Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Oatmeal sandwich cookies with creamy peanut butter filling

    • bwhip on January 15, 2019

      Brought a batch of these to the office and they were a HUGE hit. Very much like the famous Girl Scout peanut butter sandwich cookies. Great texture and flavor - you can either have them a little chewy, or crispy, or both, depending on baking time. Filling was just a touch on the sweet side for my taste, but my coworkers thought they were one of their all-time favorites.

  • Black sesame brown sugar shortbread

    • puddlemere on January 29, 2018

      Delicious and a nice variation on shortbread, although they didn't hold their shape as well as in the photo. I wonder if I should have refrigerated the cut cookies for a bit before baking.

  • Peanut butter cream pie

    • HalfSmoke on May 26, 2018

      My daughter made this, so this note is about the eating, not the making. The peanut butter cream filling is perfect and fluffy. The candy and pretzel bits are a nice touch. A winner.

  • Double the chocolate cake

    • Smokeydoke on March 12, 2018

      Another winner from Joy the Baker. Perfect chocolate cake base. Frosting was, as she writes, "wonky" but it wasn't bad. There's a definite sour note to it from the sour cream. But it is a dream to spread. Photo included.

  • Chocolate-peanut butter pretzel layer cake

    • southerncooker on November 09, 2014

      I made this one for my daughter's birthday and it was a hit. Delicious and beautiful.

  • Salted peanut butter buttercream frosting

    • southerncooker on November 08, 2018

      This frosting is so good. I've made the pretzel cake from the cover of the book twice from this book with this frosting on it for daughter's birthdays and we all love it. I also made her a chocolate one year with this frosting, also delicious. This year she requested Christy Jordan's Peanut Butter cake with this frosting. Another hit.

  • Under-baked chocolate chip skillet cake

    • Fawndarellabakes on August 17, 2018

      Not a fan of this one. Weird grainy texture like there is too much flour vs. sugar. I love my butter but this is too much butter, it leaves a coating on the tongue that isn't pleasant. Greasy. I cooked it 10 min longer then the recommended 18 min because it was so jiggly. The underbaked part seemed raw not underbaked.

  • Cookie no-dough ice cream

    • HalfSmoke on February 24, 2018

      Good. Not as creamy as hoped.

Publishers Text

Joy Wilson believes that everything is better with pie. And caramel. And definitely ice cream. Her world is pretty sweet: she dabbles daily in butter and sugar as her blogging alter ego, Joy the Baker. Her new book, Joy the Baker Homemade Decadence, is packed with 125 of Joy’s favorite, super easy, most over-the-top, totally delicious treats, such as Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, and Smoked Sea Salt Cookies; Butterscotch Cream Pie with Thyme-Marshmallow Meringue; Mint Chocolate Chip Cake; and Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. After all, every day is an opportunity for sweets.
