I haven’t been making as many new savory dishes recently, but have been making new baking recipes to try out. After making the World Peace cookies that I just shared, I made other cookie recipes, including this bar you see below.
I had seen these cookies and read about them over and over but never got around to making them. They just seemed not super special. Just a chocolate cookie. And then I saw a video where someone used this recipe to try to mimic an Oreo cookie. That got my attention and so I decided to try these. I ended up making the dough at night after the kids went to sleep and it came together really quickly.
Here we are today with some recipes that I honestly can’t even remember where all of them came from. So, it’s a good chance to show some fails. The successes I tend to remember better, so that’s good for everyone.
Did you read the title? If you did then you can see that I made multiple cakes for the Fudgelet this year. We made rainbow cupcakes for his actual birthday and then his birthday party was a few weeks later. Since his birthday is so close to K’s birthday, we just made a small batch of cupcakes and then made a big cake for K this year (some years I do a smaller cake for K). And I knew the Fudgelet would get more cake at his party.
Let’s start with the cupcakes!
We are all cookie monsters in this family. Well, I’m not sure about the Chiplet yet but since he comes from two cookie monsters, it is likely. I don’t discriminate when it comes to the size of the cookies. So, one big cookie that I just press into a skillet and bake? That sounds great!
But why is this one so special?
When I saw this recipe I was intrigued and excited to find another use for tahini (I often use some of a jar and am left with a random amount). And then I tried to do a little research to find other recipes like this one. I didn’t have much luck. I actually started by trying to find this on the Food Network’s website to see if people reviewed it or talked about it, but nothing. No tips/tricks/warnings. So, I went into it not knowing what to expect.
