Apricot Pear Crostata

Apricot Pear Crostata

When summer rolls around, and the supermarkets are full of gorgeous summer fruits, I buy them all! I recently got into making crostatas at home, and there is no better way to use up some of that summer fruit that in this quick and delicious apricot pear crostata. A crostata is basically a free form Italian pie, similar to a Galette. What I love about crostatas is that they let the fruit shine. The fruit is lightly sweetened and flavored and encased in a flaky pastry.

Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting

Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting

This fluffy cream cheese frosting is made using no butter. It's just a handful of ingredients and it takes a few minutes to whisk together. You won't see anyone wiping the frosting off or pushing it aside. It's light and delicious! I love adding some fresh lemon zest to brighten it up. This frosting goes great on vanilla cupcakes, carrot cupcakes and even chocolate cupcakes...

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Is it just me, or does a cookie, especially a peanut butter laced chocolate chip cookie, taste better out of a skillet? I've always just made normal cookies, or cookie bars, but I recently got into making skillet cookies, and this chocolate skillet cookie is the real deal. I tried so many different variations until I found the gooiest of them all. And I'm happy to report this ticks all the boxes. It has crispy edges, a gooey center, a hint of peanut butter and whole lot of chocolate.
