Hey friends! I’ve totally failed at keeping up while we’re home visiting family this week, but this is time I’ll never get back so we’re going to take the rest of the week of to enjoy it. I did want to at least say Happy Thanksgiving, and be sure to check back tomorrow evening because I’ve already written out alllllll of the my favorite Black Friday deals to hit up! Mama’s gotta get her shopping on, you know what I mean?! Except I’m totally not die hard enough for standing in lines, so I’ll have links to my favorites for you to click and shop right at home.
Until then, sending you lots of love and thanks to you as our blog family, and of course, there would need to be a turkey ice cream cake to mark the occasion. Sugar is in the name after all, ha! xox
Like most people, one of my favorite things about the holiday season is all of the food. In particular, I,Alyssa, am a sucker for a good dessert! The problem is, by the time dessert rolls around, I’ve usually stuffed myself silly and I’m struggling to find room for the 5 varieties of treats ahead of me. Luckily these cheesecake stuffed apples slightly rectify the situation by combining two favorite desserts (cheesecake and baked apples) into one.
I say ‘slightly’ because they’re so good you’ll want to eat more than one, which consequently means you’re stuck in the same dilemma of trying to find enough room. But then again, when dessert is concerned, who doesn’t have enough room?!..

I’ll eat pie in just about any form, and preferably with a side of freshly scooped ice cream. That doesn’t exactly make me a connoisseur or anything (unless we’re talking queen of sugar high’s), but I do like to think it entitles me to a little pie experimenting of my own. Of course this wouldn’t be Sugar & Cloth if it wasn’t in the form of macarons, so I’ve taken it upon myself to bring a little Thanksgiving touch to my favorite bite-sized dessert with these DIY pie macarons.
For the sake of winning bets, does anyone instantly recognize what type of pie the light green is? Jared and I have an on-going debate of whether or not people will know what it is without me having to explain myself, and from the reactions around the studio so far, I’m losing…
