These brownies come from Cook's Illustrated. Best. Brownies. Ever. They take some time to make due to cooling after baking and applying the frosting but it's well-worth it. They can be made, of course, without the glaze and/or frosting and are still excellent.
This is a deep, dark chocolate cookie that tastes like a brownie. If you love chocolate, you'll love these. I used to make them often years ago when my kids were little; had an out-of-the-blue request for them, and nearly couldn't find the recipe, so I'm posting it here for safe-keeping. I do remember that I make them with pecans as my family prefers those over walnuts. There might have been other tweaks that I won't remember till I get them made again. Don't remember where I found the recipe, either....
These things have been made by my family since before I can remember. Been made by my sibs and I since we were under age 4. Very good family tradition that we've made almost every year for Christmas and sometimes other holidays. Oh, one thing, you CAN NOT sub the generic excuses for Ritz crackers.....they will not be as crunchy, buttery, or good!
I LOVE these and I was so excited when Todd Wilbur posted his version of the recipe on www.TopSecretRecipes.com! A very sweet, soft triangle of white chocolate and cranberry cake, covered with delicious creamy lemon or orange frosting and dried cranberries that is wonderful with coffee (the acid of the coffee tons down the sweetness of the bars). You can make these lemon or orange flavor. Yum! These are great for Christmas! Awesome for Valentine's Day - just cut into heart shapes. Sugar buzz awaits! VERY very Sweet.
This is good!!! I tasted it at a party and was so surprised to learn that the base of the cookie was a saltine cracker. I haven't made this myself, but plan to do so in the near future. Just thought I would submit it because it is so different.
From the pages of Taste of Home, submitted by Cindy Beberman, these are a wonderfully crisp little cookie with a rich filling sure to please if you're a coffee/hazelnut/chocolate lover! I easily halved the batch and got 30 cookies! To save time, I made the filling before the cookies because it does take awhile to set up and saves time in the long run! *I've made these again since first posting and used Land O Lakes fat free half and half in place of the whipping cream to cut some of the fat/calories/cholesterol a bit and it works just as well without compromising the taste!
These are the beef jerky of the enlightend cowboy in the modern desert." So says my fiancee. These cookies were created by his mum Judy, carried on by his sister Paige, and is now a tradition I'm proud to share.
You will not find a better sugar cookie anywhere you search, this will most likely be the only sugar cookie you will use, not only are these cookies buttery delicious, the dough is an absolute dream to work with, it rolls out easily and is easy to handle, also the cookies hold their shape when baked something many sugar cookies do not do --- make as many different colors as desired in separate bowls with the icing, the cookies must be completely cooled before icing --- plan ahead the dough must be chilled for at least 2 hours before rolling -- since these are topped with icing they are not a sweet cookie if you want a sweeter taste then increase the sugar amount
This recipe is from Wilton.com. This icing dries to a shiny, hard finish. Great to use for icing or to outline and fill cookies with cake tip number 2 or 3. I used this on sugar cookie cutouts, and it worked great. You can add food coloring to it if you want different colors. Easy to write on cookies with.
You'll find these bars at Starbucks during special holidays. The texture is like a chewy brownie, but the flavors include white chocolate, zesty orange, and cranberry, finished with a cream cheese frosting. NOTES - this recipe uses a 10x15 pan. One of the photos shows you how to make the right cuts to create signature triangle shapes.
Nov. 2013 note - the bars bought from Starbucks have gone down-hill this year with icing that is flavorless and no real ginger flavor to the bars. Skip Starbucks and make your own!
For Valentine's Day, I used a heart-shaped cookie cutter and tinted the icing pink. They were beautiful!
These are rich, yummy layered squares that require no bowl or mixing. They are very easy to make and come out wonderful. (I have no idea where the name came from...got these out of a 30 year old women's club cookbook.) 12/23/08: Butter amount changed to reflect the advice and opinions in reviews. Thanks!
These were made at the Soho Charcuterie, a popular restaurant in New York in the 1980's. They are the perfect combination of a bittersweet chocolate flavor with a chewy consistency, studded with pecans and chocolate chips.
