Best of 2017 ~ The Sweet Nerd Style

Happy 2018! I hope the new year brings you and yours so much joy. I did want to reminisce on the past year so I’ve put together the top 5 recipes from The Sweet Nerd in 2017. Use the arrows on the side of the image to tab from recipe to recipe. The title of each recipe is also a link to the actual recipe.

#1 Lemon Pie in a Jar 

Mini mason jars are already so darn adorable but fill them with 3 delicious layers and they'll take the number one spot. Cookie crumbs, lemon curd, jam, repeat. 

#2 Spiced Chocolate Cookies

Aleppo, chocolate covered almonds, homemade marshmallows and so many other links to delicious recipes make it obvious why this delicious recipe is number 2. 

#3 Chocolate Pretzel Shortbread

These shortbread cookies aren't just topped with pretzels, the dough is full of pretzels- making them the perfect sweet and salty treat for any craving. 

#4 Pecan Pie Cookies

Is there anything better than the best of both worlds? This treat combines cookies and pecan pie sauce to rock your world. 

#5 Baby Shower Sheep Cupcakes

Do I even need words to justify why these cuties made the list? Animals plus cupcakes = happiness, am I right?
