This recipe for Chocolate Crème Sandwiches is the first one I’m making out of Dorie Greenspan’s newest cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies with the Tuesdays with Dorie bake-along group.

Dorie Greenspan’s new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies, was released this week.  I went through the entire thing the night mine came in the mail and I couldn’t wait to get baking! One of the recipes that caught my attention was for the French Snacklettes. Dorie received this recipe from Arnaud Larher (a Paris pastry star) about 20 years ago.

This recipe for Chewy Brownies is another winner from America’s Test Kitchen! The goal, at least for me, was to make brownies from scratch that at least matched my favorite box brownies. Needless to say, these brownies were outstanding and there is no need for me to buy brownie mix anymore. These brownies ended up being chewy, very chocolatey (thanks in part to the chocolate […]
