Okay dear readers, file this one under Allyson’s favorite recipes.
I have made this coffee cake three times in the past three days (yes, that’s right: one per day) and have regretted not one single moment of it. There is just something about a good cherry-almond combo that makes my heart sinnng! Plus, it’s an easy cake to throw together since it calls for dried cherries, and not those delicious juicy ones with the pesky pits.
And, this coffee cake does not require coffee to make it shine (do any, really?), it stands up quite nicely on its own.
So what are you waiting for? Get in your kitchen and whip up what I consider to be the best coffee cake I have ever made.
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do… and if you happen to not like it, please don’t hesitate to send me the leftovers! ;) nom nom nom
These cookies are as simple to make as they are beautiful.
Use any flavor of preserves you’d like in these…. I happen to really love the amber glow of the apricot preserves. A thicker jam or fruit preserve is key to having a uniform color puddle in your cookies. Sprinkle with a touch of confectioners sugar for the ultimate eye-popper.
Okay folks… they may not look like regular chocolate chip cookies… but you gotta trust me on these. They are seriously addicting little bites of awesomeness.
Since I first started eating gluten free, I have been trying to create a replica of my all time favorite vegan chocolate chip cookie recipe. Well, I finally have come very very close! But, I wanted to pause for a moment, and celebrate this little gem that I found along the way.
The cookies themselves are a little unorthodox, as they are made with buckwheat flour and almond flour… but the taste is quite remarkable. I have made these four times in the last week… which proves how much my son and husband enjoyed them. They loved them.
Not bad for my first attempt at using buckwheat flour– which by the way, is my new BFF. <3
