Here in the East Coast Kitchen, I love to bake with my family, whether it is delicious classic cookies, iconic Canadian desserts, or even some truly classic dishes with a bit of twist. These are some staple desserts I think you will love and should know how to make! Here are a few favourite recipes I’ve picked out!
These molasses sugar cookies are one of the greatest cookies in the world, and I think you should give it a try! It’s soft, chewy, and sweet with an unmistakable molasses flavour. This may not have any chocolate chips, but they are 100% worth it!

This is an iconic Canadian dessert that is right up there next to the poutine! With three incredibly different layers that balance each other very well. There is a rich chocolate coconut base, creamy and sweet custard centre, and topped with melted chocolate! Recreate this one!

This is a nostalgic recipe I wanted to share with you all! Traditionally, these were made around Christmas time with only the ingredients that were available in Newfoundland during the winter. Fresh ingredients were hard to come by, so these were usually made with canned ingredients like sweetened condensed milk. With only 8 ingredients, you can make this classic and delicious dessert!
