Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chocolate chip cookies

    • Emily Hope on October 10, 2020

      This is the pan-banging version in the book. First time I'd tried the method, and it worked pretty well although didn't result in quite as pronounced ridges as shown in the photos and online. Pretty standard chewy-crispy chocolate chip recipe otherwise--good flavor but not the best I've ever had. These are also GIANT. Fun project with the pod kids. Didn't keep especially well.

  • Snickerdoodles 2

    • Emily Hope on October 10, 2020

      This is the pan-banging version. Found the flavor of these to be quite good (better for type than the chocolate chip pan-banger), and I also appreciate that they don't call for any shortening as many snickerdoodles do. My only change was to add a little salt to the cinnamon/sugar mix. One friend remarked that they looked just like they came out of a bakery. The dough is pretty soft so it's a little hard to roll the balls in the sugar, but it's fine if they aren't perfectly round. Very large -- make sure to leave the specified room on the pan. I baked these a little too long so they were more crispy than chewy -- will cut back a bit on the time next time. Will definitely be a repeat.

  • Toasted sesame cookies

    • Astrid5555 on September 27, 2020

      These are fantastic for grown-ups. My first time making pan-banging cookies, was quite impressed how the process delivers! These cookies are definite keepers.

    • cadfael on October 19, 2020

      Very good. Watch times to not overcook. Will repeat

  • Neapolitan cookies

    • Astrid5555 on October 27, 2020

      These look impressive and taste excellent. I am impressed at how easy it is to add strawberry flavor to cookies by just crushing up some freeze-dried strawberries. I slightly underbaked my first batch at 10 minutes, so left the next batches in for a little longer and it worked.

  • Smore’s blondies

    • Astrid5555 on September 04, 2020

      I slightly overbaked the blondie part of the recipe which resulted in a very crunchy bottom. My first time making marshmallows. Halfway through the process I was scared that I had messed up when my marshmallow batter turned into a liquid soup while whipping in the mixer. However, everything worked out beautifully in the end, thanks also to the clear instructions. A small slice goes a long way, but eating these blondies is kind of addictive. Very happy kids at home!

  • My favorite brownies

    • Astrid5555 on October 29, 2020

      These are delicious and very quick to make, a definite repeat.

    • bwhip on September 22, 2020

      These are excellent brownies. Nicely chewy, caramelized edges, and wonderful chocolate flavor. I think the combination of chocolate and cocoa, butter and oil, is a winner.

  • Double chocolate espresso cookies

    • bwhip on September 14, 2020

      These were great. The brown butter and espresso give them a wonderful depth of flavor. The little bit of extra crunch (and flavor) from the cocoa nibs made them even that much better. Baking them for about 9.5 minutes made them perfectly soft in the middle with a crispy edge for us. We'll make these again.

  • Chocolate basil brownies

    • Jviney on September 02, 2020

      Pro: these are a delicious brownie and the basil brings a really lovely herbal note. Several guessed it was mint, and it’s a refreshing add. My husband immediately went back for seconds, and both adults and kids enjoyed them. Con: I struggled to get these done over the course of ten hours with a crabby three year old singing in my kitchen. The cooling to room temp x2 and the chilling for one hour x3...it’s just a lot of steps and I’m not 100% sure the payoff is there, as enjoyable as they are.

  • White chocolate brownies with toasted sesame caramel

    • Jviney on October 24, 2020

      These are very good. The white chocolate brownie base pairs well with and balanced the sesame caramel. My caramel was smoking and golden before the recommended 350 degrees, so I pulled it from the heat. After chilling and cutting the brownies, the caramel did run down the sides and puddle around them so probably wise to heed the author’s advice to cut them right before serving.

  • Cinnamon roll blondies

    • taste24 on September 15, 2020

      There were 3 different steps to make these wonderful bars, and totally worth it. The browned butter blondie batter alone is so good! They are reminiscent of cinnamon roll flavors and I absolutely loved them. Will be making over and over.

  • Lemon oat bars

    • taste24 on September 21, 2020

      These were a delight to make. Simple filling and easy crust. I loved the creamy lemon flavor and the oat topping to balance the richness.

  • Banana crunch blondies

    • sarahfrizzank on October 16, 2020

      Does the measurement for vanilla extract seem a bit high to anyone else?
