Tiramisu with Orphan Girl

Posted on by Julia Bryant

Tiramisu, a classic Italian dish, is a layered dessert with mascarpone cheese, egg yolks, whipped cream, cocoa powder, and coffee dipped cookies. Translated, Tiramisu means, “cheer me up” or “pick me up” and that’s exactly what this dessert does. Now in true Headframe Spirits’ fashion, we took this classic dish and made it our own, infusing our Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur into the recipe for the perfect Easter brunch dessert.

Here’s what you’ll need:

8oz. Marscapone Cheese

1 tsp. Vanilla

4 Egg Yolks

2/3 Cup of Granulated Sugar

1 Cup of Heavy Whipped Cream

1 Cup of Strong Coffee – cooled

1/4 Cup of Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur 

2 Packages of Milk Chocolate filled Milano Cookies (found in any and every cookie aisle)

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Optional: Chocolate Candy Eggs for Decor

This is an easy recipe to make. First, decide if you want to make one large Tiramisu or mini tiramisu cups (like the one we made). For the large Tiramisu, use a 9-inch springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. For a smaller Tiramisu (still enough for two), use 4-inch trifle dishes, they are usually sold in packages of 4.

In a Kitchen Aid or a large bowl with a mixer, beat your egg yolks with 1/3 cup of sugar. Continue to mix it until the dark yolks turn a light yellow color and the mixture doubles in size. Place this mixture into a separate bowl for later.

Next, beat your heavy whipped cream until it starts to thicken, then add the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar and the teaspoon of vanilla. Continue to mix until stiff peaks form. Add your mascarpone cheese and allow the mixture to fully combine. Take your yellow egg batter and gently mix it (use a spatula, not a mixer) with your whipped cream.

Now in a shallow bowl combine your chilled coffee and Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur. You are ready to start assembling!

In your container of choice (trifle dish or springform pan), sprinkle your unsweetened cocoa powder using a fine-mesh sifter, until the bottom is evenly covered (about a Tb. worth). Take your Milano cookies and dip them into your coffee/ Orphan Girl mixture. Be sure to get them nicely coated. Then evenly place the cookies on the bottom of the pan. Take a large scoop of your whipped cream and egg batter and place into on top of the cookies, spreading it evenly over the surface. Dust the layer with your unsweetened cocoa powder again, then restart the process. Dipped cookies, whipped cream, cocoa powder… until you reach the top of your cake pan. Finish with some festive chocolate eggs then refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

Serve with a small glass of chilled milk and Orphan Girl. Cheers!

OG King Cake

Posted on by Julia Bryant

Fat Tuesday is almost here, and we’ve decided to put our own twist on a New Orleans’ classic to celebrate — the King Cake! The King Cake tradition was brought to New Orleans from France in 1870 and has become a symbol of Mardi Gras. Enjoy this special treat spiked with Orphan Girl for the ultimate Mardi Gras party dessert.

Here’s what you’ll need:


1 Packet of Dry-Activated Yeast

1 1/3 Cup Lukewarm

1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar

2/3 Cup of Milk

4 Cups of Flour

1 Egg and 2 Tb. Water for Egg-wash


8 oz softened Cream Cheese

1/4 Cup Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur 

1/2 Cup of Powdered Sugar

1 tsp. Cinnamon

Piping Bag and tip


1 1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar

1/2 tsp of Vanilla

1/4 Cup of Milk

Sprinkles: Purple, Green, Yellow (or Gold)

In a large bowl, place activated yeast and Lukewarm water mix until yeast is dissolved and bubbles appear. Add sugar, mix again. Add your milk into the mixture then slowly begin to incorporating your flour. Continue to mix until flour in well incorporated and a ball of dough has formed. Cover your bowl and dough with a cloth or plastic wrap and allow it to rise for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350, take your dough and begin to roll it out into a long rounded piece, place your plastic baby into the dough so it is well hidden. You can buy your plastic baby on Amazon, here. using some water pull the two ends together to make a large circle. Place your cake onto baking sheet with parchment paper underneath. whisk your egg and water in a small bowl to make an egg wash and brush that onto your bread. Bake until a light golden 25-30 minutes.

Once cooked, remove from oven and allow it to cool down.

In a kitchen aid, whip your softened cream cheese for 30 seconds. Slowly  add the powdered sugar until it is incorporated then add your Orphan Girl and cinnamon. Allow the mixture to whip together for a few minutes until the consistency is light. Place into your piping bag.

In a separate bowl, combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk to make your icing. The consistency should be pourable, if it is not add a Tb. more of milk.

Take your filling and begin to fill your bread from the inside of your circle, by using the tip of the piping bag to puncture the bread.  Do that on the inside and outside of the bread. Take your icing and pour it onto the top of your bread until the top is covered and immediately place your sprinkles on top: Purple, Green, Yellow (or Gold).

Serve to a large group! Whoever gets the baby in his/her slice of cake will have a year of luck and prosperity, or so they say. Let The Good Times Roll!

It’s time to get festive! Thanksgiving is mere days away and if you need an appetizer that will impress your Thanksgiving host — We’ve got you covered! This baked brie is crunchy on the outside and soft and melty on the inside, topped with a boozy cranberry sauce for a sweet and tangy effect. Serve it with crackers, apples, or even all by itself, it’s a crowd favorite.

Here’s what you’ll need:

1/4 Cup Anselmo Gin

1 box Puff Pastry ( Thawed! You will use only one sheet unless you want to add some fun designs)

1 wheel of brie

1 jar of Cranberry Sauce with whole cranberries

1 Egg

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

Crackers or Granny Smith apples ( I went with Focaccia crackers)

Thaw your puff pastry in the fridge overnight. Once ready, use a rolling pin and lightly roll out one of your puff pastry sheets with just a little bit of flour. Don’t press too hard or your pastry may not puff up. Cut your dough to the desired shape. I just folded it with the edges, but if you want it to have a perfectly rounded shaped cut the excess off. Put your brie in the middle and wrap the dough around the wheel. Ina bowl, whisk one egg with 3 Tb. of water, brush egg wash mixture onto your puff pastry wrapped cheese.

Preheat over to 425. Place wrapped Brie into the oven for 10 minutes or until the puff pastry dough is clearly puffed up and lightly browned. Lower temp to 375 and let the entire  pastry turn a nice golden brown color (5-10 minutes). Remove from oven and let cool.

In a medium saucepan place 1 cup of your Cranberry sauce and 1/4 cup of your Anselmo Gin with a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon heat on Medium High. Let the mixture come to a light boil, stir, then lower the heat to low. Let the mixture remain on low while stirring for a few minutes then after a taste test pour the mixture on top of your puff pastry creation.

Then, Feast! Happy Thanksgiving, Headframe Family!

This recipe is for 21 and over.

Wands at the ready, it’s Butterbeer time!

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 Tb. warm water

Cream Soda

Whipped Cream

Speculator PieCaken

Posted on by Julia Bryant

Move over Turducken, there’s a new Thanksgiving marvel in town: the PieCaken!

We decided to make our own PieCaken filled with Headframe goodness, for 21 and over. Warning: this dessert will make you the life of your Thanksgiving party and you will be asked to make it again and again for every holiday.

Here’s what you’ll need:
1 Speculator Apple Pie, cooked & cooled, recipe here >>
2 Boxes of Spice Cake – follow box ingredients
2 Green Apples
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1/4 C. Heavy Cream
3 T. Unsalted Butter
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
6 Cups Sifted Powdered Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Unsalted Butter Room Temperature (3 Sticks)
1 Tb. Vanilla
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 Shot of Speculator Rye Whiskey
10-inch Springform Pan
Canola Oil Spray
Tin foil

Preheat the oven to 350. Make 2 boxes of Spice Cake, be sure to follow the instructions for high elevation if you live in the mountains like we do. Spray your springform pan with oil, pour cake batter onto the bottom until 1/3 is filled. Take your cooked and cooled pie and carefully place it on the batter. Fill the springform pan with remaining batter until it is 1 1/2 inches below the top of the pan. You will have remaining batter.

Place your PieCaken in the oven with a tray on the rack below. Cook for 30 minutes then cover the top of the springform pan with tin foil. Begin checking the PieCaken every 15 minutes to see if the middle is still loose. It will begin to solidify. Total bake time is on average 1 hour. Every oven is different so be sure to continuously check. Using a toothpick check your cake by poking a hole into the middle, the toothpick should come out clean. Once done, remove cake and place on a wired rack to cool. After 15 minutes, use a buttered knife to slowly loosen the edges of your cake. Open the springform and allow the cake to fully cool on the springform bottom. Leave to cool.

With a mixer, cream your 3 sticks of room temp butter, add salt and vanilla. Slowly add your sifted powdered sugar. Continue to beat until the buttercream is fluffy. Finish with 1 shot of Speculator and completely mix in. Set aside.

In a saucepan combine 3 T. of Butter with Brown Sugar and Cinnamon on medium-high. Add your peeled and sliced apples. Continuously mix until caramel forms. Remove from heat and whisk in heavy cream. Set mixture aside to cool.

Once your PieCaken is completely cooled, spread on your boozy buttercream and top it with your caramel apples allowing some of the caramel to drip down the cake. We topped it off with a swirl of buttercream and a bay leaf for some Thanksgiving flare.
Be sure to serve it with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream! Mmmmm…

BOO-zy Caramel Apples

Posted on by Julia Bryant

This is the type of treat that takes Halloween to the next level — sticky caramel with the pop of our Orphan Girl Bourbon Cream Liqueur and a fresh snap of Granny Smith Apple. Celebrating Halloween just got THAT much better.

Here’s what you’ll need: 

1/3 C. Orphan Girl Bourbon Liqueur

11oz. Bag of Kraft Caramels (usually found by the apples)

4 large Granny Smith Apples – washed and dried

Parchment paper

Popsicle sticks

Toppings: magic shell, nuts, coconut flakes (optional)

In a saucepan, stir all the unwrapped caramels and Orphan Girl Cream Liqueur on medium-low, be sure to store continuously to avoid burning. Wait until caramels have fully melted and mixed with the Orphan Girl. The consistency should be a thick liquid. Add an extra shot of Orphan Girl if the caramel is too tough.

Take your dried apples and poke wooden popsicle sticks through the tops. Wipe off any apple juice. Take your apple by the stick and gently submerge it into the warm caramel making sure to get all the sides. Hold the apple out of the caramel for a few seconds (over the pot) then dunk again. Place the apple immediately on parchment paper, unless you are adding a special topping, like nuts, which you apply by dipping your apple into while hot. Feel free to drizzle on some magic chocolate shell and make this into edible art, why not?

Let your apples dry for at least an hour (the fridge works great for that), and voila, they are ready to enjoy!

Hope your Halloween is extra spirited this year.
