Traditionally served on the Jewish holiday Purim, these Hamantaschen cookies are made of a delicate cookie dough and are filled with anything from poppy seed, nut, or date filling to chocolate spread or jam.

Apple Crumble

Perfect Apple Crumble | prettysimplesweet.com

Sweet and tender apples topped with a crispy, crumbly, nutty streusel. The smell as it bakes is divine! As much as I love day trips, I simply have no luck with them. It usually starts out on the right foot, but at some point takes an unpleasant turn. Yesterday, it didn’t even start right as […]

Crispy, soft and fluffy homemade waffles | prettysimplesweet.com

A quick and easy recipe for tender waffles that are soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. If I were to make a list of kitchen products that are barely ever used, I would guess that a waffle iron is pretty high up there. Honestly, how often do you actually make waffles? I […]
