Pearls + Girls Fan Favorites

Hi, all!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I must admit, I’m stressing a bit.  I’m not complaining (ok, maybe I am just a teensy bit), but as a person who doesn’t thrive on change, these last few weeks have hit me like a ton of bricks.  Nothing a few drinks, some yoga and a marathon of Downton Abbey episodes won’t cure though (at least, that’s what I keep telling myself). 🙂  So to tide you over until I get back to my blogging + baking self, here’s a round up of my most popular recipes over the past (almost) year!  I love to hear from my followers, so if you’ve made any of these recipes (or plan to in the near future) I’d love to hear about it!  Enjoy! 🙂

Caramel Glazed Coconut Carrot Cake ~ Pearls + Girls

This cake was shared over 100x with over 10,000 views on Facebook! 🙂

I’m not a huge coconut fan, but in THIS cake, it really hit all the right notes.

Add some cream cheese frosting and gooey caramel sauce…..seriously,

how can you go wrong with that?!?!  Get the recipe here

S'more Cookiewiches ~ Pearls + Girls

 These delightful treats can be shared around a campfire….or not!

Bake the cookies and let everyone roast their own marshmallows

or use marshmallow fluff, it’s up to you!  Get the recipe here

Pecan Coffee Cake ~ made with whole wheat flour and flaxseeds ~ Pearls + Girls

At our house, a special weekend breakfast or brunch is not complete without coffee cake!

This version is made with whole grains and flaxseeds, so even though it’s still a naughty treat,

I feel a little less guilty having a second slice!  Get the recipe here

My Favorite Fudgy Brownies ~ Pearls + Girls

These fudgy brownies are hands down my family’s favorite treat.

This made from scratch recipe has a hint of espresso powder to bring out the chocolate flavor.

Lazy Lemon Pie ~ Pearls + Girls

If you are a lemon fan, this is the treat for you!  The title isn’t deceiving,

any lazy baker could whip this pie together in a jiffy.

Who says quick can’t be delicious, too?!?!

Bacon Cheddar Scallion Drop Biscuits ~ Pearls + Girls

I love biscuits, but the rolling and cutting process at breakfast is a bit time consuming

when I’ve got a hungry crowd to feed ASAP.  These drop biscuits are made in the food processor,

no rolling or cutting required!  Get the recipe here

Buckeye Cheesecake ~ Pearls + Girls

 I may be a slight chocoholic, but my peanut butter obsession runs a close second!

This dessert fulfills both indulgences!  Cheesecake takes awhile to bake,

but it’s worth the time for a dessert that looks as impressive as THIS!  Get the recipe here

Mini PB IceBox Pies ~ Pearls + Girls

Peanut Butter?  Did you say peanut butter?  Yep, and this one is a no bake recipe,

perfect for entertaining family and friends.

After all, who doesn’t like to eat their own individual pie?  Get the recipe here

Almond Toffee Chocolate Chunk Cookies ~ Pearls + Girls

I am not a gluten free convert, but I have done some exploring with gluten free baking.

These cookies have a fabulous crunch.  Not to mention chocolate and toffee….yeah,

I wish I had a couple to munch on right now!  Get the recipe here

Blueberry Pistachio Muffisn {Gluten Free} ~ Pearls + Girls

Coconut flour is a relatively new baking ingredient for me,

but it was definitely a winner in this muffin recipe!

The flavors and colors would make these a stunner on your brunch buffet!
