Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

Recommended Posts

The inside is  cookie and cake crumbs , it has to be a blend of that and then powdered sugar, cocoa , arrack  and butter, then rolled into marzipan and then dipped into chocolate.

Most often it is flavoured with essences and sometimes  they use other liqueur flavours.   I have gotten a blueberry one   and a lingon one when the  Crown princess got married.

I'm the designated 'snack person' for the upcoming local gourd retreat.  To that end I have begun making items, starting with Kerry Beal's  Quick Bread Recipes, taken from The Kitchen.  On the left is the Variation #1: Cranberry-Walnut; on the right is Variation #4: Blueberry Loaf.  Both taste very good.  DH says butter goes on both loaf, and for the Cranberry Loaf?  Old Cheddar, of course.

 

Thanks, Kerry.

Then add

Stir with a spoon until mixed.

 

Grease butter and dust  with flour  8- 9 inch pie tin. Pour in  the batter  and  add one  of this toppings.

 

Plain:

Cinnamon

1 tablespoon of  cinnamon

Kerry Beal's Quick Bread Recipes, Cranberry-Walnut version, was received with such enthusiasm at the Gourd Retreat that I was stupefied.  Well, I guess I'm gonna make that one again.

Anna, are they crispy cookies?

I would call them crispy-chewy. They are not shatteringly crisp but definitely have some snap to them.

Browned Butter Toffee Blondies. Inclusions were Skor toffee bits, Butterscotch chips and chopped walnuts. That browned butter taste really comes through and as a bonus my house now smells of browned butter!

Hmm. I may have to give blondies another try. Those look irresistable.

I think they would be outstanding without any inclusions (a la Kerry Beal). That browned butter doesn't need any help flavour-wise.

Caramel Apple bars.

These were very well received according to reports. Sorry that the photos are not a little clearer.

Chocolate chip cookies from Fine Cooking. I read my way all through the eG chocolate chip cookie bake off but in the end returned to this tried and trusted recipe. This is the first batch straight from the oven. Some will go to the meeting people, some will go with my granddaughter for her lunch box and some will go home with my adult son.
