Before we get into holiday baking this year, we wanted to post one more savoury recipe — pierogi. This has been a long requested recipe, so we are happy to finally share it with you! Of course we are biased when we say nothing beats homemade, but you will absolutely taste the difference compared to store bought.
The dough itself is very straightforward, and also naturally dairy free and vegan. No egg in the dough makes them traditional and also lends itself to a soft and delicate bite. You can create any number of fillings to put inside, whether you prefer potato and onion, potato and cheese, mushroom and sauerkraut, or one of many sweeter variations with fruit like blueberries.
Prep: 1 to 2 hours
Cook time: 3-5 minutes
Yield: 36-40 pierogi (using a 3" round cutter)

This recipe needs to come with a warning, because these chicken tenders are so delicious you don't even need to eat them with a sauce (although they only get better once you start dipping them!)
These are fantastic for weeknight meals, since they only take half an hour from start to finish. We've made them just to dip in sauce (BBQ is our favourite), for chicken tacos with a fresh mango jicama slaw, and even for simple salads.
Prep: 5-10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Yield: 12-16 chicken tenders
Light and airy, angel food cake could possibly be one of the most perfect simple cakes. Angel food is also a naturally dairy-free cake, handy for when you need a recipe that can accommodate other allergens.
This recipe is nothing like the dry and flavourless version of angel food cake you'll find sitting at the store. Adding cocoa to make it chocolate is a bonus and, if you've never made an angel food cake before, then we suggest you try it now! It's sweetness is perfectly subtle, and it's moist like cake should be.
You can serve up a slice and eat it plain, or you can garnish with berries, chocolate shavings, whipped cream, or chocolate or caramel sauce.
Prep: 30 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Yield: 1 cake (6-8 servings)
Love chocolate? Participating in a holiday cookie exchange? Looking for an easy recipe to make with the kids? If you answered yes to any of those questions, these are the cookies you'll want to make right now!
Chewy, fudgy, super chocolatey — chocolate crinkles are an absolutely irresistible treat you'll want to keep all for yourself, but so easy to make that you won't mind sharing. These are great for baking with the kids, who are sure to be delighted and impressed by the appearance they take on as they bake.
Prep: 15 minutes (plus 4 hours resting time)
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Yield: 24 cookies
The leaves have changed, the air is crisp, it's October and that marks the official beginning of pumpkin flavoured everything until winter rolls in.
While we've made some different variations of pumpkin desserts in the past, this year we've made pumpkin pie bars, and we're not at all disappointed. If you were put in charge of bringing dessert for Thanksgiving, these are sure to be a hit. (Did we mention you also don't have to fuss around with rolling out pie dough?)
These bars are crunchy with a silky soft filling, and they're really the pumpkin pie you never knew you wanted. Pass the whipped cream!
