Tuesdays with Dorie: Devils Food Wafflets with Chocolate Sauce

I’ve been neglecting my blog and Tuesdays with Dorie in recent months. We got married in April, have had a busy summer, and now we’re both back in school (plus us both working full time). It’s busy. But my husband’s company has been complaining about the lack of cookies and Tuesdays with Dorie is my…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Mocha Ricotta Puffs

I’m not new to the game of adding ricotta cheese to cookies- there’s a family ricotta cookie recipe hereĀ  that dates back a few generations and is by far the most used page of a family cookbook that spans multiple generations. I happened to have whole milk ricotta in the fridge, so that was an…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Sebastian’s Remarkably Wonderful Brownies

So I have a favorite brownie recipe. They’ve been proclaimed best brownies ever eaten by family members and friends… and then I made Sebastian’s Remarkably Wonderful Brownies. The other brownie recipe? Has big competition! Needless to say, we really enjoyed these. And so did my fiance’s entire office- lots of compliments! This recipe is featured…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Chunkers

All I can say is WOW. These were good. All chocolaty, with a tang from dried cherries and a crunch from the nuts. I think these Chunkers are going to make another appearance this month- scaled down to bite size for the dessert table at my bridal shower! Thank you, Dorie, for another fabulous recipe…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Dulche de Leche

I’m going to be honest- I thought we had marshmallow fluff and I thought we had condensed milk. Turns out I was wrong on both accounts but I did have plenty of fresh cranberries! So the filling is a thick cream cheese icing. These are pretty much heaven- pumpkin spice, cranberry and cream cheese- who…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Crumb-Topped Apple Bars

I made these yesterday, on Tuesday, but ran out of room to post them. We’re full swing into apple season here inMichigan, so it was nice house several local varieties in these. I did make one tiny modification- I added cinnamon to my crumb. These were ever so good! Definitely on the list of apple…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Graham Crackers

Well, I can say it’ll be awhile before I’m buying a box of graham crackers at the store again. The flavor combinations and shape possibilities are still whirling in my mind, and my fiancee really wants another batch to do s’mores with before it gets too cold! These were ever so simple to make too-…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Two Bite One Chip Cookies

These had to be the absolute cutest little cookies I’ve ever made! That being said, I don’t plan on making these again. They took a LOT of patience… one teaspoon of dough and one chocolate chip at a time, scooping out of what looked to be a never ending bowl of cookie dough. Two Bite…

Tuesdays with Dorie REWIND: Coffee Malteds

I’m not a coffee fan- in any form. Hot, cold, flavored- forget it. I did like these cookies though! I used ground Starbucks mocha peppermint coffee and regular malted milk powder. They were a huge hit here! And even better? Start to finish, clean up and out of the oven- in less than an hour….

Tuesdays with Dorie: Crash-O-Cookies

An oatmeal cookie stuffed with dried fruit and chocolate? Who can resist? I used dried cherries in mine upon realizing that I was out of raisins. They ended up more flat than they looked in the book, although I followed the recipe to the T. Oh well… these went over very well and everyone liked…
