Instant Pot® Rice Pudding

This rice pudding recipe couldn't be easier when made in your Instant Pot® or other multi-functional pressure cooker. Raisins add sweetness and texture.

Tahini-Chocolate Chip Cookies

With crispy edges, a chewy center, and the addition of tahini these cookies have a subtle nutty flavor. Add chopped nuts for that extra crunch.

A creamy and rich dessert that is an elegant finish to a nice meal.

Mini hand pies filled with a buttery apple-cinnamon mixture and topped with a sweet powdered sugar glaze. They bake in less than 10 minutes in an air fryer.

Glazed Pumpkin Donuts

Pumpkin + donuts = awesome! These cake donuts are baked and then glazed lightly or covered in cinnamon-sugar.

EVOO Sugar Cookies

Rating: 4.6 stars
Extra-virgin olive oil replaces butter in a simple sugar cookie recipe. The result is a rich, dense cookie to sink your teeth into. These are great for dunking in your tea.

Cherry Cheesecake Brownies

Rating: 4.11 stars
The delicious combination of chocolate and cherry cheesecake swirled up into a brownie that your family and friends will love, and they can be made gluten-free to boot! Serve them warm or cold and store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Apple Pie with Cheese, Please

Rating: 4.67 stars
This apple pie has Cheddar cheese baked right inside! Cheddar lines the bottom of the crust and perfectly harmonizes with the apples. Just like you'd find flatbread with goat cheese and honey, the cheese baked right in with the apples provides a buttery and melty texture.

Quick Keto Chocolate Mousse

Rating: 4.79 stars
When a sweet craving hits, you'll have this chocolate mousse ready in no time. No need to pre-whip the heavy cream - just throw everything into a bowl and mix! Use any keto-friendly granular sweetener that measures like sugar. I prefer the powdered version of Swerve®, since it dissolves better. Adjust cocoa powder and sweetener amounts to suit your tastes. This is quite rich, so you don't need a lot to feel satisfied.

Blueberry Upside-Down Mini Cakes

Rating: 4.63 stars
A nice way to use up some leftover blueberries.

Awesome Apple Pie Cookies

Rating: 4.27 stars
These mini-apple pies are a sure hit and a perfect use for apples in the fall. They look great on a cookie plate and taste great! If any apple mixture remains, it can be served warm over vanilla ice cream!
