Ohhh my MY. These cardamom CARAMEL and pear cookie crumble cups (say that three times fast!) are like a giant dessert hug from all that is fall and I am SO excited to share this easy and incredibly splendid recipe with you.

THEY ARE BEYOND, YOU GUYS. I know I say that sort of thing a lot around here, but uhhhh my goodness.

They are perfectly fall in every aspect of their dessert-ness and I’m literally obsessed. Plus they are made with only one pan and ready in 30 minute so I just know you’re gonna love ’em.

And then we can be obsessed together and have dinner parties where we serve cardamom caramel and pear cookie crumble cups for dessert and everyone else is gonna fall in love with them toooo.

Sound like a plan? 😉

YOU GUYS! THESE DONUTS! Crumbly in all the right ways, slightly springy in texture, studded with fresh raspberries, dipped in a luscious vanilla coconut glaze and sprinkled with tart dried raspberries because donuts like to look pretty, too!

These maaay actually qualify as my new best friend. Is that too pathetic of a statement? How about: good enough to make a NEW best friend. There we go. That sounds a little more social-normal. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve neverrr chosen donuts over friends… *blink blink*

But anyhooo… (that wasn’t awkward at all now was it.. ) 

I’m super excited to be bringing you this scrumptious recipe in collaboration with Windy City Organics and Dastony, a company that makes raw and stone ground nut and seed butters with 100% organic ingredients. They make everything from out-of-this-world-good coconut butter, to pine nut butter, brazil nut butter, pumpkin seed butter and good old standby’s like almond butter. 

And this company is so rad that they’ve offered to do a giveaway for a jar of your very own coconut butter (my personal fave!). It’s happening RIGHT NOW over on my Instagram page until September 12th.  Head on over there now to snag an entry!
