MAKE AHEAD PEAR CRANBERRY & APPLE CRISP

This make ahead Pear Cranberry apple Apple Crisp recipe makes it easy to impress guests. It's a beautiful, delicious dessert that can be made for a crowd or in individual ramekins.

I don’t know about you, but any dessert that can be made ahead of time, and still served hot and bubbly is a winner in my book. That’s the case with this delicious make ahead Pear Cranberry and Apple Crisp.¬†While an apple crisp might seem rather ordinary, this one is elevated with the addition of pear and fresh cranberries. The medley of fruits give depth of flavor and really tantalize the taste buds with a little something sweet and a little something tangy. I’m all about balance and this dessert has precisely that.

Well, friends. I tried but I simply couldn’t wait any longer to share my Christmas home tour.

ORANGE CREAMSICLE ROLLS

These homemade Orange Creamsicle Rolls are a sweet breakfast or brunch treat for a crowd. Made with whole wheat flour in a bread machine, they're soft and sweet and delicious.

There was a time in my life during which I believed that nothing could top a gooey homemade cinnamon roll loaded with cream cheese icing. I developed a bread machine recipe for those using whole wheat flour and I don’t mind telling you that it’s pretty amazing. But a year or so ago, a new bakery opened here in Huntsville and I quickly became a huge fan of their orange creamsicle rolls. In my very first bite, I discovered the most delicious combination of orange and coconut rolled into a sweet dough. The Orange Creamsicle Rolls I’m sharing with you today represent my best attempt to replicate (and maybe even elevate) the bakery version I love so much.
