Summer’s over. I’ve finally accepted it. But I’m not quite ready to let go.
You see, summer comes with wonderful desserts. And ice cream. Have I mentioned ice cream?
This past week, I made a fantastic poke cake. It was so delicious. And the photos were a complete #epicfail. So instead of hanging my head in shame, I’m going to share my favorites with you from this past summer!
Okay, at the top of my list is this salted peanut butter caramel ganache pie. I swear, the angels sang when I took a bite, and I think they’re still humming slightly out there. If you make one pie in the next few weeks, make it this one.
And since you know I can resist nothing peanut, these Baby Ruth brookies were a total triumph, and a long time coming. After years of aching to bake with Baby Ruth and not getting it done, these were well worth the wait.
Snowballs are my favorite cookie, and this pink lemonade version screamed summer. I had to bake another batch just last week because I was in denial. But fear not: the snowball transitions perfectly to winter (duh), so you’ll be seeing more of those right here soon!
I made a lot of ice cream this summer, but this cheesecake brownie chunk was by far the winner. I could not stop eating it until it was all gone. I didn’t even try to give it away. And since it’s no-churn, it’s a snap to make!
Finally, I paid tribute to the best summer fruit ever, the white nectarine, in this upside-down cake. No reason pineapple has to have all the love! White nectarines are one of the best parts of summer, and they deserve to be made into dessert.
I’ll see you next week with fantastic recipes and (I’m hoping) pictures that don’t make me cringe. Now I’m off to eat a non-photogenic poke cake straight outta the pan. Wish me luck, friends!
