Tuesdays with Dorie

TWD: Caramel Crunch Tart with Nougat Ice Cream

Hello, Snickers bar disguised as a fancy tart! I mean, that’s what this was, right? A crispy tart shell encased a fabulously dark caramel sauce studded with salty peanuts, topped by a rich chocolate ganache. Caramel + peanuts + chocolate = Snickery goodness. Of course, this tart was waaaay better than your common candy bar.I…

TWD: Cottage Cheese Pufflets

Wow, sucks to be these Cottage Cheese Pufflets. On any other week, I’d make them and think, “Hey, those were pretty good. The dough was ridiculously soft and finnicky, and they could have been flakier, but overall they were pretty solid.” However, the Pufflets (which, by the way, will be my next band name) had…

TWD: Flaky Apple Turnovers

I just fired my husband, and these flaky apple turnovers are to blame. See, his job to is bring mindfulness and moderation to my dessert consumption. Without his gentle reminders, I am prone to eating enormous quantities of desserts all at once and then loudly whining about how much I regret it for the rest…

Tuesdays with Mommie II: Chocolate Souffles

Guess who’s back baking with me?! I’ll give you a hint: you may know her from such baking adventures as Tuesdays with Mommie: Linzer Sables. Yes, it’s my ma! She’s here visiting us for a few days, and she brought our signature baking move with her:

TWD: Lime Cream Meringue Tarts

For some reason, motivating myself to make these lime meringue tarts was like pulling teeth this week. No, scratch that. Making these tarts was like visiting your tiresome Great Aunt Gladys for the holidays. You don’t want to do it, but you feel a great sense of obligation, and you imagine the pangs of guilt…

TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars

Say hello to entry #276 in the “Not Much To Look At But Darn Tasty” category of desserts: Dorie’s Applesauce Spice Bars. I wasn’t head-over-heels about making this recipe, since it seems very autumn-ish and it’s still only August. More fresh berry desserts, please! However, the day after I made this, we had a beautiful…

TWD: Brownie Buttons

I loved everything about these wee cute-as-a-you-know-what brownie buttons. Adorable size? Check. Easy to make? Yes. Good crunchy-crust-to-fudgy interior ration? Uh-huh. Twee name? Absolutely. Great taste? Certainly!After a morning of airplane travel and hours spent at the Sprint store and grocery store, it was a relief to be able to come home, make these, photograph…

TWD: Yes, We Have Banana Bundt Cake

Fans of Arrested Development may be familiar with this little guy here: Allow me to introduce Mr. Bananagrabber, who is, in the words of the Arrested Development wiki, “an anthropomorphic banana who rides a Segway and steals and eats other bananas. When he speaks, his S’s whistle.” [You may well be asking yourself the same…
