Bread pudding… a perfect comfort food as well as a perfect dessert. It can be left plain or you can add a fruit/fruits. It can be topped with a warm bourbon sauce, a chocolate sauce, caramel, crème anglaise or whipped cream, really whatever your heart desires (no one is counting calories here). Have fun with it and make it your own. Your family and friends will love you for this one!

Baking In The Queen’s Kitchen: Alfajores

Alfajores are a traditional Argentinean dessert. They’re light and literally melt in your mouth. They are usually filled with dulce de leche but you can fill them with your favorite butter cream frosting and roll them in sprinkles, less traditional but way more fun!

This is a great Christmas cookie recipe but can be used for any special occasion in your life. I’ve done balloons for birthdays, wedding and baby showers and graduation caps.  I’ve also done some fun cookies like my California themed cookies and Blackhawks hockey jerseys when they went to the Stanley Cup. Let your imagination run wild. Your family and friends will love them!
