Well, you make a cherry pie, pinwheels and can the rest.  I learned from our trip to the strawberry farm that you can easily waste fruit if you have too much and don’t handle it fast enough.

Homemade Biscoff Cookies

One night, at the end of a church event, someone started passing out packages of candy and cookies. I didn’t recognize any of the brands, and like an idiot I took three random packages.

One was a raspberry cream filled chocolates, and the second one was orange cream filled chocolates. They were awful. Just awful. They tasted fake and they gave me a migraine. (Maybe it was something in the filling?)

So by the time I got to the third package I was pretty scared. I looked at the label and was surprised to see that it contained mostly good ingredients. No high-fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, or MSG. I was thinking okay, so far so good. But I was still skeptical and not ready to dive into the cookies. After the last two times I had tried something new…well, you’d be nervous too!

I asked my mother what biscoff was just a yummy, buttery cookie that people typically eat with a cup of coffee.

The next morning I tried the cookies with my coffee. <—– Best decision ever.

It is soooo good! Not too sweet and goes really well with coffee. (Biscuit + Coffee = Biscoff… You’re Welcome! 😉 )

Biscoff has an amazing buttery flavor and I decided that morning that I couldn’t live without biscoff ever again.

What happened after that? I had biscoff with my coffee every morning for about three days. Then it ran out.

How to Make Southern Beignets

If you have liked me on Facebook then you know that I have been looking forward to cool weather for weeks now. You would also know that thew main reason I wanted fall to be here so bad is for these beignets. I don’t know about you, but I love beignets. Like, a lot. And a lot of people ask me what the heck they are when I start to talk about them. 😯 WHAT!? So if you don’t know what they are already, they are essentially the better version of a doughnut that has been cut into a square, fried, and topped with powdered sugar. You also have to have a good cup of cafe au leit to go with it.
