These cookies are delicious! Super soft and tons of honey and ginger flavor (if made with honey). However, when I think of gingersnaps - I think of the traditional crisp cookie. I personally prefer a soft cookie, so I was excited to find those flavors in a soft cookie instead.

Perfect candied apples just like from the fair! I used wilton icing red coloring to give them a deep red flavor without having to add a lot of food coloring.

Soaking the cake in eggnog is a key step. It gives the cake so much eggnog flavor and makes it more like a tres leche! Loved it!

This was definitely a new way of making banana bread for me with the maple syrup. I wish I could have tasted the maple flavor more and would personally add a splash of maple extract next time. It's easy to over cook, so be careful!

I really liked the combination of orange and sweet potato and I wasn't sure I would. I added a little zest to the top of my icing for an added orange kick.

A twist on the traditional pecan pie bar flavors. I loved the addition of brandy.
