Notes about Recipes in this book

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • Chocolate chip cookies

    • sarahkalsbeek on January 12, 2020

      Hard to get better than this classic. We use butter instead of shortening and sprinkle Maldon sea salt on top before baking. Best when made after the dough has been refrigerated overnight.

  • Ginger creams

    • dwager on December 24, 2020

      I made these when I wanted a gingerbread taste without the rolling, cutting, and decorating. This is a nice soft cookie with a good flavor.
