Happy weekend to you!

I hope that you have the most wonderful couple of days! I’d love to know what you are making this weekend, especially if you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day; I want to make a batch of shamrock-shaped cut-out sugar cookies.

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Homemade Coconut Cream Pie – This homemade coconut cream pie recipe is a coconut lover’s dream come true. From a graham cracker and toasted coconut crust to a creamy coconut custard pie filling and a whipped cream topping, this pie is classic, timeless, and sensational.

Zeppole (Italian Doughnuts) – Zeppole are sweet Italian doughnut holes that are pillowy soft on the inside and absolutely irresistible when tossed with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. A favorite family recipe, these are simple and quick to make; everyone will be begging for more!
