Well, we all knew this day would come... the very last recipe from Baking: From My Home to Yours. I can't believe that after 3 1/2 years of baking with this group that we have finished. That's it. No more Dorie recipes on Tuesdays. I am going to miss this group. I have learned so much and have discovered SO many recipes that I have fallen in love with. Here are some of my faves:
Golden Brioche Loaves (Which I turned into the most AMAZING french toast!)
Quick Classic Berry Tart (My recipe pick when I hosted!)
Banana Cream Pie (SO good!)
Tall & Creamy Cheesecake (I made an eggnog version that was TO DIE FOR!)
Quintuple Chocolate Brownies (5 types of chocolate... need I say more?)
The Most Extraordinary Lemon Cream Tart (The name says it all!)
The very last recipe was chosen by the amazing Dorie Greenspan... kids' thumbprints. They are tiny and filled with goodness. The recipe calls for chunky peanut butter and to roll the dough in nuts. I used smooth peanut butter and rolled the cookies in turbinado sugar. I filled half the cookies with Hershey's kisses and the other half with blueberry jam. They were delicious little cookies!
Dorie Greenspan, thank you for writing such an amazing book that has taught me so much. Thanks for being so involved in our group. Also a huge thank you to Laurie who started the group and to all the others who have helped it along the way. Finally, thanks to all the bakers of the group! Everyone has been so helpful and encouraging along the way. This has been a great ride!!!!
