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 »

Individual Chocolate Coconut Cream Pies

The perfect bite

Coconut cream pie is always a favorite of mine, mostly because I am a big fan of coconut, but also because I like the additional texture that coconut adds to a cream pie. I’ve had some coconut cream pies that are too dense, too thick. I like mine to be lighter, with a creamy mouthfeel. Sometimes, this means that the pie filling is a little ... Read More »

Pomegranate, Chocolate and Pecan Brownie Cookies

Pomegranate, Chocolate and Pecan Brownie Cookies

Fresh pomegranate seeds (actually called arils) are a little too moist to do well in a batch of cookies. Dried pomegranate seeds are a little bit too dry and crunchy. Dark Chocolate Covered Pomegranate seeds, however, seem to be just right. The dark chocolate brings out some of the fruity notes of the dried pomegranate flesh, while it also serves to temper the crunch of ... Read More »

Black and White Brownie Bars

Black and White Chocolate Bars

This is definitely a recipe for chocolate lovers. Black and White Brownie Bars are brownie-like cookie bars that are packed with both semisweet and white chocolate, giving them a beautiful black and white look and a even better flavor. I like them because they make an impact when they’re put out on the dessert tray, of course, but I also like the way that the ... Read More »
