This chocolate cake is absolutely thee best we have ever had. It is so moist and rich, I never make anything else (unless I am short on time :) The frosting recipe included goes perfectly with this cake, but you can use any frosting you like. Try this once and you'll see why I call it "The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need"!! Adding 2/18/06: I want to note that I recently used sweetened whipped heavy cream with vanilla and it was just as fabulous as the frosting recipe listed, plus much easier. I also used hazelnut coffee in the cake and it added even more of a little extra something!
I know... Not ANOTHER chocolate chip cookie recipe... BUT, you'll find that these are sheer perfection, large bakery-style, thick and chewy, cookies that taste as good as they look with a fool-proof set of instructions. It was pointed out to me that this recipe is from Baking Illustrated, perhaps so as I wrote down the ingredients from a morning show years ago! Thanks for letting me know.
I was never a huge sugar cookie fan until I went to a local bakery and bit into one of their frosted sugar cookies. It had a fudgy texture that complimented the harder frosting and sprinkles on top. So good! I've been on a hunt for such a cookie since. I haven't found the frosting yet, but here's a great cookie that delivers on texture and taste!
Every Wednesday The Montreal Gazette posts recipes according to the theme of the week or recipe requests that readers ask for. This is a recipe request, and it is from American chocolate company, Ghiradelli. I have made and ate this recipe and is decidedly very good.
These cookies resemble oatmeal cookies, but they are crispier and have a unique taste. They don't contain any wheat, gluten, common headache triggers, milk or eggs. They're a nice treat for someone on a restrictive diet like mine, but I think they'll appeal to others too. (It didn't take long for my husband to ask for a second one, and he can eat anything.) I've only made this recipe at high altitude (5200 feet), so you'll have to test my low altitude suggestions.
Generally my response to non-chocolate candy is "what's the point?" This, however, has become my favorite Christmas candy! My daughter found it in one of those Pillsbury/Betty Crocker booklets they tempt you with at the checkout stands. Prep time does not include cooling time.
This is one of my all time favorite WW recipes. I serve it to company all of the time, and no one ever guesses its low fat! I have used ravioli instead of pierogies and have added ham for variation. Recipe as written is 5 points.
When I first fixed dinner for my father in law, he put this in his mouth and just sit there, I had no idea, I thought he wanted to spit it out, but once he swallowed it, he said he loved it and just wanted to hold it in his mouth. This was his very favorite, and everyone loves this. The cream cheese layer is sometimes hard to spread, I use the back of a large spoon and run cold water over it. Prep time includes 4 hours in the fridge before serving.
The generous amount of Peanut Butter makes these bars taste rich and creamy, the banana keeps it *ultra* moist and takes on a mellow background flavor, and the oatmeal holds it all together PLUS some chocolate thrown in for good measure :) These are better the next day, don't contain eggs or flour, and are a good way to use up some ripe bananas!
