Hi there! I’m Ellen!

Elle Makes Dessert is a recipe blog for you: easy dessert recipes for busy people.

I test my recipes, include weight measurements for accuracy, and only publish successful recipes that I’m 100% excited about.

So, you can trust giving my recipes a shot!

This is a brand-new website that was developed after I grew my first site, Bellewood Cottage, into a successful and profitable blog.

A small mason jar filled with piped cinnamon whipped cream.

I’m just starting out with the recipes and content in this new space, but here’s a few fun categories you can expect to find here:

Cookie Recipes – A great place to start if you are new to baking, cookies are almost always a fast and easy dessert option. Everyone loves ‘em!

Small Batch Desserts – because not everyone needs a 13”x9” pan of brownies after all.

No Bake Treats – one of the best ways to save time in the kitchen, I love no bake desserts.

Crumbl Cookie Recipes – these popular cookies are everywhere, but I find that I can greatly improve the flavor (and save money!) with homemade variations.

Tips & Tricks – learn how to make desserts more quickly, easily, and successfully.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy!
