Tuesdays with Dorie: Maple Star Anise Cookies

So, I’m not a star anise fan and don’t keep it in the house. I skipped the star anise and upped the cinnamon and ginger in these a bit. They were so good! My husband thought they were fancy snickerdoodles- hahahaha. Perfect fall spice cookie that matches the weather around here perfectly! Everyone here is…

Tuesdays with Dorie: Spiced Pumpkin Jammers

These were a winner! My  husband was very skeptical when I said I was putting pumpkin filling in a cookie with roasted seeds on top. These actually turned into Spiced Butternut Squash Jammers because I came home from our CSA on Sunday morning with two butternut squash. The filling is with Butternut squash in place…

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 here  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: 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….
