Dulce de Leche Brownies

Sweetened condensed milk! I turn this pantry staple into a decadent caramel and spread it over top of the brownies before they bake, creating an even more luscious dessert.

Hungarian Krémes

Krémes are made up of layers of pure deliciousness and incredible textures. You have pressed sheets of crisp, golden puff pastry with a hefty amount of decadent vanilla custard sandwiched in between.

We’ve all seen the cases filled with sad fruit tarts, stale cupcakes and cakes that are a bit past their prime. I decided to give a classic custard fruit tart a face lift and turn it into the boujee french dessert called mille-feuille (pronounced meal foyyy, for all of the non-French speakers like myself).

S’mores Macarons

Olivia is back in the kitchen to turn the tables on me, yet again! Today I’m tackling a French patisserie classic—macarons. We layer crunchy meringue cookies with soft marshmallow fluff and lightly bitter chocolate ganache. You’ll want some more of these s’mores macarons!!

These cookies use Sarah Kieffer’s pan banging technique to create ripples throughout the cookie, creating and gooey center and crisp, buttery edges. Get ready for a cookie bigger than the size of your face!
