Bites from other Blogs

  • You can find a chocolate fix in a batch of the Chocolate Toffee Cookies that Sugar Cooking baked up this week. They’re almost brownies, in cookie form, with very little flour and lots of melted chocolate in the dough. Toffee bits and walnuts break up the intensity of the chocolate a bit, and add a little extra texture to the cookies. The dough for these cookies has to chill a bit before baking, so take that into account before starting a batch.
  • Two Peas and Their Pod squeezed all the classic elements of a s’more into one batch of S’mores Cookies. These cookies have graham cracker crumbs in the dough, along with chocolate chunks and mini marshmallows. I love the fact that you can still see the Hershey’s logo on the chunks of chocolate, straight from the chocolate bar, since Hershey’s bars are definitely the classic chocolate used for a good campout s’more.
  • I tend to find lemon sorbets in ice cream shops, not lemon ice creams, but Use Real Butter‘s description of some homemade Lemon Ice Cream puts me in the mood for some. The ice cream uses both lemon juice and lots of lemon zest, along with milk, cream, egg yolks and sugar, which you would find in most ice creams. The lemon really comes through in the finished ice cream, making a creamy and refreshing treat for a hot summer day.
  • Princess cake is a popular Swedish dessert, a sponge cake layered with pastry cream, whipped cream and jam, then sealed in with a dome of green-tinged fondant. The dessert is distinctive, and quite beautiful. That beauty translates into cuteness in The Cookie Shop‘s Princess Cupcakes, which are miniature versions of the larger namesake cake. The primary difference, aside from the size, is that the cupcakes start out as vanilla cupcakes, not as sponge cake. This recipe comes along with some great step-by-step photos that show you how to assemble them yourself.
  • The Sour Cherry Almond Frozen Yogurt recipe that Always Order Dessert is simple and flavorful. The thing that really caught my eye with this recipe was the story that accompanied it. It’s a reminiscence of an unusually eventful childhood trip to an ice cream shop. I have to admit that I’ve referred to sugar as a “drug” before in jest, so take a peek at the story and take your own guess as to what the players might have been referring to – ice cream, or something else?
