Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Triple-chocolate cookies

    • mabeysmom on April 17, 2010

      Made 4/17. Used 1 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp creamy hazelnut extract

  • Orange nutmeg cookies

    • radishseed on June 03, 2019

      Made lemon-thyme cookies by adding lemon thyme and lemon zest and omitting orange zest and nutmeg. Ate with strawberry-rhubarb sorbet.

  • Grand Central Bakery jammers

    • radishseed on June 04, 2019

      Filled with Rhubarb hibiscus compote from "Good to the Grain." A+

  • Peanut butter sandwich cookies

    • PatriciaScarpin on March 17, 2012

      This recipe is delicious - both the cookies and filling are wonderful. But there was some filling left, I believe that 3/4 of the filling recipe would be enough to fill the cookies.

  • Cranberry orange pecan bread

    • nadiam1000 on November 24, 2020

      Delicious and moist texture - not too sweet with enough orange flavor but not overwhelming. I baked in 9 x 5 loaf pans and the loaves baked up a bit short and flat on top. Next time I would bake in a slight smaller loaf pan to get better height and maybe a crack on top.

  • Popovers

    • okmosa on August 02, 2015

      The recipe is perfect except they stuck. Maybe I didn't heat the pan enough or didn't use enough butter.

  • Clafouti

    • okmosa on July 10, 2016

      2016-07-09 I think I've made better clafoutis recipes. Not sure about the blender instead if whisking, not letting batter sit 10 mins, or the sugar on top.
