Berry Pie Milkshakes

One of my favorite summer desserts is a classic berry pie. I usually go for a combination of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, and I love snacking on a warm slice topped with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream. So why not take that exact thing, but transform it into a milkshake? Yep, a milkshake!!

All it takes is one slice of berry pie or two berry hand pies, some vanilla ice cream, some milk or almond milk, and a blender. Before you know it, you’ll have a delicious drink that tastes like berry pie fresh out of the oven, but in a cold and refreshing way, perfect for those hot summer days.

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Does anyone else love the combination of salty and sweet as much as me? These cookies are the perfect way to satisfy all of your salty and sweet cravings at the same time. A delicious chocolate cookie is met with a luscious salted caramel sauce and topped with a pretzel for an added salty crunch. And that’s not even mentioning that the cookie has the added bonus of chocolate chips!

Even though these cookies have several elements to them, they’re pretty simple and come together rather quickly. You’ll start out by making the salted caramel. Don’t let the words “salted caramel” dissuade you. This caramel recipe only takes four ingredients, and as long as you have your ingredients ready to go and you keep a close eye on your caramel’s color, you’ll end up with a delicious sauce! Trust me, you’ve got this. Plus, the next best thing? Any leftover caramel sauce can be stored in the fridge for all of your snacking/dipping/drenching needs.

Lady and the Tramp

A love of baking and Disney movies combined? What’s better than that? Join me as I bake my way through one Disney movie at a time! Follow along at #marisabakesdisney 🎥

Disney’s Lady and the Tramp was released in theaters on June 22, 1955, and audiences were introduced to Lady, Tramp, and one of the most iconic Disney scenes of all time. 🍝

Did you know that the opening scene where Jim Dear puts Lady in a hat box to give to Darling was based on something that Walt had done for his wife, Lillian?

I chose to bring this classic movie to life with a little inspiration from it’s most iconic Bella Notte scene. I made a plate of spaghetti just like in the movie…except in pie form, raspberry pie that is.
