Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Big O cookies

    • hirsheys on November 16, 2017

      These were very good - I used tart cherries and would again.

  • Lemon poppy seed coffee cake

    • anya_sf on August 18, 2018

      I only had half the sour cream, so I used part whole milk Greek yogurt, which worked fine. I substituted 1 tsp lemon extract and zest of 2 lemons for the lemon oil, and there seemed to be enough lemon flavor, although I am curious to try the oil. The cake was everything I'd hoped for - a classic. I loved that it was absolutely full of poppy seeds.

  • Ginger scones

    • hirsheys on November 16, 2017

      These are exactly perfect - an immediate taste memory. They are easy to make and taste just like the ones from the Bakehouse. My only complaint - mine were a bit more crumbly than the ones I remember.

  • Detroit-style pizza

    • anya_sf on August 19, 2018

      The dough was pretty wet, so it didn't really hold a round shape after the stated kneading time, but I was able to scrape it together. It took some coaxing to stretch into the pan; it might benefit from a longer rest, although if you just keep trying, the dough will eventually stretch into the pan. I used a traditional dark Detroit pizza pan, which yields the best crust and browned edges. Eight slices of pepperoni did not seem like enough - I made 3 rows of 5 slices. There is possibly more cheese than necessary, although it's oh so good. The pizza was delicious, but I do think the pepperoni kind of gets lost when it's underneath. I prefer the Serious Eats recipe where half the pepperoni is on top. Overall, this recipe is fairly similar to Serious Eats, but I had better luck with this crust, possibly because I used a stand mixer instead of a food processor.

  • Ginger jump-up cookies

    • hirsheys on November 16, 2017

      These came out very tasty and improved everyday. Very similar to the ones I remember from the Bakehouse. My one mistake was in not sifting the muscovado sugar into the mixture - the lumps never broke up.
