The honey rolls I made for yesterday’s Thanksgiving dinner.
Can I just say that there’s no way those circles on that website are only 3” because my first batch were 3” (okay, technically 2 3/4” since I used my largest biscuit cutter) and nowhere near large enough to contain barely a teaspoon of filling, as you can see. I mean, they are still tasty, even though I baked instead of fried (15 minutes at 350F), but use something like a red plastic cup, which is also larger than 3” if you want these not to ooze all over.
Anyway, other than that, they are really easy and taste good. Next time, maybe cinnamon sugar instead of plain.
cream cheese chocolate chip cookies. Easy and tasty!
blueberry vanilla cream turnovers. Sadly, mine are lopsidedly rectangular rather than triangular like good turnovers should be. But they were really easy (I used Pillsbury puff pastry) and they smell good, so…I guess I can’t complain.
This evening, I made one hour skillet focaccia and not only was it just as easy as the recipe suggests, it’s just as delicious.
I made Cherry Cinnamon Sugar Roll-ups last night, though I actually made them with blueberries. they were really easy to make and taste good. Sorry about the terrible picture. Let’s pretend that flash glare is actually intentional ~lens flare~.
has anyone made lobster tails (the pastry, not the shellfish)? That was my nephew’s request in terms of a birthday baked good, and I’ve never made them and all I hear is that they are difficult to make. (And also, apparently, they are not the same as sfogliatelle? I thought they were. Oops?) Any tips, tricks, or recipes?
I didn’t make them for the beach, but since they’re so easy, I made them this morning: blondies. They’re nicely gooey in the center, too.
Today, I made Chocolate Kahlua pie. I used Oreos for the crust instead of chocolate wafers, but otherwise I mostly followed the directions. It’s really tasty, but very sweet. I might have to give some away.
ice cream (I am cheating with this, since it covers many, many different things), the aforementioned blueberry crumb bars are always a winner, the mini-cheesecakes, fig cookies (aka, cucidati, though no one else loves them like I love them), and chocolate pudding
Um… technically I’ve never made the fruity/granola-y type of breakfast bar? But of the bar-type desserts I’ve made for breakfast over the years, I love blueberry crumb bars (these in particular though these are good, as well, and half the amount ), this raspberry lemon slice has been my favorite to make this summer, and there’s also an orange bars recipe I’ve made that was really impressive, but since it was from Paula Deen, I think it’s disappeared from the internets.
I’ve made other bars - and I’m not including brownies (or blondies, which I haven’t made but hope to soon) - but these are the ones that really impressed me.
I have the Cuisinart 1.5 quart ice cream maker, and I got it on sale for $40 and it is, honestly, one of the best things I’ve ever bought. It’s easy to use, the recipes that come with it are a great starting point, it doesn’t take up a lot of space, and I’ve always been happy with it. I actually bought one for my parents when the (much more expensive) KitchenAid version I’d previously bought for them didn’t work. I really love ice cream, so I use it a lot.
taking a short break from my frantic reblogging of Cap 2 Comic Con stuff, here are pictures of the chocolate and vanilla pudding pie I made last night for a fangirl gathering I went to this evening. I used a premade graham cracker crust instead of a chocolate one, but other than that, I followed the recipe and it was really easy. I chose it so I wouldn’t have to put the oven on in the heat.
I had a windfall of blueberries this weekend, so I made blueberry crumb bars for myself and then this cake with lemon/blueberry instead of orange/cranberry. It’s very good - I made it last weekend too. I still have more blueberries, so maybe a crumble or a crisp for the fourth? I don’t know…
