Chocolate Brownies With Icing

iced fudge brownie

A good brownie can stand alone and shouldn’t need icing, but I can’t say I’ve ever had a brownie where the icing made it worse!  The trick is getting the brownie base and icing just right, which means going through a lot of different combinations and making multiple fudge brownies. This was my latest creation, […]

I’m still on a thin sliced biscotti kick, so here’s another version for you. This one is double chocolate and uses assorted nuts, white chips and chocolate chips. For the chocolate base, I just added 1 oz of melted unsweetened chocolate. Another change I made was to halve the recipe (the full batch is below) […]

Amish Sugar Cookies

In honor of National Sugar Cookie Day, here’s an old recipe that I’ve really grown to appreciate over the years. It was given to me by a reader named John, whose version was actually double this.  These are crumbly and light and kind of fall apart when you eat them; but they’re not like shortbread […]

Biscotti Thins

This is one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes, though I can’t say I’ve ever made it the same way twice. These thinly sliced biscotti can be made with almost any kind of chopped dried fruit, nut, candy and flavorings. This version is pretty basic and calls for pecans, white chips and dried cranberries – […]

The Fourth of July is around the corner, and I feel bad about not posting something red, white and blue. I guess I piqued with the flag cake. Maybe I’ll make something with red, white and blue sprinkles just to get in the spirit, but for now here’s a good cookie.  These are dense and […]

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

Some friends requested a batch of cookies made with white chocolate and macadamia nuts, but I have a lot of recipes and couldn’t decide which version to make. There’s my old favorite version which calls for one egg and 1 3/4 cups flour, and this one one, which is similar but has a second egg […]

lemon cookies

Today’s cookies resulted from an attempt to use up half a box of lemon flavored instant pudding mix. I made a half batch using the 1.7 oz of remaining pudding mix and liked the cookies so much I went to the store for more lemon pudding mix!  I can’t wait to serve these to my […]

Fudge Brownies

Last week I posted a recipe for brownies that are delicious, but a little on the thin side. As an experiment, I decided to try decreasing the pan size to make them thicker. It sounds simple, but sometimes changing the pan size throws off the baking time and I wasn’t sure it would work. One […]
