made with an easy homemade puff pastry! I actually have a little bit of history with this dessert! I first tried these about a decade ago when I visited Portugal. At the time, I was definitely not into baking, and so I just enjoyed eating a couple (or 10) of these daily while…

  • 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…

  • The Best Funfetti Marshmallow Cookies

    eyedocbakes

    What do you get when you already have a party in a cookie, AND you add marshmallows? These cookies. You get these cookies. You guys…these are sooooo good. These are soft and chewy funfetti cookies with an ooey-gooey surprise in the middle. The key to the chewy but flat situation is a little pan banging and a little cornstarch! The cornstarch gives them the soft and tender consistency, and the pan banging flattens them out and keeps the marshmallow at the same level as the cookie, instead of sticking out on top – plus it gives them the cute ripples.…

  • Blood Orange + Berry Tart

    Don’t you love a great citrus season? I’d been wanting to make a bright and wonderful tart, but didn’t have enough berries since it’s a bit too early. Welcome – citrus season! The color of this tart comes out so beautifully, you barely need anything to decorate it at all. I decided to add some candied oranges to enhance it a bit. I also usually love making a shortcrust for tarts, but I wasn’t in the mood to do too much baking in the oven – so I went with a cookie crust. This would be a great dessert to…
