Adapted from <a href="http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/lemon-bars-recipe.html">Ina Garten</a> Pink Lemonade Bars IngredientsFor the crust: 1/2 pound unsalted butter, room temperature 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt For the filling: 6 extra-large eggs, at room temperature 3 cups granulated sugar 2 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest, plus more for garnish 1/2 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice 1/2 cup strawberry pureé 1 cup all-purpose flour Powdered sugar, for dusting Sliced strawberries, for garnish Directions Preheat oven to 350ºF. To make the crust: Cream together the butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Add flour and salt and mix on low until just combined. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead into the shape of a ball. Transfer the dough ball to a quarter-sheet pan; press it out evenly to the edges of the pan. Chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour before baking. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the crust is very lightly browned. Let cool. To make the filling: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and strawberry pureé. Add flour and continue mixing until smooth. Pour filling into the cooled crust and bake for 30 to 33 minutes, or until the filling is set. Let cool completely.

<a href="http://www.popsugar.com/food/Kit-Kat-Croissant-Recipe-38595925"></a>Japan has a serious love affair with Kit Kats (the country sells a zillion flavors like strawberry cheesecake, purple sweet potato, and wasabi that aren't offered in the States), but when Japan's largest coffeehouse <a href="http://en.rocketnews24.com/2015/09/24/japan-now-has-kit-kat-croissants-in-chocolate-and-matcha-green-tea-flavors/" target="_blank">Pronto launched Kit Kat croissants</a>, the entire world took notice. Each Kit Kat croissant contains two Kit Kats (milk chocolate, matcha, or white chocolate) baked into a flaky croissant and topped with powdered sugar. What's incredible is that the treat only costs 180 yen (less than $2). While you may not be able to venture to Japan anytime soon, we took the liberty of re-creating this insanely delicious-looking hybrid using Kit Kats and crescent dough.

Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Into another bowl, whisk together butter, yogurt, vanilla, egg, and sugar. Gently mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until incorporated. Mixture will be thick. Scoop the batter into a piping bag or ziplock bag and snip the corner to make it easier to pour into the donut pan. Pipe batter evenly between each well and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool completely on a wire rack. To frost the donuts place marshmallow fluff in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until smooth, about 40 seconds. Be careful to not over-heat or let the marshmallow fluff spill out over the sides of the bowl. Dip the top of the donut into the marshmallow fluff and sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs.
