TWD DC Lemon sugar cookies



These were very good and very easy. My husband said he would have liked more lemon flavor, but I thought they were just fine. Maybe a glaze for a little more lemon oomph?

TWD BCM Black-and-white marbled madeleines



Dorie really does give great tips. My madeleines always turn out great. I made my chocolate batter a little thicker by accident and was nervous, but they turned out very well.

TWC DC Salted Chocolate-Caramel Bars


I've made enough Dorie recipes now that many of her techniques and base recipes feel familiar. The shortbread base on these cookies is one of those. These were a big hit. I can't stop eating them and am frankly surprised that I still have some in the kitchen.

CTBF MPK Caramel Pork Ribs


I used the Instant Pot to cook the ribs, then covered them in the sauce and put them in the oven for about 7 minutes on each side. They turned out really well. My sauce definitely seized up when David said it would, but then the clumps of sugar pretty much stayed clumpy.

TWD BCM Pithiviers


I was a little nervous about all of the components of this coming together. But I listened to comments online and it really was a pretty easy dessert! Puff pastry is a miracle worker!

TWD DC "Corked" Breton Galettes



Dorie really does know how to make a seemingly simple cookie into a masterpiece. I used strawberry jam here to good effect, but something chocolate would be amazing. The dough is a little bit saltier than most, which makes them so good. Plus all the butter.
