TWD: Vanilla Bean Ice Cream Sandwiches and Bonbons

Let it be known: this was the week all of my husband’s dreams came true. You see, he is a simple man, with simple dessert needs. While I love deep, dark chocolate cakes drizzled with five kinds of sauces and topped with sorbets that involve obscure ingredient combinations, he likes vanilla ice cream. By itself….

Daring Bakers Knockoff Cookies

I had mixed feelings when I read about this month’s Daring Bakers challenge. We were given two recipes that were “copycats” of popular store-bought cookies: chocolate-covered marshmallow cookies, and Pepperidge Farm Milanos. On the one hand, it didn’t seem too daring. On the other, summers get busy, and whipping out a few batches of cookies…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Coconut Butter Thins

I will be the first to admit that these Coconut Butter Thins aren’t going to win first place in any beauty pageants. However, I think they have a good shot at winning Miss Congeniality (the award, not the Sandra Bullock movie). I made these after reading a lot of feedback from my fellow TWD’ers, which…

TWD: At Long Last, World Peace

Sometimes the problems of the world seem overwhelming. Despotic governments, economies in shambles, wars everywhere you turn…it’s enough to make you want to stay in bed with the covers pulled up. Ladies and gentlemen, I have finally found the solution to all of life’s ills. I present to you: WORLD PEACE cookies World Peace Cookies…

Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies

Is there anything better than Nutella? I mean, think about it. Chocolate and hazelnuts get together and produce a sweet, smooth, creamy baby, available in a handy jar. In a jar, people. Basically begging to be spread on everything from croissants to pretzels to your fingers. Sick of healthy apples for a snack? A dab…

Resolution Breaker Tollhouse Pie

Happy New Year! Have you made your resolutions yet? Do any of them happen to involve healthier eating and/or weight loss? If so, you may want to stop reading now, because this month’s Pies With That challenge was all about creating a pie so tempting, it could only be called a resolution breaker. It didn’t…

Christmas Baking, Part 2

I like the Christmas candy recipes that I posted yesterday, but I LOVE these cookie recipes. I guess I’m more of a cookie girl at heart. Gingerbread Cookies This recipe is AMAZING. I’ve tried many different gingerbread recipes, and I invariably find ones that taste great but don’t hold their shape well, or hold their…

Christmas Baking, Part 1

No TWD for me this week…the house is already stuffed to the rafters with sugary sweets, and the thought of adding butterscotch pudding to the mix didn’t excite me at all. However, I did happen to make some things I think are even better than pudding: Christmas cookies and candy! I got medieval with the…
