This pretty Irish Coffee glass is one of the four I won from Michael Lee at Designs by Gollum…the hostess of Foodie Friday..
Thank you, ML! I’ll be sure to think of your when I fill it with my virgin Irish Coffee..Mike will have his tainted with the devil Irish whiskey..:)
Here are a few desserts that lend themselves to the ♣ season.
If you have a few pears, a frozen puff pastry and some preserves you can make this easy dessert…
Slice your pears and toss in some sugar and cinnamon.
Arrange in a tart pan, and brush with some preserves, I used mango..
The next is an Apricot Cream Coffee Cake…
St. Patapricot Cake :)
Here is the recipe, from Land O Lakes Country Heritage.
Coffee Cake Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 LAND O LAKES™ All-Natural Farm-Fresh Eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 LAND O LAKES™ All-Natural Farm-Fresh Egg
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
1 (12-ounce) jar apricot preserves
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon juice
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour bottom and sides of 10-inch springform pan. Set aside.
Combine all coffee cake ingredients in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Spread batter on bottom and 2 inches up sides of prepared pan.
Combine all filling ingredients except apricot preserves in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Spread evenly over batter in pan. Spoon preserves evenly over filling.
Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool 20 minutes. Loosen sides of cake from pan by running knife around inside of pan; remove sides of pan.
Meanwhile, stir together powdered sugar and enough lemon juice for desired drizzling consistency in small bowl. Drizzle over warm coffee cake. Serve warm or cold; store refrigerated.
That’s it for tonight..
