There is nothing more comforting than a cannoli with the mini chocolate chips (I was never a fan of the dried fruit version).

21. Pecan Pumpkin Pastries with Maple Glaze

I made this recipe while staying with that same, very generous, cousin that I mentioned before. Nothing in the pantry = being resourceful without buying too many new items to fill the cabinets. More importantly, having it still be very delicious.

22. Easy Strawberry Cheese Danish Pastry Bites

My sweet tooth sometimes gets ahold of me and won’t let up until I satisfy that craving for whatever particular sweet treat I’m craving at the moment.

The thing about his recipe though is that in the end you smashed it to serve. So even if there were cracks in it you didn’t have to worry about it or worrying about it collapsing on you. Ever since making that one, Johann has literally been asking for meringue non-stop.
