Sweet Potato Chocolate Truffles

A rich chocolate guilt-free treat!  It’s a great way to make a dessert with extra CSA sweet potatoes. Vegan, Gluten free, and no added sugar! This recipe was entered in our We ♥ Local Sweet Potato recipe contest by Rebecca Mulheron.

Lemon Cheesecake Bites

Enjoy pure lemony bliss with these light, bite-size cheesecakes. You can make these ahead, and store the cheesecakes, without the marmalade topping, in the freezer in an airtight container for up to three months. To serve, defrost in the refrigerator for about 4 hours, and top with marmalade. 

Quinoa Crispy Treats

High in protein and fiber, these crunchy, quinoa crispy treats are the perfect dessert to kick off the New Year! 

Salted Toffee Chocolate Bars

Quick, easy and irresistible, these bars are a perfect holiday treat or DIY gift. This salty-sweet, crispy and chewy treat will disappear quickly, no matter what you do! Make a double batch and wrap half of these bars in a decorative box as a quick gift for party hosts, or for your office “secret Santa.” 

Italian Pear Cake

This moist fruit-forward cake really requires no frosting, but you could add a decorative sprinkling of powdered sugar to the top before you serve with dark, rich demitasse cups of espresso.

Cranberry Tart with Pecan Crust

Baking this rich yet tart dessert in a spring-form pan makes it easy to create a show-stopping presentation for your holiday finale. Use your very best cake plate, and decorate with candied chestnuts and twists of lemon peel around the base of the tart.

Honey Whipped Cream

Treat yourself (and your guests), with this unique twist on whipped cream! Delicious on any pie, cake or crumble. If you don’t have an electric mixer, you can do this by hand with a whisk, but be warned it will take quite a bit of muscle and time to achieve nice, soft peaks. 

Cranberry Apple Crumble

Give this sweet, seasonal recipe a try. The fresh cranberries make this crumble pleasantly tart and the oats add a nice crunchy bite. Enjoy with your favorite non-dairy vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup. 

Apricot Kolacky

A short list of ingredients is all you need to create these beautiful, irresistible gems. Serve a plateful of these delicious treats with a tall glass of iced tea or a hot espresso for a tasty treat. While apricot jam is a traditional filling, you can also use blueberry or strawberry compote or apple pie filling.
