How to Avoid a Spreading Cookies < Cooking Tips and Cooking Questions Answered Result: Sad gingerbread men. Baking holiday cookies can go from a labor of love to an exercise in frustration when your gingerbread men come out more bloated than a Macy's parade float. The problem is too much heat—but not at the baking stage, at the mixing stage: Your butter is too warm. The solution: Keep your butter cool, right until baking. Butter starts to melt at 68°, and once that happens, its water-fat emulsion breaks and there's no getting it back. If the butter is still cold to the touch but spreadable, you can start creaming.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Chocolate cake and I have had a very interesting romance. I started off with quite an intense dislike of chocolate cake. I KNOW. But try not to judge me too harshly, I had many bad experiences with store-bought dry, dense mudcakes covered in grainy baking chocolate icing. So every year when I asked Regex Man what cake he would like for his birthday and every year he replied me with "Chocolate So this year for Regex Man's birthday I offered to do a chocolate cake even though he said it didn't have to be chocolate this year. I used David Lebovitz's devil's food cake recipe again, my new favourite chocolate cake since making it for my raspberry cupcakes when I launched the new site. Originally I was going to arrange the scoops of icing around the edge of the cake, but I realised I didn't have quite enough icing to do that so I ended up just doing a few of them in the middle. Mint Chocolate Chip Cake Mix together the coffee and milk. Happy Birthday Regex Man!

Pumpkin Cupcakes With Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting I couldn't believe my eyes this week when I saw the ad for Pumpkin Spice Lattes in my local Starbucks. Pumpkin Spice already? But there's still a little more summer to be had, isn't there? Of course, it was impossible to stay upset for too long; after all, this is lovely pumpkin -- one of my favorite flavors of all time -- that we're talking about! So, I ransacked my pumpkin-flavored recipes to find this one for Pumpkin Cupcakes. You'll recognize that it's a classic, but the cinnamon in the Cream Cheese Frosting gives it a little something extra.

Banana Caramel Cupcakes Banana Caramel Cupcakes Banana Caramel Cupcakes ~ If you love bananas, banana bread and caramel sauce, you will go crazy for this cupcake that masquerades as a cake. Banana Caramel Cupcakes I made this just a few weeks ago and did not have any luck keeping them around. We ended up eating them all before they could be photographed. This time around I gorged on three of these little babies straight out of the oven and set aside a few for the family, then hid the rest to photograph. Subtly sweet and flavorful on its own, my family enjoys these Banana Caramel Cupcakes undressed and plain, as much as they liked them filled and frosted. In fact, we love this recipe so much I no longer make banana bread. A few notes: Make two batches as this recipe does not do well doubled up.The tops will flatten out slightly as they cool.For a variation, I sometimes throw in bittersweet chocolate bits.For the caramel sauce try my homemade version. {Printer Version} Yields 12 cupcakes Bake at 350 F. Ingredients: 1.

GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND BAKE!: PASTRY Last night, I decided to make one of my favorite cookies. These little pastry swirls are so delish! I usually use my favorite pie crust recipe, which I have previously posted, but I decided to try a pastry recipe by the Barefoot Contessa. This recipe calls for lots of butter! Pastry: 2 cups all purpose flour 1/4 cup granulated or superfine sugar 1/2 tsp. kosher salt 1/2 pound (2 sticks) COLD unsalted butter, diced Directions: Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Divide your dough into two equal parts. Keep one half covered in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator. About 1/8" thick I still have some rolling to do! You can use any jam or preserves that you like. I used Strawberry Huckleberry jam. Don't use too much, or it will be difficult to roll, but don't be stingy either! Roll up jelly roll style. Don't roll too tightly, or all the jelly will roll right on out! Be generous!

Cast Sugar: Pink Lemonade Cupcakes I found this recipe at Daisycake's blog, and just had to try them. I baked up the cupcakes Thursday night, which I am very glad I did (more on that in another post). Such a pretty pale pink cake, only a pretty-princess-pink lemonade buttercream would do for frosting them. Pink Lemonade Cupcakes Ingredients: 1 c. all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. baking soda Pinch salt 1/2 c. granulated sugar 1/4 c. vegetable oil 2 egg whites 1/3 c. thawed frozen Pink Lemonade Concentrate 1/4 c. buttermilk 2 or more drops red food coloring Preheat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, oil, egg whites and lemonade concentrate. Scoop batter into liners (fill about three-fourths full). Lemonade Buttercream: 3 c. + 3 Tbsp. confectioner’s sugar 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature 1/8 tsp. salt 2 Tbsp. pink lemonade concentrate Red food coloring

Pumpkin Chocolate Pudding By Lauren Zembron, on October 4th, 2011 I love every recipe I post on HFFL, (they’re my little food babies), but every once in a while I come up with something that is really special; something that I know I will make over and over again. One such recipe was my Chocolate Ganache Pudding that I posted back in July. Rich & chocolatey, lusciously smooth & thick, fudgey pudding. SO. I’ve made that pudding several times over the past three months, but decided to put an autumnal spin on the base recipe in celebration of my favorite seasonal ingredient: yep, pumpkin. Half of the avocado called for in the original recipe is swapped out for pumpkin puree, a generous amount of pumpkin pie spice takes the place of the espresso powder & some of the cocoa powder, and maple extract joins the vanilla extract for an extra boost of flavor. The resulting pudding is just as silky (though a bit lighter) as its predecessor, but with the added flavor kick of warm pumpkin pie spices. You can thank me later.

Banana Split Cupcakes Banana Split Cupcakes ~ It’s been what, a little over 30 days since I posted a cupcake, so of course I went crazy with dipping, rimming, stuffing and stacking this Banana Split Cupcake with all kinds of cupcakey goodness. Banana Split Cupcakes Remember these Banana Split Bites stuffed with ice cream from last year? It’s actually the same banana cream custard I used in this Mini Banana Cream Pie recipe. By now, I’m sure you’re beginning to sense that I have a deep, serious love for anything banana flavored. Until then, I hope you love this riff on a banana split dessert recipe as much as I do. A few notes: Advance preparation: The banana cream custard filling can be prepared up to a day in advance. Banana Split Cupcakes Adapted from Magnolia’s Vanilla Cupcake | Makes 20-24 cupcakes Preparation: Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Ingredients: Cupcakes: Banana Cream Custard Filling: Classic Vanilla Buttercream Frosting: Instructions: 1. 2. 1. 1. Chocolate Dipping Sauce: 1. To assemble: 1. 2.
