Is a spiralizer necessary? I got one to review, but truth be told I’m unconvinced. It turns out there are lots of ways to get strands and ribbons from vegetables and fruit. The most common kitchen tools, a grater and a vegetable peeler work remarkably well. I’m also a fan of the mandolin which can be used to make many more types of cuts. But if you really enjoy creating these textures and want a single gadget, the Deiss Pro Julienne & Vegetable Peeler is really a three in one. It’s great for peeling potatoes and carrots, but it’s also good for creating those slithery ribbons and shredds for salads. It also has a nifty feature on the side that allows you to remove the “eyes” from potatoes without resorting to a paring knife or use it to create a peel strip from citrus fruit.

Every time that I think the unicorn food trend – a trend which involves a generous use of ingredients like sprinkles, glitter and pink, purple and blue food colorings – is fading, I see someone share something colorful and delicious looking on Instagram and I get swept right back up in it. These Unicorn Cheesecake Brownies were the result of browsing Instagram while I worked on a batch of fudgy brownies. Inspired by the colors, I decided to incorporate them into this easy and indulgent dessert.
The brownies themselves are dense and fudgy, with a rich chocolate flavor and a chewy texture. They’re satisfying brownies and they stand up well to the layer of creamy cheesecake batter that is poured on top of them before baking. The cheesecake mixture comes together very quickly and that is where the unicorn colors come in. After I mixed up the batter in a large bowl, I dipped a toothpick into some gel food colorings (which are thicker and tend to come in more colors than liquid food colorings) and swirled them through the cheesecake mixture. I made one portion of the batter pink, one blue and one purple while still leaving white visible in the bow, then allowed the colors to run together as I poured the mixture on top of the cheesecake base. I gently ran a knife through the cheesecake to marry it to the brownie layer after it was in the pan and before baking.
I recommend gel food colorings for this recipe because they’re thicker and a little easier to work with. If you only have liquid food colorings, you will only need a couple of drops of each color. If you’re worried about blending the colors together in the same bowl, as I did, you can always divide your batter into three smaller bowls to tint it.
The finished brownies are absolutely delicious with rich chocolate and tangy cheesecake in every bite. You’ll definitely feel a bit magical as you look at the bars, too. If you aren’t in a unicorn mood, you can omit the food coloring and make plain cheesecake brownies. That being said, I’ll be on board the unicorn trend and having fun with it as long as its around.
1/2 cup butter
2-oz dark chocolate, chopped
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
8-oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pink, purple and blue food coloring
Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8×8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and lightly grease.
In a small, heatproof bowl, melt butter and chocolate together. Stir with a fork until very smooth. Stir in cocoa powder and vanilla extract. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs and chocolate mixture. Stir until smooth. Sift flour and salt into the bowl and stir until just combined.
Pour brownie batter into prepared pan and prepare cheesecake mixture.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Dip a toothpick into the pink food coloring (pref. gel coloring) and swirl it through the batter. Repeat for remaining colors. If using liquid food colorings, simply add a few drops of each color to the bowl and swirl carefully with a knife or spatula. Do NOT overswirl the colors; you should still see some white in the batter.
Pour the cheesecake mixture onto the brownie batter. Gently swirl two batters with a butter knife.
Bake for 35-38 minutes, until brownies and cheesecake are set. A knife inserted into the cheesecake mixture should come out clean and the edges will be very lightly browned.
Cool in the pan completely before slicing and serving, either at room temperature or chilled.
Brownies can be refrigerated, covered, for several days.

These Apple Hand Pies are portable and delicious, and bring back memories of those little pies in the grocery store checkout line. You could use this base pastry recipe and mix and match all sorts of pie fillings to suit your tastes and use up seasonal fruit.
Apple Pie: rustic, flaky, tart, and spicy. The most iconic of American traditions.
These marvelous little pies package up the best parts of apple pie, eliminate a lot of the work, and deliver scrumptious, addictive fruit-wrapped-in-crust that can be stowed away in your pocket for safe keeping.
I originally shared these apple hand pies with you way, way, wayyyyyyy back in the dark ages of 2008. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve made them myself, but when Joseph saw an episode of his favorite show, Hey Duggee, and it featured an apple pie, he proceeded to walk around the house saying “apple pieeeeeeeee” for days and days. He’d never had apple pie; how could I deprive my child of something so delicious?? I immediately thought of these hand pies, since they would be much easier for him to eat than a slice of apple pie, and I got baking!
The dough for this recipe is really just incredible. I admit that I was somewhat skeptical at first, as it contained sour cream. I had never heard or seen sour cream used in a pie or pastry dough before, so it certainly caused me to raise an eyebrow. But like the good trooper that I am, I forged ahead. This dough has such an incredibly buttery, flaky texture, much like that of a laminated dough you would create for croissants. When you bite into one of these pies, the crust just flakes and shatters, which is basically a crust-lover’s dream come true.
I made two modifications to this recipe (and those changes are reflected in the recipe as it’s written below):
I couldn’t wait to get these baked and cooled enough for Joseph to try one. When I told him I had made him little apple hand pies, he said, “APPLE PIE?!?!”
I gave him half of one and he went over and sat on the fireplace, took a bite, and said, “Mmmmmmmm!” He polished it off quickly and then requested the other half. I’m so happy that I could make his apple pie dreams come true, ha!
These hand pies are a fantastic option for changing up the traditional slice of pie and ice cream and would be especially welcome as a dessert at an outdoor gathering or one that included small children.
And really, for the kid in all of us – what’s much better than a slice of apple pie that you can pick up and carry around with you?
Portable apple pies with a super flaky crust and delicious apple filling.
