Chocolate Cinnamon Bread with Sugar Crust

When I first glanced at this Starbucks recipe and read the name, I assumed that it would come out as a kind of quick bread, the sort of loaf that is slightly dense and goes splendidly with a cup of coffee. Now, I won’t argue that it doesn’t go well with coffee (it does), but it is most certainly not as much a bread as it ... Read More »

It just wouldn’t be right to celebrate National S’mores Day without making a couple of s’mores – or at least using the concept of the s’more as a jumping off point for something equally delicious. This bar cookie is a variation on the classic s’more. Instead of sandwiching marshmallow and chocolate in between two graham crackers, or even between two cookies, the fillings are baked ...

 By and large, cookie doughs tend to be all one flavor – usually chocolate or vanilla.
