Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies

This weeks recipe selection for Tuesdays With Dorie is Sour Cream Chocolate Cake Cookies.  That is a really long name for these very simple cookies.  They taste very much like  devils food cake with a little spice added in. I also added in some dried cranberries instead of the raisins.  Please follow Dories suggestion and store them with a layer of wax paper between the layers because they get very sticky after setting overnight.  Thanks to Spike of Spike Bakes for picking this tasty recipe.  I loved the idea of making them into ice cream sandwiches.

Chocolate Biscotti

This weeks  recipe for Tuesdays With Dorie is Chocolate Biscotti and it was chosen by Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes.  It's  rich  with chocolate and  loaded with extras (chocolate chips and chopped almonds). It's crunchy but not quite as crunchy as some of the other biscotti that I have made.  This all adds up for a really great cookie.  Great to pack for all those summer picnics. Enjoy.

Blueberry-Brown Sugar Plain Cake

I love blueberries so, I was super excited when I saw that this weeks selection  for Tuesday's with Dorie was Blueberry-Brown Sugar Plain Cake.  Don't let the name fool you.  This is a wonderful cake.  It is great for breakfast and it also makes a great snack cake.  The brown sugar and blueberries make a great flavor combination. This cake is so good I promise that you won't miss the topping. You need to make this cake while blueberries are in season.  Thanks to Cindy of Everyday Insanity for hosting this week and as always you can find the recipe by checking out her blog. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, this cake is even better the day after it's baked.

Caramel Pots de Creme for Tuesdays With Dorie


Better late than never.  This weeks recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was Caramel Pots de Creme and it was the choice of Peggy the Baker.  These were super delicious.  The first bite gives you a strong sugar taste but the second bite is rich, creamy and caramely.  This was a great pick for the hot weather that we have been having.  Cool and delicious with a little added whipped cream.
