TWD Devilish Shortcakes

I hope that eveyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of great food and time spent with family.  My family said that the food was the best ever. I admit that it was a little hard to get back in the kitchen after all that cooking but this weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was an easy one.  Devilish Shortcake was the choice of Tania of Love Big, Bake Often.  I served mine with fresh rasphberries and whipped cream.  I think that they would be great with vanilla ice cream and a hot fudge sauce.

TWD Rewind

This week to make things a little easier for the holidays, Tuesdays with Dorie is a rewind.  This is where you get to pick a recipe that has already been made by the group.  I have been a part of the group for two years but I still have several recipes to catch up on.  I decided to go back to the recipe that started it all, Brown Sugar-Pecan Shortbread Cookies. These cookies were a great choice for a busy Thanksgiving week.  They are easy to make and delicious to eat. If you would like to try these great cookies you can find the recipe on page 127 of Baking From My Home to Yours.  I hope that everyone has a great Thanksgiving.

TWD Cranberry Lime Galette

This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie is Cranberry Lime Galette and it was chosen by Whitney, April, and Elizabeth of Celestial Confections.  I'm not all that fond of cranberries so I almost skipped this recipe but I'm very glad that I decided on making it.  Cranberry, apple and lime make a very interesting flavor combination.  Surround it all with Dorie's wonderful pie crust and you have a winner.

Peanuttiest Blondies for TWD

This weeks recipe choice for Tuesdays with Dorie is Peanuttiest Blondies and it was the pick of Nicole of Bakeologie. This is a quick and easy recipe for a bar cookie that has peanut butter, chopped peanuts and chocolate chips added in. These are very much like a favorite cookie that was served in our high school cafeteria.  They simply called them peanut butter bars, and we all loved them.  Years later when I went back to work at that same school, the lunch ladies would send us some warm from the oven. Yum.  It pays to be nice to the lunch ladies.
