Tuesdays with Dorie

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…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Caramel-Peanut Brownie Cake

Members of the jury, I ask you: can Dorie’s Caramel-Peanut Brownie Cake more accurately be described as Diabetes on a Plate Cake? Exhibit A: Exhibit B: Seriously, y’all. I love me some sugar as much as the next person, but this cake was intense. It was, in the terminology of my barely-remembered high school chemistry…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Cinnamon Crème Brûlée

Yes, this is a story about baking. It’s about crème brûlée, and how to make a fine, fine batch of cinnamon-flavored custard. But mostly it’s a love story. I am speaking, of course, about the love between a girl and her brand-spankin-new Bernzomatic Fat Boy propane blow torch. Because, you see, there is only one…

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…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Oatmeal-Peanut-Chocolate Cookies

I passed on last week’s TWD recipe because I was all alone in the house and couldn’t justify making a big ice cream-ganache cake with only my lonesome to eat it, and my miserly self couldn’t justify using almost a dozen eggs and pounds of chocolate, only to gift the whole thing to friends. There…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Granola Grabbers

Ah, “Granola Grabbers.” Such an aggressive, puzzling, tantalizing name for what turned out to be a fairly mediocre cookie. I’m hesitant to say that I disliked these cookies, because there was nothing overtly offensive about them, but I will say that I was distinctly underwhelmed. There’s just too much going on! In addition to regular…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Black and White Banana Loaf

I am so excited to finally be joining the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group. My old boss had Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours and I used to paw through it, drooling over the photos and recipes, and occasionally making something from the book as a special at the bakery. However, I didn’t…
