{food} What I've Been Baking - Part 20

Wow, we're at 20 parts for baking since 2020. That's about 120 recipes (not exactly since some things were baked more than once, ha ha!) There might be a little big bigger gap between this roundup and the next one as I'm away from home for the next few weeks, but maybe I'll still do some baking where I'm at.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted to make cookies but didn't want to let butter from the freezer come to the right temperature so I figured it was the perfect time to try these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with brown butter! I only made half a batch in case they didn't come out, but I was pretty sure they'd be delicious because I've yet to have a huge fail with one of Jenna's recipes (just like Tessa of Handle the Heat!)They were so delicious. Soft, but crunchy on the edges, a nice hint of cinnamon and deep flavor from the brown sugar. YUM.

Semolina Pizza Dough

On Pi Day I had to make pizza for dinner, right? I decided to do the semolina pizza dough recipe from our King Arthur Baking School class because I haven't made it since then. The recipe I linked above isn't the exact one but it was the closest I could find to the printout they gave us.

Cosmic Brownies

It's been a while since I put these brownies in a roundup so I figured it was time to share again in case some new folks are reading these! I'm almost out of my 1lb bag of Rainbow Candy Coated Chocolate Chips so I need to order some more soon. These are always a hit when I make them for Christian and I. We have to stop ourselves from eating them all at once (but they are very rich so that helps too.)

Classic Whoopie Pies 

Every month Handle the Heat does a baking challenge, last month it was for Whoopie Pies! I've never made them before so it was a good excuse to try. They are sooooo good and the recipe is really easy, it's just like making cookies. We loved them right out of the fridge. Perfection.



Cinnamon Star Bread 

I've had this recipe saved for a while and almost made it for Christmas last year but didn't get around to it. I thought Easter would be a good time too, so here we are! My family had brunch for Easter this year so I also made biscuits and french toast sticks, ha ha. My Mom made the rest. But back to this - it was pretty easy to make, the hardest/most annoying part was rolling out the dough into even and equal circles. They make it look so easy on TV! I also had made my dough the night before and it had been in the fridge, so it may have just been too cool to roll out easily, but oh well.


Chocolate Babka

I've been wanting to make babka for a long time but it always seemed so scary and daunting. Then I saw a video of Isaac Mizrahi making some on his Instagram and it made it look easy, so I finally decided to give it a go! It was a little messy but so so sooooo good! I will definiitely be adding this to my rotation of must-remake treats.
