Crinkle Dessert

With mascarpone, orange and pistachio


  • 1 package phyllo dough (I usually find it in the frozen section by the pie crust), defrosted according to package instructions 
  • 1 stick of butter, melted 
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • ½ cup mascarpone cheese
  • Zest of 1 small orange, with 1 teaspoon reserved 


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large baking dish of your choice, begin to fold to crinkle your phyllo dough and place it into the baking dish. 

I used an accordion type of fold to crinkle the pastry into my baking vessel.

Step 2: Once the oven is preheated, bake the pastry for 10 minutes. 

When 10 minutes is up, remove from the oven, and pour the melted butter over the top as evenly as possible. 

Return to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. 

Time to make the custard! 

Step 3: In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, mascarpone and orange zest together. Make sure you whisk well to ensure no clumps of mascarpone remain. 

Set aside until the phyllo is out of the oven. 

Step 4: When the phyllo has finished the second round of 10 minutes, remove from the oven and pour the custard mixture evenly over the top. 

Return to the oven to bake for an additional 30 minutes. 

Step 5: Remove from the oven and drizzle the honey syrup over the top of the finished dessert. 


Garnish Ingredients

  • ½ cup toasted and chopped pistachios  
  • Honey syrup (recipe below)
  • Reserved teaspoon of orange zest 

Honey Syrup Ingredients and Instructions

  • 1/3 cup of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of HOT water

Mix together well. Allow to cool. Drizzle away!

This cheffed-up version of the TikTok viral crinkle dessert is RIDICULOUSLY tasty and easy to make. That’s my kind of baking! 

Strawberry Crunch Pie

With shortbread crust


  • 1 package phyllo dough (I usually find it in the frozen section by the pie crust), defrosted according to package instructions 
  • 1 stick of butter, melted 
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • ½ cup mascarpone cheese
  • Zest of 1 small orange, with 1 teaspoon reserved 

From strawberry crunch cakes to strawberry crunch cookies, this crunch topping has been haunting my tastebuds for WEEKS. 

It looks like SUCH a fussy little affair, but it’s really easy to fancy it up or down, and you can use any flavor of Jello and pudding to create all sorts of fun-flavor combos! 

Strawberry Crunch Topping Ingredients

  • 1 package strawberry Jello
  • 1 package vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • ½ cup flour

Strawberry Crunch Topping Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, add strawberry Jello mix, ¼ cup of the flour and half of the melted butter. 

Mix together well until you reach a wet-sand consistency. 

Step 2: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread jello mixture out evenly. Repeat the process with vanilla pudding mix. 

Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, or until barely browned. 

Step 3: Remove from the oven once done baking and allow to cool completely before attempting to crumble the crunch mixtures. 

Crumble the two mixes together and store in an airtight container. This will keep in the fridge for up to a month. It’s absolutely delicious on ice cream, cupcakes and this RIDICULOUSLY rich strawberry and cream pie!

No Bake S’mores Bars

FULL DISCLOSURE: I am a SHAMELESS s’mores lover. It is one of my love languages and I plan on absolutely CRUSHING this pan of treats! Just saying. 


  • 2 bags of marshmallows (one bag of regular size, one bag of mini)
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 cup roughly crushed graham crackers
  • 1 large bar of dark chocolate, roughly chopped 
  • 1 large bar of milk chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste 
  • 1 large box Golden Graham-type cereal
  • Flaky Sea Salt for finishing


Step 1: Begin to melt the butter in a small sauté pan over medium-low heat. 

Allow butter to come to a slow simmer, and continue simmering, stirring the butter the entire time to keep it moving. 

Once it is melted, the butter will begin to foam and sizzle around the edges, but it will calm shortly. 

In about 5-8 minutes, the butter will turn golden brown. Some foam will subside and the milk solids at the bottom of the pan will be toasty brown. 

It will smell SO very buttery and nutty … you want every bit of it. 

Please don’t filter it. It’s so good, I promise!

Step 2: Add brown butter and ALL those delicious bits to a large stockpot, keep the heat on medium, and start melting those marshmallows! 

Add the bag of regular-sized marshmallows, along with half of the bag of minis and melt, stirring often and monitoring to ensure they don’t burn. 

Stir in the vanilla bean paste. 

Step 3: Once marshmallows are fully melted, add the cereal and crushed graham crackers, and stir well to coat them in the melted marshmallowy goodness. 

Remove from the heat.

Step 4: Stir in all the goodies – the chopped chocolate, the remainder of the mini marshmallows and the crushed graham crackers. 

Press mixture into a large baking vessel, sprinkle with flaky sea salt and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares of preferred size, and store in an airtight container.
