The best part of every dinner party, barbecue, birthday celebration or special occasion is dessert and if you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen, order from Crinkle Mingle by Sharie.
I discovered this wonderful home bakery on Instagram and learned that Sharie is a nurse who recently made the switch to stay at home mom. She specializes in traditional Filipino desserts that will knock your socks off. Her crinkle cookies are the BEST in the city (I can’t stop eating them).
These yummy crinkles are dense, rich, soft and extremely flavorful. The texture is a scrumptious combination of cookie and cake and the colorful boxes make great gifts (buy extra because you won’t want to share).
Flavors and colors:
Pink – strawberry
Green – pandan - a tropical leaf used in South Asian cuisine
Purple – ube (purple yam)
Deep brown – chocolate
If you’re wondering what my favorite is, it’s ALL of them. Order the assorted box and thank me later.
Summer is pie season and my family is obsessed with Crinkle Mingle’s Buko Pie made with tons of yummy coconut. We also love the Egg Pie stuffed with creamy custard - the texture is combination of flan and cheesecake.
I like that the fillings are not too sweet and the buttery, flaky crust is baked to perfection!
If you show up to the family function with one of these pies, it will be devoured in the blink of an eye.
