Thankful for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies were a holiday tradition around my house, so imagine my surprise when, in my adulthood, I encountered those unfortunate souls who had never had a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie. (Some even went so far as to gag at the thought of pumpkin and chocolate combined, and to them I say: fools!)…

Buttermilk Cookies: No Pumpkin Required

Many moons ago, I saw a recipe for buttermilk cookies on Ezra Pound Cake. Rebecca made them look and sound like an amazing summer treat, and I added them to my ever-increasing To Bake list. A month or two later, I finally got around to making them. A few months after that, I’m finally getting…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Rugelach

So a few weeks ago I whined about how I hate making biscotti because I used to have to make it by the truckload. Someone, somewhere, heard my pathetic grumbling and decided to teach me a lesson by having rugelach be this week’s TWD recipe. You see, back in the day when I had to…

Take Your Blog to Work Day

I’ve been a little quiet lately because work has been hectic. This past weekend we had a 100-person wedding (tiered cake, groom’s cake cupcakes, and mini cookie wedding favors) and a 300-person dessert catering event, in addition to our usual daily orders. And have I mentioned that we are currently a two-woman operation? Fortunately, we…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Lenox (non)Almond Biscotti

Let me start by saying: I really liked the recipe this week! Huzzah! Really, my enjoyment of this week’s recipe comes as such a relief. I was starting to get a complex, because I feel like every week I’m a Bad Attitude Bear. It’s all, “I wanted to like this recipe, buuuut…whine whine whine.” And…

Snickerdoodles of Lust

I have a shameful confession: I have been watching the new 90210 show. This is especially embarrassing because not only is it lowest-common-denominator teenybopper trash, but it’s not even well done trash. Whereas some teen shows can be defended because they provide an endless stream of over-the-top soapy action and questionably awesome fashion, 90210 is dead dull….

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Chunkers

Chipsters, Chunkers, Grabbers…we Doritos continue our obsession with twee-ly named cookies this week. “Chocolate Chunkers” have a rich, fudgy cookie base with lots of melted chocolate (unsweetened and bittersweet) AND cocoa in the batter, which is then loaded with chunks of bittersweet and white chocolate, chopped nuts, and dried fruit.

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops

Picasso had his blue period. Woody Allen had his Scarlett Johansson period. And we Tuesdays with Dorie bakers, we are in the midst of our great Cookie Period. Last week we did Chunkariffic Peanutty Buttery Oatey Chocolatey Cookie-y Chubbers (or whatever they were called) and this week we have Chocolate Malted Whopper Drops. No boring…
