Cookie Monster: Hello Dolly Bars

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

Call them Hello Dollys or Magic Cookies or Seven Layer Bars. Given that these chocolate-pecan-coconut bar cookies take about 5 minutes to throw together and 30 minutes to bake, I think we can all agree to call them our next afternoon snack. More

Wake and Bake: Banana Pecan Coffee Cake

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

If we all know that the best part of coffee cake is the crumb, why not just make a coffee cake with a ton of streusel topping? That's what I finally said to myself, and that's why I made this cake. More

This highly customizable, chewy, and satisfying granola bars are just the thing to wind down from holiday overindulging. Make a batch and bring them to work, or pack them in lunches. Or grab one as you head out the door for a quick breakfast. More

Bake the Book: Spicy Pumpkin Seed Pecan Brittle

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

Even though Edible DIY presents this as more of an autumn treat, there's no reason to confine the flavors of cinnamon, fleur de sel, and a kick of cayenne to one season. Liven up winter's monotony with the sweetly spicy crunch of this brittle. More

Scooped: Pecan Pie Ice Cream

Scooped Max Falkowitz 3 comments

Perhaps the best pecan pie isn't pie at all. Maybe it's ice cream. Because if you have a sweet creamy base flavored with vanilla and nuts, and swirl in a salty-sweet-gooey mix of brown sugar, molasses, and pecans, you get everything pecan pie is all about, without that pesky crust getting in the way.

Cookie Monster: Date Pecan Caps

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

The last time I was at my parent's house, I decided to do a little search and rescue operation through my mother's old recipe hoard. I was in need of inspiration, and she needed someone to pull the trigger on Easy Microwave Cooking. Between a recipe for Dutch Apple Cake (keep) and Tricolor Bean Casserole (toss), I found a recipe for Baba Rum's Date Caps. More

Cakespy: Tunnel of Penuche Cake

Cakespy cakespy 1 comment

For those of you who aren't into the chocolate overload of the famous Tunnel of Fudge Cake, I have configured a sweet counterpart: the Tunnel of Penuche Cake. If fudge is the inspiration for the original, penuche (a "blonde" fudge made with brown sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla) is the muse for this honey-hued variation. More

American Classics: Snappy Turtle Cookies

American Classics Alexandra Penfold 1 comment

There's something delightfully macabre about eating foods shaped like adorable animals. Childhood is full of opportunities to bite the ears off of chocolate bunnies and take down an entire school of Goldfish in a single, satisfying crunch. Not surprisingly, Beatrice Harlib's 1952 Pillsbury Bakeoff Grand Prize-winning recipe for Snappy Turtle Cookies, pecan tortoises with buttery cookie bodies and chocolate frosted shells, was inspired by her own young son.

Cookie Monster: Pecan Sandies

Last week I learned what it's like to eat like a pregnant woman. No, I'm not pregnant, but my lovely sister is, and she came to visit me in California. It was a glorious weekend of eating for four. More

Let Them Eat: German Double-Chocolate Cake

Let Them Eat... María del Mar Sacasa 4 comments

What is German chocolate cake? Overseas import it is not. The "German" in the title hails much closer to home and even carries a wicked local accent: German's Sweet Chocolate was developed by Samuel German in the 1850s for Walter Baker & Co. in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Years later, one Mrs. George Clay of Dallas, Texas submitted the recipe to the Dallas Morning News, and the rest if the stuff of history and industrial mass production. More

7 Pecan Sweets We Love in San Francisco

Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

I'm happy to report that San Francisco isn't leaving pecans to the South. Life would be too sad without gooey, pull apart sticky buns and classic pecan pie. The bakers around here have clearly realized that pecans are the perfect fatty foil to extra dark chocolate as well as an excellent match for anything with caramel. From tassies to oatmeal bars, here are 7 of our favorite pecan sweets in SF. More

Cookie Monster: Pecan Butterballs

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

These are the Carmen Sandiego of cookies. They seem to pop up everywhere under different aliases, from Mexico (as wedding cookies) to Russia (where they're tea cakes) to Austria (look for Viennese sugar balls). Though my family has no relation to the American South, we happen to use the Southern moniker, Pecan Butterballs. More

Pie of the Week: (Something Not Exactly Like) Derby Pie

Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

There used to be a humble neighborhood joint called Mara's Homemade in New York's East Village that served Bayou staples and barbecue. My husband and I visited it annually for shrimp and grits, gumbo, and ribs, which we'd wash down with hurricanes and Abita beers. And though we would be stuffed to the gills by the end of each epic meal, we could never say no to the offer of Derby Pie, which was loaded with buttery bourbon and caramel, pecans, and dark chocolate. It was one of the finest pies in New York City. With Mara's gone, I'm left to my own devices for my Derby Pie fix. More

Let Them Eat: Date Cake with Candied Bacon and Pecans

Let Them Eat... María del Mar Sacasa 3 comments

All summer long I interrupted serious conversations about bills and travel and getting ready for the move to New York, cooing dreamily, "Wouldn't a date cake with bacon be so ahhh-maaaazing?" I was a girl smitten with a confectionary Prince Charming, this close to doodling "I heart bacon" and "Mrs. Medjool" on my binder. More

Wake and Bake: Peach Praline Coffee Cake

Wake and Bake Carrie Vasios Mullins 3 comments

This is breakfast for people with a big appetite and a bigger sweet tooth. That is to say, people like me. But let's start at the bottom: the base of this coffee cake is delicious—big chunks of peaches are suspended in a fluffy vanilla crumb. It's light and moist and a very sensible little coffee cake with which to start your morning. The topping is where things gets serious. More

David Lebovitz's Butterscotch-Pecan Ice Cream

The Serious Eats Team 2 comments

It takes careful attention to prepare the butterscotch mixture for this ice cream, but it's worth it for the deep, rich flavors of caramelized sugar. Pecans are a buttery, crunchy complement. More
