  1. Browned Butter Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream.
  2. Did you use bread flour? Did you weigh the flour? I didn't do anything different - however, the dough did rest in the fridge for about 48 hours before I baked the cookies.
  3. I made the Confetti Cookies with the birthday cake crumbs not too long ago - they were so good!
  4. Pretty much - there is no topping "one" in your list. After the cheesecake is baked and cooled, the top was just finished with walnuts and the drizzle of chocolate!
  5. Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake I made today for treat day at the office tomorrow. I did use walnuts as I had more of them on hand then I did pecans! Vanilla wafer/walnut crust, a caramel layer followed by a chocolate cheesecake batter on top.
  6. I live in MN and used to shop at one of their local B&M stores - they sadly went out of business late fall of '08.
  7. Thanks Kim! Nothing too dramatic, I just swapped out half of the molasses for golden syrup.
  8. Thanks! It was a modified version of Alton Browns recipe. No real tricks - we scored/cut the dough into squares before baking and they easily snapped apart once cool.
  9. I made this Chocolate Ripple Coffee Cake from Carole Walters last week for a treat day - outrageously good. Some homemade graham crackers we made yesterday for snacking.
  10. We made the Cinnamon Squares the other day, but used the Cappuccino variation. Good stuff!
  11. Here are a couple treats I've made in the last few days... Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies with Heath Bars and Pecans White Chocolate-Raspberry Cheesecake Bars
  12. We've been making those rolo pretzels for a few years - they are always a hit! Instead of the pecans, we use holiday M&Ms or those Kissables candies. Here's a shot of ours from last year. Here's a fun miniature treat I made to send into the office today. Chocolate Cherry Brownie Bites - small brownies, split in half, filled with a whipped white chocolate/cream mixture with a few extra maraschino cherries folded in.
  13. For the treat I made to send into the office this week, we made these Sweet Miniature Sliders - silly and whimsical, they were a bit hit! Vanilla wafers make the buns, the patty is a mixture of crushed vanilla wafers, confectioners' sugar, melted bittersweet chocolate and a little milk. Tinted coconut for the lettuce with gel colors making up the ketchup and mustard. A little melted butter on the top wafer worked well to glue on some sesame seeds!
  14. I made some Butterscotch Snack Cakes a couple days ago - the cake section was tender, moist and had a nice tight crumb. The frosting was flavored with butterscotch chips - pretty reminiscent to those snack cakes made by TastyKake. I've never had one myself, but I'm told it was pretty close... the one difference was the frosting was not as fluffy.
  15. Lisa - We really don't have much of a fancy set up at all. Our camera is an older Kodak P850. Most of our photo's are taken right before we eat, so they are usually at night and done inside. Some of the desserts are taken during the day though and then we can utilize the extra light. We don't have a mini studio set up, but we do use a couple flexible white boards are a couple small desk lights.
