Flourless Edible Cookie Dough

Do you like cookies, but don’t have an oven or don’t want to take the time to wait for the cookies to cook?

A Piece of Cake

I’ve been celebrating a lot of family birthdays lately – five, to be precise – and we’re only three months into 2013! With every celebration, we always have a sweet ending: cake from a local bakery or homemade desserts. Here are the different kinds of cake that I’ve been enjoying.
 

We celebrated my grandma’s birthday in early January, and her favorite cake comes from Eldo Cake House in Boston’s Chinatown. Eldo’s signature cake is a yellow sponge cake that is spread with sweet whipped cream and filled with assorted fruits (strawberries, mangoes, peaches, and kiwis). They also sell small individual servings …

 

Carrot Cupcakes

I’m a little obsessed with cupcakes – baking, decorating, and of course, eating these cute morsels. Even though cupcakes seem to be fading from the trendy sweets race, they’re still one of my favorite desserts. I remember when I first became interested in baking during college… I was too intimidated to even attempt following a Martha Stewart recipe. Instead, I’d always reach for a box of Pillsbury cake mix, a red-colored container of Betty Crocker‘s pre-made frosting, and a tube of rainbow sprinkles. Let’s just say that I’ve come a long way these past few years, but I’m still no expert. Now, I …

 

S’mores Cookies

With school already in session, halloween candy stocked on the shelves, and cooler mornings and nights creeping in, it sure feels like summer is coming to an end. This past Labor Day weekend, we had a cookout, which will probably be the last one for the year (at least at my house, that is). No more cookouts means no more toasting marshmallows over the grill to make s’mores treats. Of course, there’s always the microwave, but it’s never the same.
For those not familiar with what a s’mores concoction is: it’s a traditional snack/dessert (typically served at a cookout or campfire) that …

 

Oatmeal & White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Once a month, I bake sweets and bring them to work to share with my coworkers. Shhh, they don’t know it, but they’re my guinea pigs, since the treats that I bring are usually from a new recipe that I’ve never tried before. Of course, if the results aren’t to my liking, then I don’t share them.
This week, I made oatmeal and white chocolate chip cookies, recipe adapted from ericasweettooth‘s blog, original recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. They are a little different from traditional oatmeal cookies; they’re thin, crispy, made with *white* chocolate chips and have a salty finish. It is …

 

Cutest Cookie Sandwiches

This week at Boston Bakes everyone is putting their best dessert forward. From cakes, cookies, pies and more, I decided to join the trend and talk about a gadget that will make some real tasty desserts, and it will take only minutes!

Summer is well on it’s way and as I’m daydreaming of long days at the beach I can’t help but think about the ice cream truck that will soon be ringing it’s bell for all the kids to hear. Ice cream cookie sandwiches were always one of my favorite treats from the ice cream truck. The Cuisipro Mini …

 

Presidents like desserts too!

Since Monday is Presidents’ Day, I thought it would be appropriate to focus today’s blog on our fearless leaders, past and present. Don’t worry, this post will not be a long history lesson. Instead, I’ve done a little research on some of the desserts that famous presidents have eaten and enjoyed.

 

Let’s start with our current and 44th president, Barack Obama. Did you know that Mr. President loves peach cobbler, specifically the one served at Dixie Kitchen and Bait Shop in Chicago? Here is a video of his rave review back in 2001. Cobbler is a fruity dessert baked with a top crust that’s made of batter, …
