Mother's Day Dessert Ideas

Brown Sugar Buttermilk Pie | une gamine dans la cuisine

My days have been blowing around in a strange windstorm this entire week. I thought Monday was Wednesday and Wednesday was Thursday. Now that it's Friday, I feel inadequate - as though I haven't earned the right to thoroughly enjoy my beloved weekend bounce.

I almost forgot about Mother's Day too! *Eep!* So instead of sharing the cookie recipe I'd promised via Instagram and Facebook...and Twitter (Sheepish am I), I'm digging through the archive and sharing some of my favouite recipes that you, and your fabulous mom, might enjoy.

The peanut butter, oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe will make its gracefully, clumsy appearance next week. Promise.

{Note: The link to each recipe is just below it's corresponding photo.}

P.S. Fellow food blogger, and talented photographer, Jehanne (The Cooking Doctor), has just released a wonderful Mother's Day newsletter - complete with beautiful step-by-step directions on how to make rose cake pops! More details Here.

  1. Any Mother would be so lucky to celebrate the day with any of these desserts! I especially love the lemon bundlettes, of course. Have a great weekend, looking forward to those cookies! :)

  2. That buttermilk pie looks so good. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. What a gorgeous array of desserts, Val! I'm dying for those cookies too...that tease on instagram has me waiting with anticipation! :) Enjoy your weekend!

  4. The lemon bundtlette cakes were a hit last time, we have a whole bunch of lines so lime bundtlettes might be making an appearance. Thanks for a great recipe!

  5. Lovely treats! The cookies look amazing.



  6. These are all gorgeous and perfect for Mother's Day! You certainly have some incredible recipes I am sure all mothers would want a bite out of tomorrow!

  7. I'm a Mother and I would like to have all of these!!! I deserve them, damn it! ;-D

  8. Those strawberry streusel bars are SO on my wish list. Maybe I'll make them for myself tomorrow! (Because, of course, my Mother's Day will be even better if I make my own dessert.)

  9. Incredible desserts Valerie! I think that any one of them would make a mother feel truly spoiled!! My mother is actually away on a business trip at the moment but I might just make those gorgeous streusel bars for a welcome home gift. Yum!

  10. Brown sugar and buttermilk... be still my heart!! What a combo. I think I'd be happy with any of the offerings you have listed here. And I know what you mean about mixing up the days, I've been a bit off myself!

  11. Great choices for your round-up! I would kill for a sweet and salty brownie tonight :)

    PS - I totally owe you an email, I'm way behind - sorry!

  12. i want to eat all the things in this post - you always have the best baked goods :)

  13. your list of desserts are so tempting Valerie, especially the brownies! Thank you for the mention, you are so kind:-)

  14. That pie. Oh, that pie. The lattice work is so perfect. Any dessert would've made me happy from this gorgeous compilation. :)


Thanks for visiting, and for taking the time to read through my ramblings!

Happy Baking!
♥ Valerie
