I can whip up a seven-tier wedding cake, bake shortcake for 1000 and create a menu full of $20 dollar desserts but nothing brings ‘em running like the smell of simple chocolate cookies.
Here’s a batch of chocolaty cookies that are so good, they won’t even ask where the chips are.
Nothing says summer like a batch of warm freshly baked shortcakes drenched with fresh local strawberries and topped with whipped cream. This particular recipe for my gold standard shortcakes is surprisingly easy to make, all you really need to do is stir some cream into some flour and bake away. And there’s lots of room for improv when you’re making shortcake!
Commercial chocolate sauces are a pale imitation of the real thing and usually don’t include any real chocolate. An old-school batch of real chocolate sauce is easy to make, easy to use and an easy way to saturate any treat with lots of rich, true, chocolate flavour. Try not to eat too much of this sauce straight out of the jar!
My favourite dessert is a thick slice of just-baked pie, with apples fresh from our local orchard, and still warm from the oven. But I’m always careful to save a thick wedge because I believe apple pie is at its best the next morning for breakfast. I prefer an easy-to-make butter pastry crust. Its secret is frozen butter, which adds flavour and is much easier than shortening to “cut” into the flour.
Here’s a chewy tropical treat that’s so easy to make you’ll think you’re forgetting something! I always make a big batch so there’s a lot to share but it’s just as easy to cut the recipe in half. Your family and friends will love the addictive chewy texture and you’ll love how easy they are to make!
This classic sauce turns anything into instant dessert with its deep caramel flavour. Every time I transform bland white sugar into rich, slightly bitter caramel I get excited. I think it’s magical how much flavour a simple cooking process can add! Your family will too.
