TWD: Buttery "Jam" Cookies

If you were to make a recipe titled Buttery Jam Cookies, what flavors would you expect to find? Butter, naturally. And also jam, correct? So why, then, did my Buttery “Jam” Cookies taste like…nothing? They’re kind of cute, right? I used chunky cherry preserves from TJ’s, and last time I checked, they tasted awesome and…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Christmas Sugar Cookies

After the fun of baking with my mom last week, it was a bit of a letdown to go back to solo baking. However, the fabulous sugar cookie recipe this week and the resulting cookies I scarfed went a long way toward consoling me. So, folks. Sugar cookies. Not too exciting, right? A basic component…

Tuesdays with Mommie: Linzer Sables

This week’s TWD recipe is very special. For the first. time. ever.in Cake or Death history, I had my mom baking with me! Or more accurately, I baked with her, since we were in her kitchen using her ingredients. (Thanks, Mom! Sorry for spilling that ganache on the floor. And for dirtying so many dishes…

TWD: If You’re Gonna Be My Rice Pudding, It Don’t Matter If You’re Black or White

My excitement over this week’s TWD recipe could be summed up by the sound of crickets chirping. I actually like rice pudding, but…you know, when I feel like indulging in dessert, I don’t know that rice should be involved. Gobs of frosting and pounds of chocolate? Yes. A grain typically served as a side dish…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Kugelhopf

Kugelhopf: German for “Frustratinghopf” Oh, my friends. I realize that most of you do not know me in real life. I like to think that I present the best image of myself on this blog, and that you all think of me as a lovely, happy-go-lucky, cheerful person. My friends, this is a lie. The…

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…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes

Ahh, velcome to Tuesdays vith Dorie…Haunted Cupcake Edition. Mwahahaha! As a holiday, Halloween doesn’t inspire a lot of passion in me. I can never think of brilliant costume ideas, and let’s face it, I chow down on candy year-round. However, I do love cake (and cupcake!) decorating, so when Clara at I Heart Food for…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Pumpkin Muffins

It is a strange fact of life that I love the flavor of pumpkin, but am conflicted about actual pumpkin foods. Pumpkin bread? Yes please! Pumpkin pie? Blech! Pumpkin cookies? Yum. Pumpkin ravioli? Noooo. Fortunately, pumpkin muffins fall firmly into the “EAT ME” category, so I was excited about this week’s recipe. (I was also…
