S’more pie

S’more pie
A year ago, I made s’mores from scratch and brought them to the Memorial Day barbecue on my friend Jocelyn’s roof, celebrating the thousands of other hottie uniformed types that had sailed in for Fleet Week. [I just spelled that "Weak." It's all so telling, innit?] We assembled them from Nancy Silverton’s graham crackers from the La Brea Bakery cookbook, as featured on 101 Cookbooks, [which were, incidentally the most accurately-flavored homemade graham crackers I've baked, much closer that the ones I'd attempted a couple years ago from Retro Desserts] and Thomas Keller’s marshmallows, as featured on Cooking for Engineers, and packed them up with skewers for toasting and giant bars of Hershey’s milk chocolate (exactly what we used in summer camp). Second only to the men in uniform, they were the hit of the party. And then I never told you about them, because I forgot to take pictures of the finished product. I was dead wrong on each concern. One year ago: Zucchini Carpaccio Salad

The Best Chocolate Cake The Best Chocolate Cake is combines cocoa and coffee to create a chocolate lover’s dream. The rich buttercream frosting makes it perfect! We’re a family that loves to double down on chocolate. Mini Pumpkin Pies in a Muffin Tin I love to bake in muffin tins. They are cute, bite-sized, and cook up so much faster. I’ve shared Muffin Tin Meatloaves and Pop Up Pancakes in Muffin Tins. Today, I’ve baked cute mini pumpkin pies in a muffin tin. They make for perfect individual portions.

Candy and Caramel Apple Pie So sorry. I wanted to, I did. But I didn’t have a torch. So I thought about using the broiler method, and was going to do it Monday for dessert. Alas, during my baking for the cafe I used all of the heavy cream and had none to make said creme brulee. Cookie Dough Brownies I’m pretty sure that my main reason for baking so much is the raw cookie dough/brownie batter/pie crust. Why does food taste so much more decadent and yummy before you put it in the oven and kill all of the salmonella? Weird, man. I’m actually not a fan of salmonella, like, at all.

Billie’s Italian Cream Cake Recipe Dear Sweet Billie From My Church kindly shared her Italian Cream Cake recipe with me today. And now, because you’re equally dear and sweet, I’m sharing it with you. I’ll bake you one soon with lots of detailed photos, but for now I’ll just revel in the leftovers and simply share the recipe—which really speaks for itself. If you’ve never listened to me before, and I wouldn’t blame you if you haven’t, please listen to me now: You want to make this cake. Thank you, Billie! Fruity Pebble Cupcakes Recipe Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees (F). Mix the butter and sugar together at medium speed for about 90 seconds, until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until creamy. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl so everything gets combined. Add the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and vanilla and mix until the batter is smooth.

Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts with maple glaze I didn’t know Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts existed before I thought them up and went running to my kitchen. Turns out they do exist… and they existed all over my kitchen counter before they stopped existing because I ate them all. Ok. Not true. S'more Cookie Bars These were a huge hit! Keith, Andrew, and Kramer all ate at least two of these the other night. I brought some into work, too, and they quickly disappeared. Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries These cheesecake stuffed strawberries are the perfect dessert treat! Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries….how have I not made these before?! I’m serious. They are amazing! Snickerdoodle Bread I about died when my mom tried out this new recipe for Snickerdoodle Bread. She found the recipe from Barbara Bakes and made a few modifications. It was a huge hit!!

Banana Cream Pie with Salty Bourbon Caramel Peanut Crust Preheat oven to 350°. Pulse peanuts in a food processor until coarsely ground. Oreo Truffles 1. Crush the Oreos (pretty much the whole package, minus a handful, will do) until finely ground. A food processor does the best job, but if you don't have one, throw the cookies in a ziploc bag, grab a rolling pin, and go to town. 2. Transfer 3 cups of the Oreo crumbs to a bowl and add the cream cheese.
