Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops

This recipe is all I hoped it would be; chocolaty, chewy goodness. This is the brownie version of a crinkle topped cookie. Made with eight ounces of bittersweet chocolate, this is not for the faint of heart. We are chocolate lovers and these are disappearing fast in my house as well as the milk. To…

Caramelized-Coffee Bean Pots de Creme

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are tackling one of three Pots de Creme we have left on the list. This dessert is definitely for the coffee lover. The special part of this recipe is caramelizing the coffee beans in sugar while not setting off the fire alarm. Whole milk and cream are steeped…

Chocolate-Pecan Pie Cookie Bars

Every year I host a friendsgiving and it is always bigger than my Thanksgiving. I bake our November selections every year and Dorie’s desserts are always a crowd pleaser. This year I picked these chocolate-pecan pie cookie bars to share. The base of the cookie is Dorie’s sweet tart dough partially baked. The topping is…

A mere few ingredients blended to make these crunchy cookies that look like biscotti but are not. Egg whites, sugar and a little salt are blended…

Cornmeal and Fruit Loaf

Cream Cheese and Toast Tartlets

Our latest baking adventure for Tuesdays with Dorie are these cream cheese and toast tartlets. I am a sucker for a tartlet so I was looking forward to these minified versions. The cream cheese filling is lighter than traditional cheesecake as it is not baked but whipped with heavy cream. So yes light in texture…

Parmesan Galettes

The Parmesan galettes are part of Dorie’s Cookies cocktail cookies section. There are just three ingredients to these galettes; flour, butter and Parmesan cheese, lots of Parmesan cheese. The dough made in a food processor and chilled for 1-2 hours comes together easily. I made my galettes free form as I had no patience for…
