Relax and enjoy your holidays with these sweet, decadent shortbread recipes that come together in...
This elegant torte combines cherries, almonds and smooth white chocolate custard. Make the components ahead of time so it's just a matter of quick assembly before serving.
Make your own delectable custardy tarts instead of buying them. We've subbed in the very Canadian ingredient maple syrup for the more common corn syrup. Plus, we've included variations on the classic, with chocolate and pecans instead of raisins.
Flaky turnovers with a tart cherry and rich ricotta filling are a welcome addition to any table. Look for butter puff pastry in the freezer section of your grocery store and thaw in the refrigerator overnight. For an extra layer of crunch, sprinkle 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts or sliced almonds onto the turnovers before baking.
Classic cheesecake is topped with a chunky sour cherry topping in this dessert favourite. The time it takes to bake on low heat helps keep the filling silky smooth. Cheesecake is easiest to cut when cold, so allow ample refrigerating time before serving.
Simple ice cream sandwiches shaped like brilliant blue beetles will surprise their predators with a mint chocolate filling. Cut out small ovals from the scraps of the base to make mini sandwiches using extra ice cream.
Pretty little no-bake ladybugs are almost too cute to eat. Be sure to have many helping hands to decorate these bugs, since the coating chocolate sets quickly. Remelt it in the microwave as needed.
Fluttering dragonflies will catch everyone's eyes with their colourful sparkle and brilliant shades. Insert lollipop sticks into a few cookies before chilling them to make cookie pops.
