Homemade ladyfingers come in for the win in this fantastic custard dessert. Tiramisu, Italy’s literal “pick me up” dessert, is a boozy, coffee-filled dessert layered with ladyfingers and custard.
If you happen to be stuck inside for the weekend, baking a cheesecake wouldn’t be the worst use of your time. This cheesecake is certainly a labor of love. Allow time for the caramel to set. If you’re really prepared, even make the caramel sauce and the chai-spiced butter the day before. It’s always nice to spread out your baking time, and besides, then your kitchen will smell like warm cinnamon and cloves two days in a row. With a cheesecake at the end of that road, I would call that a win-win.

Caramel clusters, or turtles as some people call them, are the perfect holiday treat and make fantastic gifts. Besides making the fussy caramel, these are quick and easy treats that even your friends or family members who hate baking can easily help you put together.
