Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Butterscotch brownies

    • Lindacakes on July 29, 2011

      A favorite since childhood. Add one cup of pecans to up the ante. Perfect every time I make them, chewy and buttery.

  • Mary's sugar cookies

    • sarahcooks on September 11, 2012

      My family has used this recipe for over 30 years. Every time I tried someone else's sugar cookies I was always disappointed because ours were so much better. Try these with an almond flavored buttercream (milk, powdered sugar, butter, and almond extract).

  • Toffee squares

    • hjm on December 16, 2013

      These are really delicious. The Silver Palate toffee bar recipe is very similar, but uses semi-sweet chocolate for the topping, which I think adds a nice counterpoint to the sweetness of the base. I love milk chocolate, but I find it a bit too sweet here.

    • Lindacakes on July 29, 2011

      These are very good, the base crust has a nice brown butter flavor. Use good chocolate.
