Seasonal Desserts

Skip the pie this year.

One of my favorite things about the holidays is being introduced to something new on the menu. There are, of course, staples I look forward to, but it’s also fun to transform classic flavors into surprising sweets. In each of these recipes, I present a creative take on seasonal desserts without losing the comfort-food appeal of their ingredients.

Crust is hands down my favorite part of any pie, and these hand pies present the ideal crust-to-filling ratio.

I have these homemade marshmallows on hand for every party, as they can brighten up any wintry beverage.
