Chocolate Chip Applesauce Bundt Cake

Enjoy a piece of this slightly spicy cake on a chilly day with a warm cup of black tea (the maltiness of which will balance the sweetness and creaminess of the cake).

Peanut Butter Snickerdoodles

Any warm beverage will go well with these cookies on a cold winter afternoon. Settle in with a plate of snickerdoodles and a cup of coffee or tea, hot chocolate or warm cider.

Marzipan Snowballs

If you’ve never worked with marzipan (almond candy) before, these cookies are the perfect introduction! Their festive appearance is perfect for holiday cookie plates, and their buttery almond flavor is such a treat. In fact, it might be worth making a double batch—they’re sure to disappear quickly!

Tangerine Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

These oatmeal cookies have a seasonal twist, combining tangy tangerines and jewel-like cranberries with a buttery, chewy oatmeal dough.

Chocolate Blood Orange Parfaits

Chocolate-orange flourless cookies atop sweetened Greek yogurt dazzle the taste buds while beautiful blood oranges add extra eye appeal. 

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.
