Heaps of Halloween candy after tonight? Don’t just throw it in the freezer or stash it on the highest pantry shelf and slowly dole it out. Or (gasp!) throw it in the trash when the kids aren’t looking. Bake with it! We’ve got two different takes on a blondie: one for fruity candy and one for chocolate/caramel candy.
Wrapping up our ode to strawberries this month, let’s not forget the savory side of this berry. A flaky, buttery crust full of freshly ground black pepper encases a creamy filling of spinach and goat cheese. Topped with fresh strawberries to highlight the simple perfection that is a ripe strawberry, and then drizzled with a balsamic vinegar glaze.
It’s all things strawberry this month, but if you don’t have access to fresh strawberries, don’t fret. Delectable strawberry treats can still be had with these cookies that utilize freeze dried strawberries and strawberry jam.
