Mango Coconut Lime Scones

A very Summery combination with sweetened mango, shredded coconut and tangy lime in a buttery scone.
Since I've started my blog, I've wanted to create a recipe that has mango in it because it is one of my favorite fruits and fruit juices.
I want to do this combination because it is sweet and refreshing to cool you down because of the heat. Where I live for the last month the highs have been in the 80's to mid 90's with 1000% percent humidity.
Also my niece and nephews are ending their school year today, when I put up this post, and I wanted to create a treat that I know that they will like because they love mango, lime and coconut.
In my previous post of scones, Meyer Lemon Cranberry and Milk Chocolate & Orange Scones, I shaped them in the nontraditional way. This time I did more of the traditional in the shape to look like a biscuit.

Pizza Hand Pies

Everything that is delicious about a slice of pizza pie, like pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni, but in a portable pie in a buttery, flaky crust.
If you have seen my blog post for a while you can see that I love pizza. I can eat pizza for every meal of the day. I've been like that since I can remember. It has to be the perfect food.
These little guys have a yummy flaky crust that parmesan cheese in it, yes I know, to give it the hand pie layers of flavors with the crust then the center with pizza sauce, cheese and toppings. Choose topping or meat that you like.
The pizza hand pies are kid-approved and you can make a batch of these and freeze. That is what I did for my niece and nephews.

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Fries

 A sweet and salty chocolate chip cookie with bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate and nutty brown butter, giving you a caramelized sugar flavor, in a cookie fries form and dipped in chocolate.
These cookies are not your normal cookies. First, using brown butter instead of softened butter give the cookie a different flavor. They're are notes of butterscotch or a caramelized sugar.
Another thing that makes these cookies different is that they are cut into 'fries'. I have seen this trend going around Pinterest lately with a sugar cookie recipe.

I love me a good chocolate chip cookie, like I have said in different post, but I am always trying to find a way to make it tasty even better.
Since National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, May 15, is around the corner I had to this post.

Lemon Lime Cookie Bars

These cookie bars are inspired by a famous soft drink that is refreshing lemon and lime drink then topped with a yummy vanilla bean buttercream.
Spring is definitely in full swing right now where I live, the pollen is out, flowers are blooming and this coming week the highs are in the 80's.
These lemon-lime cookie bars can refresh you with every bite using fresh lemon zest and juice and lime zest and lime juice. 
Since Spring is here, citrus comes to mind and lemonade stand. Coming up on May 5th it is Lemonade Day to help empower the youth for the future also to learn to manage a budget and customer service.

Banana Split Loaf Cake

A classic ice cream dessert, banana split, in a dense strawberry and banana pound cake top with a slightly sweet chocolate ganache and cherries.
Banana splits are all American classic dessert that has been around for over 110 years and it was invented by a pharmacist, not joking, in Pennsylvania.

It has vanilla ice cream, chocolate ice cream and strawberry ice between a split banana topped with chocolate sauce, whipped cream and a cherry.
This has everything that is great about a banana split but you won't have to worry about the melting ice cream that can go all over the place.

Chubby Hubby Cookie Cups

Sweet and salty perfection in a bar form with a lot peanut butter, a lot chocolate, a handful pretzels and a touch malted milk.
I made Chubby Hubby cookies last year and it was my first major hit blog post. I was still new to the blogging world and didn't have that many hits, maybe one or two. After I did that post my blog grew majorly.
Chubby Hubby ice cream must be a very popular flavor because it took me forever to find it a local store of mine. Once I had my first taste, I found my new favorite ice cream.
Who wouldn't love it? It has vanilla malt ice cream, peanut-chocolate cover pretzels and a peanut-chocolate swirl.  Its so good.
