Chocolate Cookies n’ Cream Cookies

Chocolate Cookies n' Cream Cookies

Cookies n’ cream will probably always be one of my favorite ice cream flavors, one that I reach for every once in a while for because – let’s face it – vanilla, chocolate and oreo cookies is a great flavor combination. It’s a flavor combination that can be great in all kinds of different desserts, too, not just in ice creams. I’ve used it in ... Read More »

Chocolate Chip Blondies with Pistachios and Cherries

Blondies with CCs, Cherries and Pistachios

Blondies are one of my favorite bar cookies to make. They have all the flavor of a good, buttery chocolate chip cookie with the rich, tender texture of a brownie – with a bit less chocolate, of course. They’re very versatile cookies and you can mix almost anything into them. This is probably why I tend to get a little carried away when I bake ... Read More »

Baked Alaska

Baked Alaska, innards!

I don’t usually trot out a big plate of brownies for dessert on a special occasion (although occasionally one will slip in there!), but brownies can be the basis for a fabulous and elegant dessert: Baked Alaska. Baked Alaska is a dessert that consists of a brownie base topped with ice cream, then covered in meringue and baked until browned. The “alaska” part of the ... Read More »

Chewy Salted Pecan and Chocolate Chip Squares

Chewy Pecan Bars

There are some recipes that I’ve tried out thinking that they won’t really work out, when it seems like they’re missing an ingredient or the instructions are very strange. Sometimes, they really are missing an ingredient, but other times, the recipes really surprise me and Maida Heatter’s Pecan Chews, from Maida Heatter’s Great Cookies, fell into this category the first time I tried them years ...

Dark and Milk Chocolate Brownies

Dark and Milk Chocolate Brownies

Maybe it’s not fashionable to admit it anymore, but I like milk chocolate. I like that it is creamy and sweet, with a good balance of darker chocolate and dairy notes. I tend to think that it is under-appreciated when it comes to baking these days because some people are so set on dark chocolate that they overlook milk even in applications where it would ...

Homemade Fudgsicles

Homemade Fudgsicles

Fudgsicles were one of my favorite summertime treats as a child. They are chocolate popsicles, with a great chocolate flavor to them. I’ve seen lots of recipes for Fudgsicles over the years and have noticed that, in spite of their names, none of them are really quite like the original Fudgsicles. Oh, they’re all very chocolaty, but many recipes call for lots of cream or ... Read More »

Cookies n’ Cream Scones

Cookies n' Cream Scones, minus a bite or two

I really enjoyed the Chocolate Chip Cookie Scones that I made not too long ago, so I was inspired to do another cookie-meets-scone merger starting with an entirely different type of cookie: Oreos (or other similar sandwich cookies). These cookies find their way into all kinds of other desserts, from ice creams to cakes to give them a cookies n’ cream flavor that is so ... Read More »

Melt-in-Your-Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

Melt in your mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies

There are all kinds of chocolate cookies out there. Thick cookies, thin cookies, crispy cookies and chewy cookies. I like them all, but every once in a while I come across a chocolate cookie that I like just a little bit more than the others and these Melt-in-Your Mouth Buttermilk Chocolate Cookies definitely fall into that category. These cookies are alittle bit unassuming on their ... Read More »
