Generally I don't make or eat sweets, but these are recipes that have caught my eye that look interesting. Occasionally I need to bring something sweet to a potluck, so I wanted to gather these recipes in one place.
This pie is EXCELLENT! If your looking for a delicious chocolate fix, here it is! This is great to bring to a friends for dessert after dinner, or to a party at work. Awesome for any type of get together actually! I serve with a big scoop or two of French Vanilla ice cream, just to put a smile on everyones face, and add a few extra calories :) Prep time does not include time it takes to make the pie crust, or the chilling time.
This is my husband's grandmother's recipe that is cherished by the family. They are the best cookie that melts in your mouth. They don't have the normal peanut butter fork crossing...but more of a crackled sugar type cookie... My husband comes from a huge family - and these are one of the cherished recipes!!
I found this while searching the web and decided to try it today. My youngest son told me it was the best he ever had and my brother went so far as to say it was oreogasmic...so I'll let you decide. It is best to spay the cupcake liners so the brownies don't stick.
I think that these are just about the untimate ginger cookies. If you don't over bake them they will maintain a softness that is so toothsome. Warning! These cookies are telepathic and will call to you from the cookie jar to come and get them.
This is just to die for!! I've never served this without someone wanting the recipe, but more than that, they want to take leftovers home! (That's why I always make a double batch!). It's a simple make-ahead sauce and can be used for dessert or breakfast. It's a great presentation when served in a wine or martini glass. I got this recipe from Bon Appetit magazine in 1995.
This stuff disappears at my house in a single afternoon!! It is so simple, but so yummy!! I've never tried it with any other pie filling flavor, but it would probably be just as good with blueberry, etc.
I originally made these at the request of my old chorus director John Kelleher, who also worked at Seattle area Starbucks (I think he'd had the combo in a cookie there, once). I was surprised but very pleased they came out so tasty! These days, these are pretty much the only cookies which are requested and I make on a fairly regular basis.
These are the cutest treat for kids! They look like bears taking a bubble bath! They are delicious and not too messy - so they are easy to take to school/parties. (I came up with the idea after getting tired of taking cupcakes to school and having to deal with the mess!) They are also small enough for young children. Very easy to make when you use refridgerated cookie dough... My son entered these into a dessert contest when he was 5 years old and he won! Too cute!!
A friend brought these to a picnic. After one taste of the warm-from-the-oven cookie, I knew I had to have the recipe. These are now the most requested cookie by my family. The recipe makes a HUGE batch of big cookies, but they do freeze very well. The 5 dozen amount is a guess, I've never counted! We love these and hope you will too!
Even though I don't live in the States anymore all the Americans in my community get together for the 4th of July, and this is what I always bring. It should be made in advance, you need lots of freezing time. Prep time includes freeze time.
Heavenly is all I can say!! I had these cookies on a trip many years ago while staying at a Doubletree Hotel (they left one on each pillow each day after cleaning the rooms) and always thought they were "THE BEST" chocolate chip cookies I had ever eaten! I have searched High and Low for a recipe for anything similar to what I had eaten at the Doubletree and recently found this recipe (unfortunately I can't remember where I got the recipe from)and have made them several times since. They are a little more time-consuming than regular chocolate chip cookies but well worth the extra time! This recipe makes extra large cookies. I'm not sure as to the exact prep time and I don't always chill the dough overnight) From Even More Top Secret Recipes.
A make easy white cake from a mix with pockets of lemon filling. Have not tried this yet, but I hope someone beats me to it because it sounds great! Cook time and servings are estimated; check box for actuals.
This recipe comes from Jan Barley of Evergreen, North Dakota, a reader of Cooking with Paula Deen. This is an easy "dump" cake and couldn't be more tasty. My husband loved this. And yes, it has butter--Paula Deen's favorite ingredient!
